The fan favorite writer was not listed in the credits for Suicide Squad #24, causing The Outhouse's hand to hover over the counter reset button.

DC solicitations came out today, and aside from the cancelation of weird, mildly pervy Ame-comi Girls, there wasn't much of note... or WAS THERE?!
Ales Kot, who took over as writer of Suicide Squad with issue #20, was not listed in the credits for Suicide Squad #24. The always awesome Matt Kindt was credited as the writer instead, making it even more likely that Kindt will never talk to us again now that he's firmly entrenched at DC. :(
Asked about the situation on Twitter, Kot responded:
So is he fired? Did he leave? Has he gone into seclusion because he's tired of people assuming his name is a typo and calling him "Alex?" No one knows yet.
But we'll keep you updated, in grand and hyperbolic fashion we're sure if it turns out to be true.
