Harras: Jim had a great pitch for "Birds Of Prey," but as things came together in discussion and the creative churn, we all saw what Christy was doing on "Amethyst," and we were looking at "Birds Of Prey" and internally and editorially we were thinking of taking it in a different direction. The decision was made that we were going to go in a different direction than what Jim had originally envisioned. We definitely, definitely want to continue working with Jim, but at this moment, we wanted to go in a particular direction. Bobbie started working with Jim months ago --

Chase: He's a great writer. He's a great idea guy, and I look forward to working with him again.


Let's see, they have a great idea guy, with a great pitch. So, naturally, they decide not to use it, instead going with an internal idea, which I'm assuming somehow involves jackets.

Oh, and I love the term "creative churn." DC's Editor in Chief actually described their treatment of creators with a word that describes an agitated feeling you get in the pit of your stomach right before you vomit.

Re-shuffling the same old deck doesn't really make me want to read any of these books.


Well, they promoted the guy that bankrupted Marvel in the 90's so what do you expect?

DC is starting to sound like politicians trying to cover their asses after a scandal hits them. I seriously think Didio, Harras and co would work well in the political area for some reason-however I would never vote for any of them if they actually did that.

The Gail back peddling is no different from Marvel's 'firing' of Mark Waid on FF imo. Doesn't make it right - but this is how businesses do business nowadays.

Not happy about Booth on Nightwing - but the WTF for me is Jim Starlin on Stormwatch. The man ever really only had a couple stories that he's milked decades out of. No thanks.

I'll go you one better, which I read about in Marvel Comics: The Untold Story. According the Whilce Portacio, he and Jim Lee replaced Chris Claremont as the X-Men plotters because the editor "hated everything that Chris said." That's right, Claremont was actually demoted to scripter because the editor thought that he knew better than a guy who turned the X-Men from a cancelled title into the best selling franchise and a multimedia juggernaut.

That editor, of course, was Bob Harras.

Considering that Bedard sucks, then yes.

Sounds like how DC handled the Legion by dumping Waid for Johns' half-baked "classic" Legion. How's that working out?
