Irony and subtly are the first casualties
in the eternal battle of wits between people divided by a common language. So read between the lines or you'll fall through the cracks...

I LOVE his work, so - like I said - it's not an issue for me. I just find it interesting and I wonder if anyone else agrees.

Being a good storyteller is usually comic fan 'short hand' for 'I liked his stuff as a kid and I don't want to say anything nasty about the old duffer, but yeah, he was pretty useless'.
There are many comic artists, who I don't think warrant being mentioned and he-whose-name-shall-not-be-mentioned is definitely one of them.
If, however, we must discuss him further, I suggest doing it here, where his 'art' is actually on display.
Would you believe the opposite to be true. I never cared for Trimpe (or Kirby for that matter) art as a kid. It's only as the old dude I am now that I have really come to appreciate his talent as an artist.
But I'll say no more, as I've no wish to upset this terrific thread you have devoted to another terrific artist, and also favourite of mine, the wonderful P. Craig Russell.

Or, perhaps there was an earlier kiss that I missed entirely.

McGregor really bought a new level of sophistication to sexual politics in comics at the time, which was really pushing the boundaries of code-approved comics. Young readers today probably fail to appreciate how 'trending setting' the work of the new avant garde of young writers in the 70s were. People like McGregor, Moench, Englehart, Gerber and Wolfman were very much the Morrisions, Ellises, Remenders and Hickmans of their day.
Very true. One of the themes of social-criticism, other than those concerning sexual and gender politics, that McGregor really set his sights on in WotW was his criitique on the exploitative and manipulative power of commercialism, capitalism and the industrial complex. Ah... those "Golden Arches".
For all his verbosity, he was still writer who gave a damn. I prefered Gerber, of those names you mentioned, but I have read, and for the most part enjoyed most of DM's output frpm the 70 and 80's.
