Ah, I don't want to get all whiney and overstate the issue. It was nothing worth worrying about. And I actually had a very nice long correspondence with Peter David, who was actually pretty understanding about the whole thing and has been unfairly cast as a villain, in my view.
The rhetoric level was pretty high.
One funny thing is that in GENERAL, S_D usually did only a few pages of each of my issues, and lately, DC's website blog THE SOURCE has been previewing as many as eight pages at a time. It's a little odd! :)
