Default Van Sciver departing Edge of Oblivion

Ethan Van Sciver announced that issue 3 would be his last on Edge of Oblivion. Probably due to a new Rebirth related project.

That is seriously pathetic. It's a flippin' 6-issue (I think) miniseries. How can you NOT make it all the way through that? That's just piss poor planning on somebody's part.

I'm thinking Geoff got to overrule the current project and pull EVS to help on that 80-page Rebirth issue.

Originally, through the comic shop owner rumor pipeline, this Rebirth stuff was going to be in the September time frame, and then I am guessing someone thought it would be 'fun' to end New 52 at 52 issues...

That's unfortunate, but I agree with DC's decision to pull him off to help push the new direction. They shouldn't have put EVS on EoO in the first place.

I read the first issue and the only thing worth flipping through it was the art. Glad I didn't continue with it.

Yeah those last three issues are going to be a real chore to get through if they have a subpar fill in artist wrapping up the mediocre story.

Man this really sucks. I rarely buy books that don't feature Hal Jordan but EVS coming back to a Green Lantern book made me wanna pick it up. Now I'm not sure if I still will but I really like what Tom Taylor did with the Injustice prequel comic so I'll wait and see who the next artist is and possibly still give it a chance. Patrick Gleason maybe?

No way. Patrick Gleason is already tapped for his own Rebirth project. It'll be someone way down the chain.

For once I'm really tempted on just dropping it and being one of those people that read it secretly by the rack. I wouldn't doubt if this whole story is just unsubtle filler. Don't know what the sale figures were with Lost Army, but having a rushed, juxtaposed story instead of continuing a previous ongoing story might be a decision for not having a story that carries into whatever rebirth ends up doing.

Sounds like "Cry for Justice" all over again. Starts out as one thing, big media push, then something changes because of the weather or a ouija board, and Dan Didio and company change everything and pull artists and creative talent off a thing to divert to other things as a result. Or "Brightest Day" representing the rebirth of the DC line and new direction... and arguably more or less succeeding in spite of Johns, but then just getting thrown away anything because Didio finally got his way on the Flashpoint reboot.

Still the same shit. No one's learned anything and these are the same people making the same mistakes and no one ever being held accountable or being replaced by true leaders.

Well, not to bring sunshine on you guys' rain parade, but the positive side of this is that ESV is going to have a formative hand the GLC rebirth.

All the GL books need now is Joey Cavileiri to come in to wrap them up.

Nah, this mini is small potatoes compared to those books, there really wasn't a big media push.

Agreed. This is simply a series to move the GLC from point A where they are doing their best Lost in Space impression to point B, where they either get wiped out or somehow, return to the regular DCU.

Drama pending.

I like EVS art, but the fate of the GLC waits for no man.

All they need to do is get the GLC back by the end of the mini series. At this point nothing that happens in the story even matters from here to the end.

Well that certainly sucks but I will continue with the series. Despite the poor reviews from the board I generally like it. I'm really curious to see how it wraps up.

Me too (on both counts).

I lost interest after the first issue, unfortunately I subscribed so I just collect them to sell. At least Lost Army had that extra insight into John. Van Sciver with another example of an excellent artists whose talents were wasted on a meh story

So, unless there is some huge shifting of gears in the final issue, is it now safe to say that this series DID totally ignore any setup from Lost Army, aside from the bare fact of them being in the previous universe?
