    That Batman/Spectre Elseworlds story sounds great. I’d love to read it.

    Honestly, I’d have bought every one of those comics had they been made. All of them sound superb, especially the Legion one. Here’s to lost opportunities.

    I hope the HEXER DUSK and KROS projects will be made available through my LCS, as they too both sound excellent. All the best for those, Mr O.

    Love the LEGION story, John. (Long Live the Legion!) I love all those ideas.
