  1. The Fox is also returning for the Dark Circle reboot, but will stay largely as is from the Waid/Haspiel run. It’s rather like when DC did the New 52 “refresh”, they left batman and Green Lantern largely unchanged because they thought nothing was broken. But the Shield second feature that ran in the book (which I rather liked) is gone and forgotten, replaced by the new Shield book, coming soon, which sounds more than a bit like a take on the current interpretation of Uncle Sam at DC, which can best be described as a patriotism elemental.

    I REALLY liked New Crusaders. I liked the story they were telling, the style of the art, and the choice they made to go digital first with it. Sadly, I was clearly in the minority, or they wouldn’t be going this route.

    But I’ve said it before, I still think the single best new take on the Red Circle heroes was the !mpact line. And you know that because I interviewed you about them decades ago. They were fun, they were bold, they made great choices with where to go with the characters, and based on all the stories I heard from the parties involved, they were doomed before they went out the door.

    Every time…EVERY…TIME…they’ve chosen to go grim and gritty with the characters, it’s been a calamity. I could go on about the aborted Spectrum line as well, a try that rightly died on the vine.

    If I had unlimited money and access to lawyers, I’d sort out the rights and permissions with the !mpact line and run with that. Hell, just reprinting the original books would be a great start.

    But hey, whadda I know?
