COMICS: DC Loses Another Writer; Josh Fialkov Leaves GREEN LANTERN CORPS And RED LANTERNS
Just hours after the news hit that "professional differences" had led to Andy Diggle to depart Action Comics, it has now been confirmed that Josh Fialkov will no longer be taking over Green Lantern Corps and Red Lanterns. Who replaces him? Read on for details!
In yet another shocking real-life twist, it has today been confirmed that writer Josh Fialkov and DC Comics have parted ways. Below is a statement from his blog, further elaborating on why he will no longer pen Green Lantern Corps and Red Lanterns after this June's creative team shake-up's. It has since been confirmed that Pinocchio Vampire Slayer will co-plot Green Lantern Corps with Robert Venditti (The Surrogates), while new Swamp Thing scribe Charles Soule will take over Red Lanterns.
Just a quick note to confirm what everyone knows, I am no longer the writer of GLC and Red Lanterns for DC Comics. There were editorial decisions about the direction of the book that conflicted with the story I was hired to tell, and I felt that it was better to let DC tell their story the way they want. I’m grateful for the opportunity and I’ll miss working with the entire Green Lantern team.
This was not an easy decision to make emotionally or financially, but, I’m sure it was the right decision for both me, and for the Green Lantern books. The outpouring of support, your kind words and well wishes means so much to me and my family. In the meantime, I’ll be writing ALPHA: BIG TIME and THE ULTIMATES over at Marvel, and THE DEVILLERS at Dynamite. I’ve got a couple more projects in the works, so stay tuned.
