DC to reprint Marshall Law?

According to Bleeding Cool (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/12/21/dc-comics-to-publish-marshal-law/) and creator Pat Mills, DC Comics is interested in reprinting Marshall Law. I am a long time fan of the book and would love to see it come back. I just hope a DC revival would mean that a lot of the non Epic stuff also gets reprinted.  While I have most of the Epic, Apocalypse and Dark Horse printed stuff, I lost track of the character after Marshall Law: Secret Tribunal and had no idea he was printed by Cool Beanz, Image, or Titan Comics. There was also apparently a Marshall Law Omnibus printed by Top Shelf that came out in 2010. I need to find it.

There is also a really cool recap of the character’s history done by Josh over at Comic Attack.net.

Quick Review of Superman: War of the Supermen 3 (of 4)

This war is moving at an alarmingly fast pace, which is appropriate for a 100 minute war but a little surprising when compared with today’s “stretch everything out as long as humanly possible” style of storytelling. Comic books, movies and TV shows seem to take longer to get to the point. More has happened in the first three issues of this miniseries than in some other entire recent event minis that concentrated on an alien invasion and war. I really need to go back and read how the story got to this point. Villains are bad, heroes are good, bystanders are innocent and the story ends on a cliffhanger that GUARANTEES I will be back next week (barring catastrophic injury or death).

Recommended even if you haven’t read the previous issues. Absolutely a must if you have and were thinking about dropping it.
