It was an interesting meeting. Howard said he didn't expect much from the book, but had he known what Star Wars was to become, he would've taken more care with the art for the book.
I find a lot of Chaykin's art pretty good, his DC Comics Blackhawks in particular.
Its with this latest meeting that I read Shooter's blog about Marvel's near death experience.
Jim Shooter's blog recounts how Marvel Comics almost died in the '70s and how Star Wars saved it. In his opinion it was Roy Thomas who saved Marvel. I think it was George Lucas.
