Breaking news that hasn't even hit the Byrne board yet==Next Men Returns!
Hit's shelves in December!
Ugh! Man Of Steel was the first of Byrne's work to leave me disappointed. After that, I really started to find his work going up-and- down. Nothing was outright terrible, but a lot was lackluster and failed to hit the same highs as X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Next Men was probably the last thing I really followed him on and that was just a big snooze. I hung in there issue after issue waiting for some big pay-off that never really came. I'm sure he had a master plan for this series but with the exception of the Sathanas story everything else felt meandering and made up as it went along.
I'll be interested in seeing how this does. Does Next Men really have much of a fan base outside of the JBF? I had thought those telephone books hadn't sold well, why would IDW gamble on this? Have those Star Trek books done well?
