1. Mark Waid will be writing 'The Flash' again!
I love Waid's work but I've just never gotten The Legion of Superheroes... so I'll be glad to have him writing a book featuring characters I like.
Also, there's a fair to middling chance that with Waid writing Trickster again, Underworld Unleashed might still be canon. :)
2. Dwayne McDuffie, former writer and producer of the Justice League cartoon, is taking over JLA... AND he's writing the Ollie/Dinah wedding special!
It's not Gail Simone but it's one of the few other writers whose name can get me to try a book I wouldn't ordinarily read. And as nervous as I know everyone is about the Ollie/Dinah marriage... at least we can be assured that the wedding issue will be top-notch.
Now... can we get a guarantee that Judd Winick is NOT writing any potential Green Arrow/Black Canary team books?
Ah well... it can't all be good, can it?
