    LOL, I thought the same thing. The cover looks really cool, I hope Threshold sells well (so sad Sword of Sorcery isn't doing better).

    It really wasn't that hard.
    -Cancel some of the weak ones.
    -Add the cosmic title they allways needed with a great writer.
    -Get some fresh talent with new ideas.
    -Don't mess with the few that are actually working.

    Plus, congratulations on Milligan for making Stormwatch so enjoyable.

    But Treshold is really going to repeat the Guardians of the Galaxy formula, ah? Not that I'm complaining. Instead of a bunch of forgotten, silly concepts we get funtional sci-fi on the DCU.

    He taught himself to draw again with his *left* hand and is now working for DC again full-time. The man is a hero to me; a genuine miracle. And I think his art looks just as good as it used to, if not better. Porter's artistic comeback is nothing short of phenomenal. God bless him!

    Ok, see, now you just made me want to buy the book all the more.
    Threshold is really the only one of the Edge line I'm interested in right now.

    As someone who has essentially dropped all titles from this line is their any title here worth giving a second chance?

    Have any of these books improved?

    Also what's up with these new titles? What is Threshold etc.

    Deathstroke looks like he's gonna lay some smackdowns in March.

    Those are actually some pretty big changes.

    Of couse they are, they needed to be. But all pretty obvious and easy to do.

    Stormwatch is better, Suicide Squad and All-Star Western have been left to do their thing, Threshold is the new cosmic title coming out in January to be written by Keith Giffen, Team 7 is good under Justin Jordan, and his Deathstroke looks like it'll be pretty good too (the first issue of that is coming out this month).

    Not terribly surprising, given that Giffen initiated the whole Guardians of the Galaxy revival, that iteration of it anyway.

    Yeah, I know, that's why I mentioned it. Giffen did it well once and he's trying it again. I think it's a great idea.

    Only sad Lobo wasn't saved for this instead of being used in Deathstroke.

    Btw, a question: is there any space characters not yet mentioned by Giffen that he can use? Other than the obvious REBELS, Lobo, Adam Stange, Captain Comet. Characters of the same vein as Tommy Tomorrow.

    The Omega Men, which Giffen has already worked on.

    With Comet now a part of the Wanderers, one hopes he capitalizes on that (presumably they'll be seen/introduced in the culmination of Morrison's Action)

    The Dark Stars, which were turned into Styx's elite guard last we saw of them.



    There are pretty much an infinite number of potential space characters, depending on how obscure you want to go. It looks like Giffen is going very obscure.

    Yeah, that was what I was going for. Characters like the Star Hunters.
