...are folks here planning on picking up Next Men?
I really doubt that if Byrne could really get something anywhere else, that we would be seeing any new Next Men at all. I've seen his work when his heart really isn't in it so I'm passing on this. I'm sure though that there is enough interest out there to make this a modest success by current market and IDW standards. I hope it succeeds.
I was there for a big chunk of the original Next Men run. I still had faith in those days that Byrne could deliver. Unfortunately the story unfolded with a dragged-out, meandering, making it up as he went along kind of feeling. It never really seem to go anywhere or really deliver any kind of pay-off.
I preferred his Danger Unlimited. If he'd brought that back, I'd be interested.
