Didn't say it was bad, just not up to par...at least in the comic book medium.

As far as Mr. Purves' niche in the animation field. I'm implying that that's where he apparently chooses to be. He found his niche. grin

Anyone read any of David's books? Not the Trek ones, or Hulk book. I saw a few of his books on the paperback shelf at Half Price the other day, one was titled "Sir Apropos Of Nothing," if I recall correctly.

That was adapted into comics recently, illustrated by Robin Riggs.

I've read most of David's Star Trek New Frontier stuff. It was okay to start, nothing special, but definitely got worse, got really quite crappy to be honest, as it went along.

Yeah I read some of his New Frontier stuff. One book ended with "The Great Bird of the Galaxy," actually manifesting itself. I was wondering if his works that weren't based on licensed properties were better.

No offense towards anyone but I thought it was Lawson that drove both peter david and erik larsen away.

Nah, Lawson got Peter David and Tony Isabella. Allen got Erik Larsen, around the time he accused him of tracing, among other things.
