Jim Shooter returns to the scene

Among the veterans making a return to comics these days, it looks like Jim Shooter is one of them, and he's going to return to writing Legion of Super-Heroes as well, which he'd worked on for a couple years when he first began writing.

This certainly is interesting. Mind you, there are some reservations I do have about him, knowing that he was the one who led to the plague of company-wide crossovers when he put together Secret Wars in 1984, which may have helped to ruin a lot of mainstream comics since and led to a lot of editorial mandates and situations that stop potential story development dead in its tracks. But there is a possibility that he could be good news here when writing a book like the LOSH. So, it's to be hoped that this will be good news, and not a cop-out.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
