Ethan Van Sciver is a long-time DC Comics artist, having been working for the publisher for 14 years. His work includes notable runs on Green Lantern and The Flash. Van Sciver took to Twitter to tell his dozens of fans all over the world that he would be stepping away from the publisher to work on his creator-owned title Battletoads Cyberfrog.
Maybe one day, but I want to do CYBERFROG for the next couple of years at least. I want to own something I create. DC is great, was good to me, and I had a good time there, but it’s time to try to get rich. :) https://t.co/fFOahUNgdU— ComicArtistPro Secrets (@EthanVanSciver) June 11, 2018
Just like other comics news websites, all we're reporting is that he's working on creator-owned work and there's no other reason he's leaving the publisher. None at all.
As part of his get rich scheme, Van Sciver has raised over $180,000 on his IndieGoGo for Cyberfrog: Bloodhoney, a 48-page OGN.
