JMS may not be able to salvage new Brave and Bold

In one of the recent sales chart analyses on The Beat, the writer seemed to say that he's not sure J. Michael Straczynski will have what it takes to gain traction writing the Brave and the Bold at DC:
Let’s be blunt, now: I’m increasingly skeptical whether Straczynski will ever get here. Considering the rate at which book’s numbers have been declining, I’d at least expect DC to relaunch it with a new #1, and, ideally, to throw in a new title as well while they’re at it.
This might make some sense. By all means, this overrated Hollywood writer should be a has-been in the comics biz by now, and his failure to seriously protest the wrecking of Spider-Man in the past few years, namely, by quitting his job with Marvel, knocks down his credibility. Plus, there was at least one other writer, Bruce Jones, who, when he went to work for DC after working for Marvel, did not succeed in duplicating whatever success he had at Marvel for DC.

It could possibly be that JMS will not be able to deliver for DC what they're hoping for. Also, I get the feeling that few are excited about seeing a handful of superheroes once published by Archie turn up in the DCU now.

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.
