Rich Johnston Dishes Major Dirt on DC Burbank Move

Bob Harras, Bobbie Chase, and Joey Cavalieri could be out, Mike Marts could be new EIC, and there could be friction between Geoff Johns and Dan Didio!

Bleeding Cool rumormonger Rich Johnston just ejaculated DC rumor goodness on the internet. This is a massive orgasm of rumors, a money shot that skeet skeet skeets all over DC's move from New York City to Burbank. None of it is confirmed, of course, but Rich, while entertaining to poke fun at for his self-aggrandizement and comical Britishness, is reliable in his rumors a good deal of the time. So take this stuff with a grain of salt, but Rich doesn't make shit up, so there's probably at least some truth to it:

Bob Harras, Bobbie Chase, and Joey Cavalieri might not be making the move to Burbank. See folks, when you said "reset the counter" for the Burbank move, and we said "not yet," this is why. If the move gets rid of Bob Harras and his stuck-in-the-nineties ways, it would be one of the smartest decisions in the history of the company. DC could move to their new offices, install a giant drill in the basement and attempt to burrow into the center of the earth in order to use molten magma to power their doomsday device, accidentally disturb a fault line and cause the entire state of California to tumble into the sea, and if it still resulted in getting Harras out of the Editor in Chief spot, it would be worth it.

Mike Marts may be a candidate for new Editor in Chief. Again... anyone but Harras.

Dan Didio will not be leaving. However, there may be some friction between him and Geoff Johns. Apparently, according to these rumors, Didio recently told some staff that "if they were siding with Geoff Johns over Dan with regard to reporting structures that they were backing the wrong horse." Johns is apparently under watch for writing too many comics as well, with Diane Nelson asking editorial to rat him out to her if he tries to write more than two comics, thus shirking his executive duties (heh - doodies).

So there you have it. Is any of it true? Our guess is at least some of it probably is. Of course, things can change, blah blah blah. Just remember, you heard the rumors at Bleeding Cool first, but when any of these things come true and Uncle Rich starts bragging about it, it was US who told you he'd do THAT first.

Also, we scooped him on this holiday party joke that he used at the end of his article. BOOSH!
