    I thought this was a great interview, so I'm posting another excerpt from it. Rob has a lot of nice things to say about John Byrne & George Pérez.

    Rob Liefeld: When it comes to the team-up books, Marvel Two-In-One and Marvel Team-Up specifically, again they were the product of great creative teams, you had Claremont and Byrne doing a long run of Team-Up and Mark Gruenwald and Ralph Macchio working with Byrne and Perez over on Two-In-One. Honestly, if comics were the NBA, then John Byrne and George Perez are the Larry Bird and Magic Johnson of comic books. In the same way that Magic and Bird were credited with saving the NBA in the 80's, creating a new brand of excitement in the sport, Perez and Byrne really held up the comic industry during the late 70's early 80's.

    Between them both they produced top notch, classic runs on a vast number of titles including but not limited to Avengers, Fantastic Four, JLA, X-Men, Champions, Inhumans, Marvel Two-In-One, Team-Up, Iron Fist, Captain America, Power Man, New Teen Titans... it's truly staggering. Both gentleman thrived in the same period on the same titles and possessed a unique interest in depicting large cast of characters with enormous scope and detail. I mean they tag-teamed on Avengers, and in Marvel Two-In-One, they literally shared the load, 3 chapters each on “Project Pegasus”. Byrne handled the Giant Man, Quasar, Thundra chapters and George finished the deal polishing it off with the Wundarr and a group finale... great stuff. Beautiful art and gripping story featuring 3rd rate characters portrayed as A-listers for the purpose of the story. The New Giant-Man, formerly Black Goliath, was as important to me in that story as Cap or Iron Man would have been. Ditto with the Serpent Crown Affair where Gruenwald, Macchio, Perez and Gene Day made Stingray and Triton look and feel like A-List, top drawer characters. That was the best aspect of those books in that they would give lower rung, B and C-list characters the spotlight, giving them an opportunity to shine. Both Team-Up and Two-In-One expanded the Marvel Universe for me, whether it was a group poker game or Project Pegasus or wrapping up an Iron Fist storyline that created an interest in Iron Fist for me, they really expanded the Marvel U beyond the Baxter Building and Avengers mansion. But in my opinion, without Byrne and Perez those books don't work as well. I'd love to see a new Two-In-One that serves the same purpose again. Heck, I'd love to work on that book!

    By the way, if given the NBA analogy, you're wondering who Michael Jordan was during this time, that would be young master Frank Miller waiting in the wings about to explode.
