That was a lie. I apologize.

"So, I'm kind of excited.
Just a few minutes ago, I got word that my next project just got the final, official greenlight. I'll be doing it directly after "Black Lightning Year One." I helped generate the story, and the writer on the project is someone with whom I've wanted to work for literally years, since I was just a teenager. It's going to be pretty damn cool.
A few of you know what it is already, but if you do, please keep mum for now."

Buuuuutttt...

April 03:

"Well, goddammit.
That project that I was gonna do after "Black Lightning," the one that got the official greenlight? It was a part of a line of books that DC just CANCELLED. Just got the word in a conference call.
I'm not worried about work so much, as I'm just terribly disappointed. This was gonna be a good book, and the writer-- Doug Wagner, you may have heard of him-- was doing a great job.
Not fair, but it happens..."

Here's all that we'll be getting.

Apollo never impressed me, but I would have given the book a shot. Looks like I won't get that chance though.

Yeah. must be due to the hair that looks hard and the shadow marks on his face. Not very exciting if you ask me.

I never liked Midnighter or Apollo. But I am SOMEWHAT homophobic."

Really ? Midnighter is mad nice in my opinion. I love his comics. Especially the Grifter/Midnighter series.

Well, I have no problem with Gay People. I feel it's completely there right to be gay if they want.Plus I like Midnighter myself.It just is sometimes creepy to me I don't know why.

Why is it that everytime Apollo or Midnighter get talked about, someone invariably brings up their sexuality?

Some kind of fixation. To me, the defining characteristic of Midnighter is not being gay, it's his notable predilection towards casual ultraviolence.

Books like this are what I wait for. A title that delves into a popular character, especially from a team book, where they usually serve one or purposes.

Cully hamner too?! Too bad.:(*

This sucks. I would have loved an Apollo book. It seems like his husband has kind of overshadowed him. Id love to see a solo book or maybe an Apollo/Midnighter book. Though I doubt that will happen considering Midnighter's amazing solo series was cancelled.
