Looks like Giffen's back on LoSH as regular penciler.

This property would be lucky to have Giffen in any capacity.

Because Nu-52 OMAC was such a financial success for DC, right?

No, because Nova and GotG were.

Giffen was the architect, if anything D&A owe much of their success with Marvel Cosmic to him.

So not only does he make whole genres better he makes other writers better.

So that's two reasons you'd be lucky if he picked it up.

Giffen is the reason Legion continuity got f**ked up in the first place when he came up with FYG.

No dude no one cared before either.

If they give Giffen free reign on this there is no reason to believe that he wouldn't be able to do the same for DC Cosmic that he did for Marvel Cosmic.

You're literally arguing against the only guy that's done what you'd like to see happen with The Legion. It makes absolutely no sense.

I don't think you can see the forest for the trees any more when it comes to LoSH.

Make it a low selling comic line?



It's the law of diminishing returns. See; Chris Claremont



I see the forest pretty clearly. Legion needs some fresh voices running the show. Not retreads.

But would it have happened if sales weren't in a tailspin?
