Is it time to reset the Has DC Done Something Stupid Today counter?!
DC's universe may be "Rebirthed," but it seems the beleaguered publisher can't keep from repeating the same old tricks. According to a clickbait report from Newsarama, superstar artist TBA, one of the most beloved and prolific artists in comics with hundreds of creative credits in the solicits of both Marvel and DC over the last decade, has been driven off of upcoming DC title Justice League of America over presumed creative differences. Creator walk-offs plagued DC's last line-wide reboot initiative, "The Nu52," but fans were hoping that DC Rebirth's renewed sales success and "lipstick on a pig" strategy of leaving the exact same people in charge with a different name would see a figurative rebirth for the company itself.
Sadly, that wasn't the case, as TBA will no longer be drawing JLA with writer Steve Orlando when it lunches in twice-monthly format in February. No word on what kind of editorial interference led to TBA's departure, but the publisher is clearly trying to sweep things under the rug as quickly as, announcing Ivan Reis as a replacement for the title in hopes that fans excited for TBA's unique artistic style would be appeased by the big name former Justice League artist.
We'll keep you updated when Bleeding Cool publishes a shocking tell-all interview with the normally tight-lipped TBA in the near future.
