I had wondered what it's like for Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, and Greg Rucka to collaborate with Grant Morrison, who is, artistically speaking, in a different league. I don't mean any disrespect here -- Waid's Legion of Super-Heroes is one of my favorite comics currently being published. (Rucka's OK; Johns is kind of a hack.) But Morrison wrote Doom Patrol and New X-Men and We3 and Flex fucking Mentallo, which are among my favorite works of anything ever.

Anyway, here's an interesting tidbit from 52 cover artist J. G. Jones, courtesy of Newsarama (and, unfortunately, transcribed in that site's characteristically sparkling prose):

J.G. Jones commented that, during the editorial meetings on 52, despite the fact that he speaks somewhat quietly and with a heavy accent, whenever Morrison talks, everyone stops and listens – a courtesy that the other writers rarely allow themselves when one of the others is talking.
