It was the realization for me that I could ONLY draw the latter but had zero aptitude for drawing superhero action that I knew a career in mainstream comics was not in the cards.  Most of my characters look like they're waiting for a bus (and I could definitely draw the bus...).

Now I'm having flashbacks of those Paul Kirchner 'Bus' comics! :^D

If you haven't seen them just google Kirchner and Bus.

I think if Captain America #250 had come along a slight bit later there'd have been actual buttons/badges of that art on the cover for sale in the comic shops. I remember buying a Paul Smith Phoenix one and likely would've wanted Cap for Pres too.

I just read that Captain America run a few weeks ago for the first time. So good!

T’is a pity things worked out as they did—especially since it was in part due to my misunderstanding of Roger’s reason for leaving. Had I been more clear on that, maybe I would have accepted Jim Salicrup’s suggestion that I take over the writing on the series.

Altho, Shooter’s Whim of Iron was in full force just then, which was part of my reason for leaving.
