I'll check it out and give it a chance. I like Jeff Lemire's work in different things he's done. The art looks sharp. I'm buying far more DC than Marvel these days which was unfathomable to me 5 years ago. Hopefully it will be good and do well. Altho, Metamorpho really needs a better color scheme for that costume!
I too am buying less and less Marvel, and like yourself, that would have been unimaginable in years past. I really like Lemire's Thanos run, didn't like his Moon Knight but it was on the heels of an amazing story by Ellis. That was hard to follow.
I loved Plas back in Grant Morrison's JLA and Mr. Terrific's evolution in the JSA under Geoff Johns.
I think I'll give it a shot and see where it goes.
