As DC’s Dan DiDio has revealed to the mothership earlier this month, Straczynski will bring the characters back in a four-part series. DiDio said: “He’s doing a four-part series called The Red Circle, which features four of the prime characters from those series of books: The Shield, The Web, Hangman and the Inferno. He’ll be writing this four part story that introduces them, which will also include a semi, soft link of their four origins, and more importantly, setting a direction for each of these characters, and the series will follow after that. We’re looking for that to start in late summer.”
