I'll be interested to see this interview... I approached Adams at last year's SDCC with my copy of X-Men # 56 (Adams' debut on the title). It had already been signed by Roy Thomas (I think I had gotten his sig at the prior C2E2??), so I made the unwitting mistake, as I asked him to also sign the book, of telling him how great it was to now have the artist's and the writer's signatures. Cripes, did THAT set him off! I listened with polite incredulity as he ranted on for a few minutes about how Thomas didn't write those X-Men stories... Thomas didn't write ANYthing! It was all him, Neal Adams, who came up with the plots and the dialogue, and that Thomas was an editor, at best. I didn't know what to make of it, but I was nevertheless happy for the face time. Then, feeling a little mischievous, I went and found Roy Thomas (I happened to have a copy of Dr. Strange # 177 on hand) and, while I was getting that signed, I mentioned the conversation I had with Adams earlier in the day. Thomas was pretty good-natured about it-- "Yeah, Neal and I have different ideas about how that creative process unfolded." Later on in the year, I read Thomas' intro to the Kree-Skrull War trade (it says he wrote this intro in June of 2000). He wrote: "Neal and I had an almost symbiotic relationship over the next four issues-- so much so that, today, it would be impossible for the two of us to agree on who contributed what to the saga. Just to use one prominent example: I'm 100% certain it was my idea to bring back the 'three Skrull cows' in Fantastic Four form; Neal is equally certain he suggested it to me." Thomas subsequently gives Adams 100% credit for the idea behind Avengers #93, praising his work. So it's interesting that both creators acknowledge this essential dispute... but Thomas ultimately gets the points for diplomacy and graciousness.
You are gonna LOVE his take on Infantino and the Phillipino artists of the '70's.
