Hope Springs Eternal

The word is that there will be a new Azrael series coming this fall. You might expect me to be upset by that. Know that I'm actually not.

Why not? Here's my reasoning: I didn't show up in Death's Dark Knight. I didn't expect to. It was a three issue mini-series and the point of it was to introduce a new character with my name. They had neither the time nor the inclination to talk about me.

But in a series. That's one comic a month. That is -- at least in theory -- infinite stories. And if there's one thing that DC Comics legacy heroes can't avoid, it's mentioning their predecessors.

Here's what I think: the first few stories will probably establish the character, set up a supporting cast, and introduce some villains. Assuming the book does't get cancelled, they'll have to delve into some other things after that. How better to do that than talk about the former Azrael?

And if I'm really lucky the book will flounder and they'll try to gin up sales by actually bringing me back...

That's it, keep up that plucky attitude.
