Ghengis Kindt Suffers Setback, Drops off Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S.

The horde leader/comics writer will be replaced by Sterling Gates.



Source: Newsarama

The mighty Matt Kindt, writer of all he surveys, has dropped off Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S..  Newsarama, which broke the story, is reporting that Sterling Gates is taking over the miniseries, which was to be one of seven titles written by Kindt in October. 

We reached out to Kindt about his decision to pull out of the book, but he refused comment as he galloped away from a massive battlefield, scattered with bodies and comic books.  His retinue, which allegedly helps him manage his massive workload, had been significantly lessened. 

However, a fictional version of Sterling Gates did give a brief interview to the Outhouse about his new project:

Gates: I'm really excited for this opportunity.  I love the characters and --

Outhouse: Enough with that nonsense.  Our readership wants to know how you defeated Kindt in single combat.

Gates: It wasn't like that at all.  DC called me --

Outhouse: Were you swift like a raging river?

Gates: No, no, it wasn't anything like --

Outhouse: With all the force of a great typhoon?

Gates: Wait, a second --

Outhouse: With all the strength of a raging fire?

Gates: Are you quoting something?  That sounds really familiar...

Outhouse: Mysterious like the dark side --

Gates: Oh, hell no!  You are not turning this victory into a Mulan joke.  This interview is over.

In unrelated news, Charles Soule now holds sole ownership of the "Most Comics Written in a Month" record, with seven titles still set to be released in October. 

Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. #1 comes out October 23rd.

I'm glad to see Sterling Gates back writing comics for DC. His Supergirl run of the last series was really the best (Nick Spencer could've held that title, but noooo DC had to interfere)

Apropos of nothing, "Sterling Gates" is one of the best names ever.

Agreed. I wonder what happened with him? He seemed to be a rising star at DC (friends with Geoff Johns, writing a semi-high profile book) and then he just vanished.

Glad Kindt is off the book the less this guy writes the better. I mean focus on your books you do a great job on those but your DC work has sucked.

Yes but between Hawk and Dove and Vibe, what did he do? He's talented and could definitely give a shot in the arm to a DC book or two.

How many writers have left DC before their series/mini even came out?

There's nothing to suggest he's leaving DC. Other (more reputable :P ) sites are reporting:

"When they asked me to do 'A.R.G.U.S.' at first I said, 'I think I'm too busy,'"


and

There's no indication why the A.R.G.U.S. writer switch was made, but it's likely that it's related to Kindt needing time for other projects, including the high-profile writing gig on Justice League of America during its tie-ins to the DC event Forever Evil.

Well, it is a tad bit unusual to have a creative team change during a MINI-series. Usually those things are set pretty much in stone before production begins, unlike an ongoing series.

I still think that having the article in USA Today with absolutely no mention of the previous creative team ("Originally solicited with so-and-so," etc.) makes this dickish enough to reset the counter. They've made no announcement at all saying that Kindt has had to step back or anything. I don't think it counts as an announcement of a new creative team as much as ignoring the fact that they had one before completely.
