I'm the same way with DC just now, but Giffen, DeMatteis and Maguire on a Justice League book? No way can I pass that up!

Maybe. But I would assume developing a series for TV (esp. if it was picked up) would require more time and focus. Esp. if Johns was in a more hands-on role like being a showrunner.

Well, Giffen has now explicitly said that this book has nothing to do with the Legion, so Nac can rest easy until the next iteration of that team: http://www.newsarama.com/18137-giffen-d ... ction.html

How can we trust Giffen? He's another Hollywood Spank who left comics at the first opportunity in order to work on cartoons!

Sorry Legion fans, but you're going to have to wait until somebody comes up with a take on the Legion. This is not a Legion of Super-Heroes book. They're not going to be going to Braal. Trust me.


Which sadly could be awhile.

Thanks for dancing on the Legion's grave. D-bag. :smt013

I think Hickman's Avengers is Awesome, thank you.
I like what I've read of Azzarello and Chang's Wonder Woman.
I like Gail Simmone's Batgirl
I liked the first two episodes of Graceland.
The new Washed Out single is awesome.

That good enough for you?

I think I've read enough Giffen in my life to have a opinion that I don't like most of his stuff post-1983.

How in the heck do you know and not know what I've read? Just because you and a group like Giffen doesn't mean everybody does. Look how many titles he worked on lately have gotten canceled.
