Hi there, folks. You may remember I blogged about how I felt JG was falling on his sword and taking too much of the blame when Grant Morrison was likely more responsible for the delays.
What's that you're saying, Dan Didio?
The fact that at a point we were waiting for parts of the script from issues #6 and #7, the reality came to be that we were never going to be able to hit our dates.
Thanks, Dan. Dan went on to talk about other issues, with one in particular grabbing my attention:
In February, again, we’re bringing the line back closer together and working to bring the continuity back in synch. In that month, we’ll have a series of books – I think we’re up to about 19 in all now – that will have six page stories as backups, and each book will be branded “Origins and Omens.” What you’re going to see in those stories is a little of the origin of each character, what’s essential to know about each character to date, and more importantly, a little foreshadowing of what’s to come with the character. Each one of the “Origins and Omens” installments will have a common narrator, and that narrator has direct ties to Blackest Night later in the year.
Can we say Martian Manhunter? That's my guess, at least.
