Red Pen Wars

There is not often a lot of gossip in comics from what I have read, but when the tidbits appear it is hard not to succumb to guilty pleasures.

A familiar source known collectively as “New York comics industry employees talking in bars” tells me that the last issue of “Final Crisis” is further delayed as it is suffering from serious rewrites. It appears that DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio was unhappy with the way the story concluded and the implications for the DC Universe for a while and had ordered changes from a, naturally, rather unhappy Grant Morrison. Considering this is the way he wrote the pitch for the book.

As a result, creative teams working on a number of spinoff and affected books have also had to stop work while the “Final Crisis” ending is reworked.

Expect more lateness, more annoyance and less likelihood of Grant Morrison doing DCU work in the near future.

Lying in the Gutters

Well, I just hope that it is better than Countdown was and Teen Titans has been, the former just being way too ambitious and the latter being, well… just no fun.

Still there is awesomeness like the Green Lantern going on so who knows, I’m in for the ride.
