Bleeding Cool ran the word that Rob Liefeld was about to start writing Deathstroke last week. It looks like I have a new source to trust. But we only knew a third of it.
He's also writing Savage Hawkman and Grifter, also from issue 9.
Bleeding Cool already told you that Joe Bennett would be drawing Savage Hawkman from issue 9.
Deathstroke will see the character go up against Lobo, Hawkman goes cosmic with intergalactic gladiatorial combat, and Grifter also looking at the cosmic implications of the Daemonite war.I think that common theme is quite deliberate. In space, no one can hear you run at the reader screaming, guns blazing
Rob Liefeld, writing as many books for DC as Scott Lobdell. Who would have thought? Well done Rob!
