Brandon Graham has a strong body of work behind him, but he is also a controversial creator regarding people's accounts of his treatment of others,  – and that was in 2018. He knows that with the news of a new series from Image Comics, there may be further discussions regarding that. Though he is unlikely to respond with a similar "diss track" as last time.
