Well they've lost Brubaker, Millar and BKV in the last few years. It's not like they're keeping creatives happy either.

If it were up to me I would have Mark Waid, Karen Berger, Gail Simone, Scott Snyder, etc running DC and send Didio, Harras, Mackie, etc packing.

I think they ment as EIC.

Good question, because Dan DiDio's books were just BLAZING the charts prior to his takeover. :roll:

Friendly terms, so has DC, and he's moved onto TV pastures.

Yeah but wasn't he already an EIC at one company and left early on? Has he shown his work is appreciated to the masses? Just because you like his work doesn't mean he'd be a good EIC. I'd want to see someone young and vibrant.

A necessary sacrifice to bring back Wally West and order at DC Comics! They've literally gone later half WCW on us. I now expect Vince Russo.. I mean Bob Harras to publicly humiliate Jeff Jarrett.. I mean Dan Didio at the next convention.

What has Jay Z got to do with this?

An EIC needs to be someone

A) with innovative ideas
B) creator friendly
C) knows what sells
D) takes risks

Based on that, IF they want to find a new EIC I'd throw money at Millar or Loeb. Maybe Brubaker. They're already influencing the films and television shows to their respective companies benefits, maybe it's time DC stopped trying to cost cut and hire someone the market respond towards.

(For this instance I'm assuming Bendis is still under contract and Morrison won't come back)

Twigg read this:

Waid breaks down a Comic Editor's job and frankly this is what DC needs.

Since then he's had his books on the LOSH and a team up book cancelled. He's been an EIC for one company (not for long) as well as being fired from FF.

He's a good writer I think. Not sure he is suited to EIC.
