Okay, I just got word that I can confirm this, so I came here first.
YES, I am doing a four issue arc of Legion. I love the book, love the characters, and am having a blast. The story WILL be a standalone, but we will touch on some of DnA's brilliant stuff. It should be a fairly smooth transition, AND we'll be setting up some hints for the permanent team to follow.
I'm so jazzed about this. To those who are skeptical, I completely understand. All I can say is I love the Legion and will do my best to tell a ripping yarn. The story is already partially finished and so far, response has been excellent.
Unfortunately, John Byrne is not doing the art. I'm disappointed because I think the guy is just a giant in this industry, and his recent pencils have been excellent. When you see his JLA you'll see what I mean.
HOWEVER, the art team it looks like we'll be putting together should NOT disappoint. Another of my all-time favorites, someone I've wanted to work with for ages. More as that develops!
Fun. Can't wait.
Oh, by the way, I've seen several of the upcoming scripts for DnA's run and they KICK BOOTY. Seriously. You guys will love them, I think.
Anyway, if anyone has any comments good or bad, I'll be happy to answer as best I can, okay?
Thanks, and best wishes always,
