COMICS: Now Tony Daniel Leaves ACTION COMICS; Working On Another "Massive Project" At DC
"Professional differences" led to the departure of writer Andy Diggle from his much publicised upcoming run on Action Comics, and now artist (and fill-in writer) Tony S. Daniel has confirmed he won't remain on the series past issue #21. Read on for details!
Unlike the recent professional and creative differences which led to Andy Diggle and Josh Fialkov walking away from DC Comics, Tony S. Daniel will remain at the publisher but NOT on Action Comics. As you can see from the following post on his Facebook page, he has confirmed that while he will indeed take over scripting duties to finish of the arc, he will NOT remain on the series after that time. He claims this was always the plan, this goes against a lot of reports we heard in the build-up to the highly publicised run. However, it's interesting to wonder what exactly the "massive project" he will be working on for DC is. Check out his comments below and be sure to sound off with your thoughts on them in the usual place! Will you still buy the series?
Yes, many have heard, Andy Diggle left Action Comics after the first issue. I can only say I feel bad he made that decision. I think it was the wrong one, but that was his choice to make. For the remainder of the arc I'll be working off his plots to finish out this first arc. So essentially, I become 'scripter' in the credits w/ Andy as 'plotter.' As for myself, I end my short run after I complete this first arc, which ends with issue 21. This was preplanned since last fall as there is another project I'll be taking on, and assisting with, a massive project with DC. I still think people will like this arc and I'm staying as true as I can be to Andy's plans for this story. In the end I hope he'll find it somewhat recognizable as something he took part in.
