Very excited to read Rob Liefeld's ideas for Deathstroke, Savage Hawkman, and Grifter in the interview with Newsarama.
I am a little distress that Philip Tan will no longer be working on Savage Hawkman. His watercolor work was the highpoint of the series.
It looks like Rob will be moving away from the organic armor concept that Daniels started.
Oh look, no pouches. I guess that an artists style can evolve. Take that sheep.
"Slade is a great thinker, a master tactician and deadly combatant. He's way more than just a gun and a sword." Thank you Rob. This is a much needed change from Higgins' work. Deathstroke has an enhanced body AND brain. "I go in through the front door because it is what I have always done" is not Slade.
I love his idea to have Grifter as the leader of the resistance comprised of "some familiar faces from both DCU and Wildstorm" against the Daemonites. (He has hinted at Deathblow in a previous article.) This is a much needed upgrade from Edmondson's "run and gun" stories.
He should be able to rescue these three comics from cancelation. I am in Grifter for the long haul, but I was ready to bail on Deathstroke, now I am in again. I am now considering adding Hawkman as well.
Oh well. Now I guess the Rob Liefeld Hate Train will pull into station and the sheep will start with their rhetoric.
