    I would enjoy a Checkmate miniseries by King. Other writers I think who could be good are Tynion (sort of what he had planned with Kate and the Colony before his Tec run was cut short), or Priest, who did great political intrigue in Black Panther, Deathstroke, and Justice League.

    Thank you. I'm still not sure of if I want Bea to be part of it or just leave her in adventures with Tora.

    Also found this art work on deviantart. I don't think you see much Checkmate fan art.

    It's a good time to be a fan of Checkmate (what's Spyral or SHIELD??)

    We could currently use a title like that. Could someone explain why Harvey Bullock was part of Checkmate once?
    Oh my! You are in for QUITE a treat!! Rucka's CHECKMATE is sensational!

    Very nice!

    If Fire were Batman, she could be in both!

    No, Checkmate is huge, so the lineup is good!

    If Checkmate were adapted into an animated series, what would you want of it? Who would be showrunner, how many seasons would it run and would it be cable or streaming?

    If they do bring Checkmate back, should they get rid of the rule that each super-powered or otherwise enhanced member in the “Royal Family” must have an un-powered counterpart in a corresponding position of power?

    Well, Bendis is/was bringing Checkmate back, and I seriously doubt he was going to do that. I liked the whole balancing act of the Royals, as it added to the puzzles and relationship problems, but that takes a fairly painstaking writer to get right.

    What if they did a story arc about abolishing the rule?

    Nah, I would rather see a story about a plan, not about changing to a new status quo.

    What do you mean "about a plan"?
