So this is pretty much my new favorite ongoing. It's probably going to get cancelled, because DC is unwisely marketing The Hunted way more than Larfleeze, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Is that Coluan Biographer the Pulsar Stargrave, or just a relative?

I enjoyed "The Hunted" pretty well. Didn't care for the Larfleeze story.

Same here. I think I suffer from Larfleeze-fatigue... Then again, Giffen may be able to make him interesting...

I hope "The Hunted" remains fast-paced and quirky. This is a book that I could easily drop after a couple of consecutive "meh" issues.

I think The Hunted is only a story arc (if I understood Giffen's interviews) so I think it'll be fast paced and finite in length (which, given the topic, is a good thing).

I loved the last page of the Larfleeze story. The look on his face is priceless.

And as much as I enjoyed the trip down Who's Who lane, the cast size is about perfect. Most of these characters are blank slates. Keith needs to develop a few before expanding the roster.

It says on the cover featuring Caul & Stealth. That wouldn't be a nod to L.E.G.I.O.N.'s Stealth would it?

Apparently. But I don't think L.E.G.I.O.N. has been shown in the New 52. Correct?

It is supposed to be LEGION's Stealth, but as she seems to know who she is, she's not the LEGION's Stealth (and LEGION doesn't exist, AFAIK).

Although maybe down the line they could form in THRESHOLD...
