Final Grifter Issue

I basically just started reading anything to do with Grifter when DC re-booted as that was essentially my reintroduction to the comic world. It was a shame that the series had to come to an end but it seems like the wrong writers continued to be stuck on the character and he just never picked up with the masses like I hoped.

Judging by the content or lack of on this board, it really seems like people stopped reading him awhile ago. In the event that someone actually takes a look at this forum anymore, where do you think he goes from here? I know he's a part of Team 7 right now but I believe that is based in the past(I haven't read it at all). So, does he wind up on a team here soon in a new release or does he get stuck on a team like Justice League of America? I'm really hoping he lands somewhere because the character is really neat but needs to be handled correctly. The final issue sure seemed to leave the door open for a number of possibilities and with such a major opponent as Helspont out there, you would think that they take Grifter very seriously behind the scenes.

I guess only time will tell but I hope it tells me what I want to hear.

There are rumors of a new Wildcats title which will probably have Grifter, Voodoo, Zealot, Spartan, Ladytron, Majestic, etc. Team 7 is not selling well and will probably be cancelled soon.

I don't know much about the other but that's something I would definitely look into. I just hope it gets a good writer/artist duo.

I wish they would've just kept Nathan Edmondson on the title, it was actually enjoyable then.

Well,from the beginning the title was pretty bad but it entertainded me sometimes but since the arrival of Frank Tieri on the book it got even worse.
