At this point, I believe that's the plan. The script for the first
128 page GN is done and in, most of the art is done, and a bunch of
the pages have been colored. So we're well ahead of the game. (They
need a full year to properly promote the book and get it out there.)

Atom/Joker comes out in a week or two, then it's Aquaman/Demon, then a
combo of Batgirl/Wonder Woman/Zatanna, then a kind of experimental
situation with two issues on a parallel track, telling different but
related stories with different teams (first: Legion of Super-Heroes
and the Doom Patrol, followed by the League of Substitute Heroes and
the Inferior Five).

On hold pending a new director. Also the political climate has
changed a bit, so it's not as timely as it was.

Final draft of the script went in to the network last week, so we'll
know something soon. I've heard we're in pretty good shape for a
pilot pickup, but I've heard that before.

Warners is more than satisfied with the results.

I'm finishing writing Midnight Nation as a movie which one of the
biggest producers in town wants me to also direct. There may also be
some movement soon on Dream Police and a new SF film trilogy I've put
together for film. And I've gotten a fair amount of work done on my
autobio. I figure it's time.

To the convention question raised at the end of this thread...I'm
seriously thinking of taking a rest from cons this year. I need to
focus on the work, and it seems like every time I do one lately, I end
up with the Martian Death Flu. Random House may do a book tour in
association with the Superman GN, but I haven't heard the final word
on that yet.
