CBR announced today that Outhouse favorite Matt Kindt will be departing as writer of DC's Suicide Squad comic, prompting fandom to hold its breath in anticipation of the latest DC publicity nightmare. However, as it turns out, Kindt was only planning on handling the Forever Evil tie-in, and will be scaling back to focus on other work.

“It’s just for ‘Forever Evil’ and then I’m done,” Kindt told Comic Book Resources. “It’s one of the things I’m scaling back on, because I don’t have time. It’s driving me crazy to do so much. I knew I could do a finite amount of time on that and do it well, but I can’t sustain it for that long and make it good, still — ‘for sure’ good. There’s a chance it could be good. I told my editor, ‘At a certain point, it’s just going to be like flipping a coin — it could turn out all right or not, depending on how I’m feeling that day.’ It’s better to take a little bit of time off and recharge my batteries.


"Phew," said a relieved Dan Didio upon learning that Kindt had not posted a long diatribe on his blog decrying DC's last minute editorial inference and Dilbertesque management techniques. "And he's still writing Justice League of America?"

Yes, we confirmed.

"So he's not on Twitter right now, talking about the genital size of our editorial staff?" Didio asked warily.

No, we assured him.

"Thank god! That's great ne... AAAHHH WHAT'S THAT?!" gasped the visibly shaken Didio. A Twitter alert had chirped on his smartphone, and the DC Comics Co-Publisher dove under his desk, taking cover. It's unknown who will take over as writer on the book.

We'll keep you updated on Kindt's whereabouts, such as his plans to publish a new all ages original graphic novel with Sixth Gun artist Brian Hurtt called Poppy and the Lost Lagoon, which we will rightfully gush all over when int comes out in 2015.
