When I decided to take the plunge into Twitter however many years ago it was, I made sure to follow both Tony and James, just in case they let slip hints of a new project. I think Robinson has said the idea has since died, but how many old-school Starman fans are still waiting for the rumored Jack-Knight-in-the-Orient tale, regardless of the writer's claim that it's dead?
Because of a handful of posts this evening (Friday, January 13, 2011), I've got a warm fuzzy deep inside that makes me think that Mr. Harris is in fact working on another JSA project.
So my wife is flatting color on a page for me and she keeps calling Hourman Minute-man, and Dr. Midnight MoonBoy. Sheesh!
I replied to him with:
Are you working on a new JSA project? LOVED Unholy Three and Liberty File (Starman is a given).
and received a reply of:
Either the man is a big tease (possible), or there's another JSA story in the works. I'm going to have to go back and reread those four issue to see what the fates of Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite were.
I had hoped that some of the pictures he's been posting lately were of Minute-Man and MoonBoy (love it), but it all seems to be from The Further Adventures of the Whistling Skull (which itself looks gruesomely fantastic).
So, let's start this rumor: Tony Harris is working on a new JSA project, possibly an arc for his old pal James Robinson's new series Earth 2, which is where the JSA were relegated to in DC's New 52.
