Not really much information there--has there been a change to the concept? Is Giffen towing the company line or did he actually want Maguire off the book?
I think Giffen is toeing the company line.
It sounds like what DC wanted -- dark, gritty -- wasn't what they were getting from Maguire, which sounds like everyone wasn't on the same page.
If Giffen wants to do a dark and gritty 31st century book, I'm there. My favorite Legion
era is Giffen's "Five Years Later" era, which is all kinds of dark and gritty. If that's what DC wanted, Maguire is the wrong artist for that.
