Keith Giffen Writing New DC Space Series

And I for one couldn't be happier with this news: Keith Giffen is writing a new ongoing series called Threshold for DC, set in space and which "will star DC's sci-fi heroes and villains" as well as having a back-up featuring Larfleeze, the Orange Lantern.

The news does come with a side serving of sadness, however, as during the interview linked above, Giffen says that the story "spins out of the Annual and the last issue of Blue Beetle"

So while we're getting a new on-going, we're also losing Blue Beetle although - and this helps ease the pain - Jaime Reyes will appear in the pages of Threshold as the action takes place near the Reach homeworld.

And Jaime's not the only character Giffen will be playing with. Along with a new lead - an undercover Green Lantern called Jediah Caul, Giffen's obviously raided his old copies of Who's Who and come up with this lot:
"we're using the original Starfire, we're not using her name, and we're changing her look a bit. We're just using that basic back-story she had and the environment that she might have come from. 
Another example: We've got Star Hawkins and his "gal Friday" Ilda, except in our case, Star Hawkins is a little bit of a shadier kind of street informant, and Ilda has been programmed with his ex-wife's memories, and they hate one another. 
My favorite so far is Space Cabbie as Travis Bickle [from Taxi Driver]. He's a crazed, paranoid street source for helping Hunted contestants stay clear, but he's a maniacal conspiracy nut like Travis Bickle."
Space Cabbie?!

In Giffen we trust.

    1. It does indeed - really looking forward to this.

  2. This one is going on the pull list. Which has been trimmed extensively lately, but I love Giffen in this arena.

    1. Yeah, I've dropped a few titles over the last month or two, but this is a definite for me.
