Quite a few folks have had problems with Jim Shooter, some have beefs with John Byrne, Peter David, etc.

 

Todd Macfarlane and Neil Gaiman is another one--obvious reasons there.

 

The "beloved" comic book industry can have itss petty souls, like any other creative enterprise.

McFarlene and Gaiman would be the one that immediately comes to mind for me.

I must have missed it, but why?

There was a dispute between the two regarding the rights to the old Eclipse titles--such as Miracleman.

Todd operated as if he owned Miracleman outright ( he "purchased" the rights from Eclipse), but Gaiman contested it, and added Angela, Medival Spawn and Cogliostro to the suit, because Gaiman created those.

The suit went badly for Macfarlane--he and his lawyers pulled some dirty stunts, by all accounts, and he ultimately lost.

Along the way it became personal for both fellows.

he just talks a lot of sh*t about people. He also writes a lot on his message board. He insulted Cockrum while he was sick, and stuff like that. If I find the stories I'll put them here. He's quite a character.

That is bordering on slander. John Byrne is certainly a hard arse sometimes with people and takes no prisoners with his views (he would make a lousy politician) but he talks a lot of sense and is usually right in what he says. There are few artists working in the industry to day who can draw as well as him. 99% of what he says gets taken out of context by people who are generally just jumping on the Byrne bashing band wagon.
