This just in from Ain’t It Cool News — after Metal Men, Dan DiDio’s going for the monthly gold!
The man behind the Metal Men is moving to an all-new, all-different monthly series later this year, AICN reported. Here’s the quote:
Yeah, I’ll give you a scoop. I’ll give you a spoiler. You know what, I had so much fun writing METAL MEN that I’m actually going to be taking over a monthly title coming up at the end of the year.
The head honcho of DC editorial has been working with Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez on the current Wednesday Comics Metal Men feature — could this be another crack at the Alloy-able Avengers?
Despite my initial thoughts to the contrary, probably not, as they are currently the back-up for the new Doom Patrol series — as reader David Uzumeri notes below, this likely means that DiDio is taking over a different monthly feature, instead, just referencing Metal Men as the impetus — after all, he did get his start at DC writing Superboy. Thoughts?
