I totally agree with you. I think Sam has always had potential as a character but he's been poorly served up to this point. His first series had it's moments, though it's continuity was all over the place. I thought the most recent series was bland and just didn't seem to go anywhere until the last two issues. Either way I'm super excited about the new series. I like what I've heard from the writers and I actually really like the art style. It puts me in mind of a 90s era animated show.

: Just subscribed to the new series digitally.
: Cant wait for Dec 7.
: Also, I grabbed Champions #1 yesterday.
