    That is good for writting progression and to get the bad stuff out of your system. But if you’re a fine artist you won’t show the shittiest paitings you have to a potencial buyer. Stephen King can afford doing all those things because book editors would kill to publish one shitty book of his.

    Thank you very much for the suggestion and it would be great if you could post your request under the comments of this video: Top 10’s – Who Should We Profile NEXT – if more people would vote or like your request and there are available videos/clips, we might do a Top 10 rules video for it.

  13. I would like to see Alan Moore.

  14. Tom Lintern sagt:

    Funny, his enjoyment of the writing process is the complete opposite of Stephen King’s. King doesn’t care for the end product and just loves the process.

    Best 10 rules for success

  25. lord funkbottom sagt:

    Stan Lee didn’t come up with any characters. Let’s run down . Jack Kirby the fantastic four the avengers captain America iron man the hulk and many more . Steve Ditco Spiderman Dr. Strange and for decades he wouldn’t acknowledge their participation. Until the kids who grew up and know who did what were adults and he was getting a lot of bad ink and I think the possibility of legal action scared him. Don’t take my word for it do your own research .

    I guarantee you if you told Stan, when he was just at Timely Comics, that he would have this much impact on the world of comics, he would call you crazy. No matter how much of a good writer he is, he wouldn’t believe it. Not in a million years. :‘)
