Taylor would be an obvious choice (putting aside how dreadful I think he is) but I can’t see DC giving JL to anyone not working exclusively for them, and Taylor is doing an Elseworld for Marvel.

    There’s really no one else “big” enough for the book. At least with Marquez you know it will be gorgeous, and everyone has hated every JL run since, damn, I want to say Robinson’s pre-FP run? I can’t even remember the last time JL was getting universal acclaim lmao, so Bendis will be in fine company.
    Oh, I hadn't thought of that - but I hope so. I've really enjoyed Bendis' run on the Superman books, but it's fair to say it's been divisive without raising sales enough to get away with that. A Bendis Justice League - keeping his "big" style of stories, as Invisible Mafia and Synmar type plots would still fit, and his take on Superman himself, but "resetting" a little could really be the best of both worlds.

    He's got one of the best Batman/Bruce and Clark relationship takes I've read in a long while too - so that would bode well.


    I've been out of the loop for a little while - with Bendis coming off "Superman" and "Action Comics" and "Young Justice" ending, so we know if he's staying on "Legion"? Or if "Checkmate" is still happening?

    I didn't listen to it either, but saw a post on reddit a few days ago that summarized the podcast. I believe King said he has no plans in the future to do another ongoing title and he only has maxi sreies in the works at DC and that his next trilogy of maxi stories are more optimistic in tone.

    With how good strange adventures is, I'm glad he's doing more maxi series.

    Legion hasn’t gotten a “final issue” solicit so it seems to be continuing. Bendis has said Checkmate will still happen but I dunno if it actually will. That was a Didio initiative, he wanted Bendis to trim down the spy organizations, with him gone plans probably changed.

    Here’s the link to the post: https://amp.reddit.com/r/DCcomics/co...m_king_batman/
    A Superfamily project from King sounds interesting. Would it just be Clark/Lois/Jon or would King want to include the entire Superfamily (Kon, Kara, Steel, etc).

    I'm hoping Checkmate survives. A couple of weeks back, he reteeeted a tweet asking if Lois was now running Checkmate (so I'm kind of crossing fingers for more Lois), it's not as though it was going to be an ongoing. Maybe he's retooling to match whatever DC's decided upon post DiDio.
