Y’know, whilst I think this is good news, I can’t actually think of any DC books I would really like to see Bendis on. Maybe, a Batman book or Green Arrow. Maybe.
But, there’s a danger that would just be a retread of his earlier street level stuff, so why would he want to do that?
The wording of DC’s release causes me some concern though. This talk of multi-year multi-layer plans makes me think DC are planning to make him an “Architect” of their line going forwards.
I don’t think that’s a good fit for him, and I’d rather he follow the Snyder type model. A title or family of books off centre that he’s left alone to do his stuff on. Without having to play with the wider continuity stuff.
I’d rather see a DCU Daredevil or Alias run from Bendis, than a DCU New Avengers.
