I’m hoping this anthology series will be where I can go to find stories on the characters that didn’t quite make it to their own post-relaunch title. And where, hopefully, some of my favorite creators might make an appearance if they didn’t get their own book. I like anthology series or the occasional series of one shots or mini-arcs. Books like Brave and the Bold are easy to pop into whenever they have a story going that catches your attention. They’re also just as easy to skip whenever there’s a story or character that you aren’t interested in.
Most of the time I like my books to have larger, overarching themes and plots. But they can’t all be that. An anthology series gives you a nice variety of characters and stories and talent. It would have been silly not to have one among their titles.
The first five-issue arc will be a Deadman story from Paul Jenkins (as discussed in this Newsarama interview). While he’s not my favorite character, he has been quite involved in the entire Brightest Day story for the past year and I’d like to see what becomes of this character. I don’t think I’ll be adding this title to my pull list but I’ll probably order it on an arc-by-arc basis.
