Jim Starlin Writing New Ongoing For DC; One of Liefeld's?


4577 Jim Starlin announced on his Facebook that he has completed the first two scripts for his new ongoing series at DC Comics.

I have just completed scripting the first two issues of an on-going series for DC Comics. Can't say what the title is until DC wants the news out. But I imagine a lot of people will be quite surprised to see me take over the writing chores on this particular property. Been having a (surprisingly) fun time with it so far.

No other details are known, but it's always fun to speculate.

Keith Giffen is launching a new series, Threshold, that has been described as being similar to what he did over at Marvel with Annihilation.

It's a space-based book that stars the Blue Beetle and a new Green Lantern, with back-up stories featuring Larfleeze.

No other tie-ins have been announced to be associated with the book, other than a couple Green Lantern titles leading up to it, could Jim Starlin be on board in some capacity?

Or could it be one of Liefeld's old books?

Starlin seemingly offers a clue with "I imagine a lot of people will be quite surprised to see me take over the writing chores on this particular property," which suggests it's an already established book that is part of the New 52.

Grifter? Hawkman? Deathstroke?
