Cheerful song broke out in the fictional country of Munchkinland upon hearing the news that Scott Lobdell would be leaving Red Hood and the Outlaws in April. "Ding dong, the witch is dead! The witch is dead! The witch is dead!" sang many of the country's residents in spontaneous celebration.  The Oz region had long been terrorized by Scott Lobdell's writing, which had been likened to being attacked by a flock of flying monkeys. 

The news was first announced by the Good Witch Glinda, who is presumably an outspoken blogger about the treatment of females in comic books.  Come out, come out, wherever you are," said the witch, "and meet the young writer who fell from a star. He fell from the sky. He fell very far. Scott Snyder, he says, is the name of the star."

"Scott Snyder, she says, is the name of the star," affirmed the Munchkins, referring to new writer James Thaddeus Tynion III Esquire's status as a friend of Scott Snyder, the fifth most powerful person at DC Comics.

"As Coroner, I thoroughly examined [the book]," said Munchkinland's resident coroner, Rich Johnston.  "And Lobdell's reign on the book is not only merely dead, it's really most sincerely dead."

"Hooray!" said the assembled crowd.

The fanbase began to celebrate and parade Tyrion throughout the city, introducing themselves as they went.  "We represent the Lollipop Guild," said one group, referring to Red Hood and the Outlaws large prepubescent Tumblr following.

"We represent the Lullaby League," said another group, the tired fans who complained about every issue of the series while continuing to purchase it religiously.

Tyrion then departed Munchkinland in the company of Geoff Johns, a straw man who lacked a brain, Dan Didio, a tin man without a heart, and Jim Lee, a lion who had no courage to evolve his drawing style.

Munchkinland had long complained about Lobdell's treatment of characters like Starfire, which had been described as "like a nightmare."

"But it wasn't a dream," explained one reader. "It was a real book. And you and you and you...and you were there, reading it too. But you couldn't have been could you? No, this was a real truly terrible book and I remember some of it wasn't very nice, but most of it was beautiful from the art side -- but just the same all I kept saying to everybody was 'I want to see a creative team change,' and they changed the creative team! Doesn't anybody believe me? But anyway, he's gone! Gone. And this is my room, and you're all here and I'm not going to read a Scott Lobdell book ever, ever again. Because I love you all. And... Oh ThanosCopter! There's no place like home!"
