Yeah.. I'm gonna have to second nieto. At least with Dan you had one maybe two problems at most. This is much more widespread and the way creators are having creative differences is more a Harras quality than Didio.


Tell it to PAD, who read Dan the riot act when he maligned Young Justice.

Or Chuck Dixon, who mentioned how disgusted he was with Dan's incompetence on his way out the door.

Mark Waid has mentioned his problems with Dan over 52. (Remember, kids: "Countdown is 52 done RIGHT!!" :wink:)

I never thought I would say this but the blatant imbecility of Harras and Didio actually makes me miss Jim Shooter's tenure at Marvel in the 80s-I mean Jim Shooter may have been a douchebag but at least he was more tolerable on his worst day than the current mess that is going on at DC.

There you go. If they were to make a daytime drama of DC's editorial policies it would give Days Of Our Lives or Young & The Restless a run for its money,

Yeah but those were singular or to a small group of people at DC. This? This is everywhere. No one is safe.

Yeah I honestly don't know what they are thinking at DC Comics right now, and this isn't just the opinion of a few group of people on the internet. These are people that work for you and they are leaving on bad terms left and right, like they can't get out the door fast enough. I know that The New 52 brought about some monetary success to DC, that is a given, but almost everything else associated with the change over has been nothing less than an epic failure. I guess making money is the bottom line and as long as they continue to do so, I think unfortunately we are going to just more of the same.

:lol:

It says a lot that the guy prefers to write the "Alpha" mini over Red Lanterns and GLC.

Just read a little more of Daniels response and he is leaving the book when he wraps up this arc with issue #21, he says that was the plan from the beginning that he was only gonna be on for three issues but who knows how true that is.
