As a massive comics geek and a fan of Peter Milligan’s Shade the Changing Man I can’t help but be a little excited that Milligan is writing a new book for DC featuring Shade. Here’s the blurb courtesy of IGN’s latest run down of new DC books:

John Constantine, Deadman, Shade the Changing Man and Madame Xanadu are Justice League Dark, a band of supernatural heroes united to stop the dark things the rest of the DCU does not see in JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1, by Peter Milligan and artist Mikel Janin.

As I said, considering how great Milligan’s run on Shade was in the late eighties/early nineties can’t help being a little bit excited about this. Having said that I am also a little concerned it might well be shit. Fingers crossed for exciting.
