Max Landis Expunged From DC Universe Holiday Special

The writer was pulled after sexual harassment allegations.

DC Comics released its DC Universe Holiday Special 2017 #1 earlier this month and among the murderer's row of talent was John Landis' son Max Landis for some reason. Joining him was artist Francis Manapul for a Superman story titled Driver's Seat, which saw Superman being forgiving to a first time offender.

Only the digital version included the story though, as the print version had a reprint of the 1969 story The Silent Night of The Batman by Mike Friedrich, Neal Adams, and Dick Giordano instead. DC's website listing has Landis and Manapul's names removed following sexual harassment allegations levied against Landis.

But in a post-Weinstein, post-Berganza world, not even the son of a famous director is safe.

The original solict info is below.
