Ales Kot Permanently Off Suicide Squad

WHY CAN'T WE HAVE GOOD THINGS, DC?



Source: Ales Kot's Tumblr

Ales Kot confirmed on Twitter that he had been pulled off Suicide Squad as of October's issue. Here's his announcement:

Dear readers —

Since the solicitations for October’s DC titles came out, I was repeatedly asked if I am no longer writing Suicide Squad. Yes, Matt Kindt is writing SS #24 and I am no longer writing Suicide Squad. Matt’s “3 Story" is one of my favorite graphic novels I read in the last few years and I look forward to reading “Mind MGMT" when I finally find the time to buy the first hardcover collection, which you can find here. Matt Kindt is a very capable storyteller who is doing exciting things in the comics medium and I wish him great things.

I killed my deadlines, I wrote my best, and I have no regrets whatsoever.

Thank you for the ride, for your support, for everything.

Have wonderful days and nights.

While I'm sure a few fanatical sycophants supporters will claim that we don't know that this means that Kot was stupidly pulled off the book, or that Kot definitely didn't just quit, here's what we do know: a highly touted up and comer is no longer on a series, despite his run receiving critical acclaim.  And, judging from his announcements, he didn't make the decision to leave.

I suppose there's a little bit of solace that Kindt is taking over for Kot, but judging from Kindt's workload, it won't be for long.

Whatever your feelings are about DC and your pissing match with them is it really necessary to be insulting and dickish towards long-time and frequent posters here that read and like DC ?

I think it's more likely directed at certain Facebook and/or Reddit posters. :lol:

I was just leafing through my complete run of the ostrander squad... What a creative time that was. Wish they would reprint it in an omnibus.. Complete with the doom patrol crossover, jli crossover and the deadshot mini

Can we just start calling the events of the past few years and the present "The Second DC Implosion?"

That group, myself included, is not as small as you might think. But apparently it sounds like you'd be okay with The Outhouse running off any posters here that read DC ?
