Why would I want to read Lupin manga written by anyone other than Monkey Punch?

I guess for the same reason people read Batman and Superman comics not written by the original creators. You want more stories.

It's like Lupin S manga series, where it was under Monkey Punch's supervision, but the story itself was written by another person.

Sure it's always a pleasure to follow news adventures with our heroes, but all this manga spin-off are not so good as the original one (from Monkey Punch). In my opinion, the best manga series from the last years is Lupin M (and Neo M). Fun, hilarious, good stories, well-developped characters. The drawing will not satisfy everyone because it's more cartoon as the anime series. Lupin S has interesting stories, but is too much similar to the anime so the interest is not very high. Lupin Y has like Lupin S various stories, but too much sexual allusions (more than by Monkey Punch!) with Fujiko that is always naked  and the characters are too similar to the anime. If I liked a little Lupin S drawing (even if it was the same as in Cagliostro except for Lupin), I hated this from Lupin Y, especially for Lupin and Jigen. Lupin H is a disaster (no originality, no humour, no personality, no real stories except what we already saw on DVD or at the television) so I didn't buy the last volume and I don't know if I have any reason to continue it. Captain Zenigata is a good spin-off about Zenigata, but very different from the Lupin stories so I don't think that every fan will appreciate this recent manga.

About Goemon's spin-off, I will waiting on the first volume, but I don't think it will be a masterwork.

But why Miyazaki was so obsessed to draw this horrible fringle to Jigen in EVERY Lupin anime he did?
-----------------------------------------
I decided to strike for the recognition of Jigen, Goemon and Fujiko's sacrifice in The Castle of Cagliostro
