Well now you've done it. No going back. I was always slightly interested in The Initiative - I've grown to like comics that are sort of patchwork quilts of the MU - but never picked it up. Slapstick just wasn't enough of a reason.

And now you bring in Prodigy. I know the death toll in this comic has been pretty high, so I'm slightly worried that Prodigy will bite it in his first issue. But if he doesn't, if he stays around, I will be a loyal fan of the Initiative - I'll even buy every back issue.

Treat him well, Mr. Slott - although I know you will: your characterization and nods to continuity without hampering yourself is too rare these days. Ritchie is a proud young man who wants to be a hero more than anything. His personality in Slingers was so strong it burst off the page - but maybe he's learned some since his escapades in Mephisto's realm. It'd be nice to know how he got his powers back. Joe Harris left them pretty undefined, but it was all about that red cape. And hey, if you have time for a Prodigy/Ricochet reunion/slugfest, I'd be fine with that too. I can't wait 'til May now.

I agree with the sentiment - I love Prodigy too (but I always loved Hornet the most...*sniffle*).

But Dan Slott isn't writing!! This issue is solely credited to Christos Gage.

Similarly, Iron Fist is now solely credited to Matt Fraction. No more Brubaker?!?!

What's going on with these most awesome of writing teams? Who's breakin up the bands? \:\-\(

All four writers are great, but I think I am going to miss what Slott and Brubaker (especially Slott though, since he started out on his own on Initiative) bring to their respective books. Two of my favorite books, at that.


So I say, "Damn you, Dan Slott! Come back!" \:\) But Gage is definitely great writer too; so even if it feels different, I'm sure the book will keep up the quality. I hope so for Iron Fist as well (I have to admit, I tend enjoy Brubaker on his own a bit more than Fraction on his own, though I do like both a lot).
