DC Shocker: Tony Daniels Shocked to Learn He's the New Writer of Action Comics

Despite a completely professional creative team change conducted via Twitter, an irresponsible Tony Daniels is surprised to learn he's the new writer of Action Comics.



Source: Facebook

Readers all over the internet were shocked this morning to learn that Andy Diggle was walking away from Action Comics for "professional reasons," but none were more shocked than Action Comics artist Tony Daniels.

"Shit. I'll pretend I didn't read that," said the befuddled artist on Facebook in response to rumors of Diggle's departure, but what really confused him was DC's announcement that he would be the one to take over writing chores. "They said that?"

If only there were a way to let creators know before Twitter followers when they were removed or added to a creative team. Maybe something like a letter, but sent over the internet. Call it an "electronic mail." Even better, perhaps they could use some sort of device to connect with a creator and speak to them. We could call it... tele-something... telephone? Nah, that's crazy talk.

Perhaps it's better to keep creators on their toes with these changes. If a creator was aware what books he or she would be writing or not writing two months from now, it could be more difficult to make massive editorial changes at the last minute. In any case, stay tuned to The Outhouse for news on any more upcoming creative changes at DC Comics, especially if you are a DC creator, since we will know before you what you will be working on.

Honestly Herald, I'm not sticking up for Didio here, but I reckon Harras is the main culprit nowadays. He's the guy who guides the lines - Didio and Lee are above all that now, basically. And he's a tit, as we all know.

Too bad he's part of Dan's Gang, then.

We all point to DC as a COMPANY, a GROUP. As with every group, any stupid move a member makes reflects on the whole group. The only way DiDio, Lee, et al, stop sharing the blame is if they give Robby the heave-ho so he isn't screwing things up in the first place.

DC, the company, the group, willingly and knowingly brought in the guy who nearly sunk Marvel. Therefore, they deserve as much blame for his current sinking of DC as the man himself. More fool THEM.

Oh, I don't disagree. But I think all the focus on Didio kind of indirectly removes the scrutiny from certain other people.

Rich J just tweeted that BC is about to break another DC walkout.

He's one of the ringleaders of this piss-poor circus, and -- more to the point -- the only one who has been in charge throughout this entire 10-year decline in DC's organization and creativity.

And the hits just keep on comin'!! :-D

Yeah.. I'm gonna have to second nieto. At least with Dan you had one maybe two problems at most. This is much more widespread and the way creators are having creative differences is more a Harras quality than Didio.

And you want to hear the worst part, Zechs, if Didio were to ever leave DC at some point they would put Harras in his position.
