Title: Metal Men
Post by: Jeff on March 06, 2020, 03:51:59 AM
Issue 5 of the 12 issue maxi-series released last month.  I had thought about picking it up and had been meaning to ask if anyone here had checked it out.

But now I have a different question.  Because the writer of this series was Dan Didio.

Now that he has been walked out the door what do you think will happen to this series?  Was he already finished writing it?  Will someone else just take it over?  Or will it just stop production and no one gets to know how it ended?

I've tried looking for some kind of report online to no avail.

I looked the day I heard he was gone and have looked since and I have also not been able to find anything on this.

I, as a nostalgic fan of the team, really want to know the answer to this because I was really looking forward to it. Maybe, probably, they will hold up the release of #6 (I am sure the art is almost done on THAT issue at least), add a little more pages and kill it with that issue? Maybe they will bring in a co-writer if he wasn't done? Maybe they want to bury the entire thing along with his memory? Not sure, but I know as he was the lead on it they will have something in mind  :D

I hope they manage to finish it. After Didio's OMAC gained a lot of praise for being really cool (though maybe not the best written), I was certainly wanting to check this out!

Lets keep each other in the loop if we hear anything.

Will do Perry.  Iím a fan of this team as well and was only hesitant because I donít  normally like Didioís writing.  But if got some positive buzz I was going to grab it at least in trade.  Fingers crossed weíll get some kind of announcement one way or another soon.
