It's up there for me too.
I hope Lenard Kirk does the art, but it would mean he'd leave Captain Britain.
That occurred to me as well. Kirk is one of the most underrated artists working right now. It's fairly simple work but his storytelling is heads and shoulders above most of his peers, and the expressiveness in his faces, particularly Ken's, is amazing. I've read enough of Parker's work that I'm sure it will be good(Xmen:First Class is a really good book, and even his Marvel Adventures stuff is good), but I don't think it will have the same sense of wonder that existed in the mini without Kirk.
