DC Shocker: Andy Diggle Off Action Comics

The writer announced that he'd be leaving the comic on Twitter.



Source: Twitter

Andy Diggle announced that he would be leaving his upcoming run on Action Comics, a full month before the run was scheduled to start. 

 

 

 

 

Based on these tweets and one where he mentions "the gory details", it appears that this is just the latest casualty of DC editorial controls rubbing a creator the wrong way. 

It's unknown whether any of the issues he was solicited to write, Action Comics #19, #20  and #21 will come to pass. UPDATE: Tony Daniel has been announced to be the "Writer/Artist" for upcoming issues.  UPDATE 2: Tony Daniel seems surprised on his Facebook to hear that DC announced that he's now the "Writer/Artist" for the rest of the arc.

This, of course, is just the latest in the revolving door that is DC's creative teams.

And that's YET ANOTHER creator that Dan and the Gang's stupidity has pissed off.
I really should be keeping score...

Well this is going to make C2E2 awkward now. I wonder if Diggle is going to pull out of that? :smt017

FFS, only on Friday Diggle was still doing interviews about the book on CBR.

What the hell are DC doing that they need to change creators before books even come out?

Maybe it's just an April Fools joke that ends with the announcement that Rob Liefeld is talking over as regular writer :P

Diggle was one of the few writers that could actually make me pick up a DC book these days. Was actually on the fence.

Thanks for saving me money DC.

I've been saying this for awhile now.

If Snyder leaves DC, they are done.

Tony Daniel is a terrible writer. Good artist, terrible writer.

Christ DC, can you do ANYTHING right?

I'm proclaiming this, if Man of Steel is awful. I'm done with DC comics forever.

That whole company is such a mess. :smt011

I get the hate the DC are getting, but why blame them for Man Of Steel? They have no control over movies.
