I know Peter Milligan's run so far is extremes of love, so it makes sense... but I will the fans respond well?
 
As for Greek Street, if it was Finite and already not super long, why did they cut it even shorter?

hmm, if he doesn't have plans on making Shade a regular character I think he should do a twelve issue series or something
 
but he described what makes Shade awesome so perfectly (which of course he should since he made Shade awesome)

@aztek the lost:  As long as Peter Milligan is on HB I think JC and Shade are okay for the Mandate.

oh damn, I just realized Shade is a DC character too...
 
pissed!
 
my two favorite Vertigo characters began as DC characters and for that reason they may both be taken away from me...maybe this will be the push from comics that I spoke of yesterday

@aztek the lost:  I shouldn't of mentioned that....
So Lucifer becomes the DCU devil and the First of the Fallen wins as the true Vertigo Devil now?

@Silkcuts: Lucifer better stay in the void, that was the perfect ending, I don't want to see it tampered with...besides DC has like fifteen different rulers of Hell...and to make Lucifer have anything to do with Hell would ruin his entire character

@aztek the lost: I agree, but its Didio.  Lucifer is the name everyone associates with the Devil... so I pray our buddy Lucifer is untouched in the DCU.
 
I didn't read the 2004's The Witching and Lucifer is listed for 3 issue... how was that series?  Does he have an impact on the series?

@Silkcuts: my prayers that DC would keep its greedy, desperate fingers to itself proved futile...maybe I need to look into a new deity
 
And The Witching was alright and although Lucifer was essential to the series, it was essential to him...he puts things in motion in the beginning and shows off his powers near the end

@aztek the lost: I found a few issues cheap like $1 each, but not a lot... Should I even bother trying to hunt them down?

@Silkcuts: if you want a Lucifer fix, no, if you want a decent story about some teenage girls, magical orgies and a few moments of humor then sure, it certainly wasn't a stand-out comic but it wasn't bad

A shame Greek Street is ending. Hopefully, he can wrap things up well.

I don't think they gave him time...only two issues left and we haven't even started concluding

@aztek the lost:  Yeah, I was pretty shocked when I found out there are only two issues left. I think he can pull it off, though. But it will be tainted. No way around that.

Ajax will be either really out of place or the ending will be so brilliant I have to place Peter Milligan as my 3rd favortire writer after after Alan Moore and then Grant Morrison. If the ending is not mind blowing I don't blame him since I agree with aztek.  Two issuse to wrap up, when Ajax should of been longer.

@Silkcuts: yeah, we already saw the solicit for #15 before they announced they would end it at #16...I know he probably knew it before us but still, even if the ending turns out amazing I think the execs handled this terribly...notice of the four writer's whose stories were thrown out (Wilson, Dysart, Milligan, Wagner) that Wilson and Dysart both said they were given time to complete it properly whereas unless I missed it Milligan has said nothing of the sort...as for Wagner, like Lapham with Young Liars, he wrote Madame Xanadu is such a way it could be canceled after any arc and still be a complete story

@aztek the lost:  I wonder when Vertigo told PM?  I think after issue #1 of Ajax, hence the condensing of it.  
 
With Vertigo miss handling writers, who knows what would happen.  Wilson's last work was for Girl Comics I think.  Dysart worked Vertigo still... Lapham looks like he is going Marvel.  Wagner better be given Madame Xanadu for the DCU.
 
As for Peter Milligan, I am so confused if DC is giving him a push or not.... Extremist reprinted?  Enigma still out of print? Egypt never collected... I am sure there is stronger Vertigo releases by him before Extremist.  So are they trying to sink him?  Shade and Human Target are taking forever to be released.  The first 10 issue of the ongoing once were trades, so whats taking so long? I want to sell off my singles already.
 
Milligan also wrote Detective Comics in the 90s, I have I think 6 of them.  I think it was 10 in total... enough to make a Batman trade.  I think the co-written work with Grant Morrison, "wild boys" I think it was suppose to be called, would of been the best thing to release to increase exposure to Peter Milligan.  If it wasn't for the many co-written Morrison/Millar books, who Mark Millar be as big?
