    Aaand I just turned in the script for issue two of Terminator: The Final Battle. Here's the b&w inked cover page for issue one. Tired but pleased.

    Yep. Joe seems to be doing his best to get ahead of the game. It’s a good move, and I’m sure it’ll make all the difference. With the kind of numbers that the returned Joe’s Comics imprint has been doing, I was hoping he’d just focus on creator owned work as opposed to ‘work for hire’ gigs. BUT, I can definitely see the appeal of him taking on that old favourite ‘The Twilight Zone’.

    In any case, it’s going to be a good year for us as fans, with so much JMS penned stuff hitting the stands.

I've seen it happen with many creators in the comics field. But, with so much output, there's bound to be some really great stuff amongst the many titles.

    Sorry, my information is a bit out of date. I'd never gone back to see if those titles had been finished. I had totally lost track of what eventually happened with The Twelve! (I really must read the rest of that!)

    Shame on DC then, I hate it when publishers mess with things in the middle of a story.

    In addition, JMS gave them notice that they needed to find a new writer and they chose not to. Ain't his fault/problem.

    Sometimes he doesn't. There are plenty of projects for the big two (Marvel / DC) that were left unfinished mid-run. See: Superman: Grounded, Wonder Woman, Supreme Power, The Twelve, Thor (less so in this case, he got a good run in before exiting due to an ill timed cross over event).

    Some of the above titles he left for good reasons, others I *think* because of work load and wanting to get out of monthly comics. But still it's a shame to see work left unfinished. He caught a lot of heat from comics fans for the more high profile ones (Supes and Wonder Woman).

I understand trying to get things off the ground, but he can't do everything! Or can he?! Could he be a superhero who's superpower is being able to write stories. . . Meh, it's a living.
    You are right. JMS has said that other writers could take over from him once a series was established. I'm 100% certain this is something we'll see, because it seems inhuman to maintain so many different books.

    I have noted that his 'work for hire' stuff looks to be 12 issue limited runs or mini series, which seems sensible. Will be interesting to see show all these project fare and if the quality remains consistent. I do worry he's taking on too much.

    Warren Ellis is guilty of the same thing. I'm still bummed we're STILL waiting for more issues of Fell, and that Desolation Jones also went the way of the dodo.
