I've been hoping for this for a while now though so that is undoubtedly coloring it.
What's strange is that now that we might be here, prospects are slimmer than ever. Snyder and Lemire booked up, Cornell gone (and honestly he's fallen considerably in my eyes), Roberson gone, Diggle on Action, Gillen and Hickman and Aaron all booked up at Marvel, JMS putting out some of the worst material of his career consistently, Darwyn Cooke completely uninterested in the superhero genre....
I think there are some guys who could do some decent work that are established enough to shoulder the responsibility, but I honestly don't know. Jeff Parker, I suppose. JMS. Diggle, if he's got it in him.
At this point, to make me really ecstatic they'd have to make a big steal from Marvel or take a HUGE risk for an up and comer, or something from other media.
