Dan Didio Sort of Responds to Ales Kot Removal

Asked on Twitter why DC fired Ales Kot from Suicide Squad, Didio responded, "I am not a crook."

UPDATE!!! (update update update)

Jude Terror here with an update on yesterday's Ales Kot story. It seems some proactive fans took to Twitter to ask Dan Didio himself what the hell DC is thinking getting rid of beloved writer Ales Kot, who was replaced by equally beloved but still unexpected Matt Kindt on Suicide Squad #24. Didio tried to play dumb, then immediately slipped into corporate double-speak, claiming that the creative change was planned from the start and that Matt Kindt is integral to Forever Evil. After he's asked why niether Kot nor Kindt are saying it was planned from the start, why Kot seemed displeased by the news of his own departure, and why DC declined to comment on Newsarama's story about Kot's departure this morning, Didio stopped replying (at least at the time of this writing).

Here's a screenshot, taken last night:

 

Damn, dude. What are you, the US Government? Are you a goddamn pod person? Why can't you answer a question? It must be impossible to work with you.

"Hey Dan, what do you want to have for lunch today?"

"Food is delicious. I definitely eat food. Like a person."

"What? That wasn't the question."

"LOL Jude. Three balanced meals are are important for your health, and DC Entertainment supports health."

WTF?

Just answer a direct question and be honest. Why was Ales Kot replaced? As was pointed out, promotion for Suicide Squad prior to this implied Kot's run would be more long-term, and the behavior from everyone involved makes it obvious this wasn't "planned."

Kot also seems confused about the whole exchange:

 

 

So what happened? Did you have a falling out? Did you just want to go in a different direction? Do you feel it's none of our business? Just say that.

The truth will set you free, Dan.

I don't think Didio has the first clue what's going on. He just leaves everything up to Harras to mismanage then sort of shrugs dumbly when asked anything.

To me it's the definition of mismanagement to get a writer like Ales Kot onboard DC's freelance writing staff and lose them, if that's what happened. The editor, or whoever made the decisions that led to that, should be let go.

At this point I believe that the average meeting at DC goes something like this:

Writer #1: I have an idea!

DC: You're fired. Anybody else?

Writer #2: Does anybody remember that comic book that came out between 1992 and 1999...

DC: We like where this is going, keep talking.

I love how the Didiot's immediate response to a comment about DC's poor treatment of a creator is basically "You're going to have to be more specific..."

Any up and coming writer should take a lesson from this: Stay the hell away from DC! Go to Image, Boom, or some other company that treats it talent right.

Well it is DC and they do some really stupid things. It is hard for the poor man to know just what his company screwed up today.
