...I can't believe CAL actually deferred to me on a topic. Guess Californians better put on their water wings, because the Left Coast is bound to tumble into the sea here in the next few minutes :-P (*)

Hey, OM, if you read this, how about posting your own list. I figure you might be the only guy on here who has read Legion longer than I have.
...I actually agree with you on Steve L, although a Steve Dillon Legion
would be just as acceptable. Dillon has this way about facial expressions on people who have been totally fucked over without any real warning that always has me laughing to tears. The concept of Validus having one of those "...Fuck me." looks after having gotten that sucker punch from M'Onel would be a work of art, and if anyone was going to give us a full view of Ferro's unmasked face, it would have to be Dillon.
"Uh, Ferro, you said you had an ancestor who was a rock singer in the 20th Century?"
"Uh, yeah, Brainy. He was my Gestapo uncle Hugo Root's kid. I believe he was called 'Arseface' or something like that."
"Ah. Much is explained..."
...Hmm, who else, tho. Scot Kollins would be another one, as I'd love to see his styling on 31st Century Metropolis, as well as a bit more spotlight on XS that would result :-). Kieron Dwyer's another one, although I understand he's somewhat down on group books these days. And Pat Broderic would be a perfect "old school" artist to bring back on the book as well.
...Of course, the real question we should all be asking is, if Wade's returning to the book, how soon will it be before he reboots the whole mess and he renews his promise to break my nose for bitching about it? :-) :-) :-)
(*) Left Coasters, we expect you to provide damage reports out there if this happens!

...I officially will offer DC my left gonad if they put Carlos on the book. Then again, I'm crazy enough to make the same offer if they let Ted McKeever do just a couple of issues.
Kyle Baker on the Legion
, anyone? :-P

Too bad. I really enjoyed their run. Sure, I know several, more old-school, L* fans who didn't like the darkening elements DnA introduced, but c'mon, they breathed life back into the books, and that's a good, right?
...Most, if not all Legion fans had no real issues with D&A's run (**). The REAL
issue was with Coipel's early and mid-run art, which can still be described as a lame-assed Manga knockoff where all the characters look as if they haven't bathed in the week since they were drug thru a cow pasture full of cactus, all due to the fact that they were drawn with a dull toothbrush instead of a Koh-I-Noor and using lemons for head models.
...But, to be honest, I'd tolerate Coipel being put back on the book if D&A were to stay. As I've said in the past, the workaround that I developed was to take off my glasses, which blurred the "art" enough to inhibit the nausea reflex and allow me to still enjoy the story from a writing aspect.
(**) Save, perhaps, for the lack of Andromeda in the book, or yet another creative team's refusal to bring back Nemesis Kid :-P

It sucks that they're leaving, but someone's got to make room for Grant Morrison, right?
...On the other hand, with our luck it'll be Warren Ellis. Which means after two issues, we'll be waiting for the third issue almost two years later with nothing but lame-assed excuses in the meantime :-P :-P :-P

I can`t believe Brevoort passed over giving these guys Avengers instead of our friend Chuck.
...I strongly suspect that particular assignment might not have been Tom's decision to make this go-around. Considering how Austen's a certified hack, and he's really buddy-buddy with the Q, odds are is that the Q called Tom and said "give him the job."
