"The short answer is that I wish I could do more [comics work] because I love the medium so much, and these are stories I love to tell," Loeb told CBR News recently. "But it's challenging when you're running Marvel Television to find the time. Oddly enough, when I was working on 'Smallville,' 'Lost' and 'Heroes,' they were my day job. I had the time to switch gears and write comics. That became a breakaway from what I was doing in TV. But now when you sit and you work all day on Spider-Man and the Hulk and the Avengers, to then go home and write Spider-Man, the Hulk and the Avengers, it becomes a challenge. So now I'm looking for situations I can work in that will really benefit everybody."
