Dan DiDio, who served as publisher of DC alongside Jim Lee since 2010, is no longer with company
The industry veteran had served in the role since 2010.
DiDio had served as publisher of DC alongside Jim Lee since 2010, following a six-year stint as VP executive editor, and, prior to that, VP editorial.As publisher, DiDio was one of the main figures behind DC’s 2011 line-wide relaunch “The New 52,” which saw the company provide a contemporary make-over to its entire superhero back catalog. Initially a sales success, both sales and buzz faded to the point where 2016’s subsequent line-wide relaunch, under the banner “DC Universe Rebirth,” restored many elements dropped in the reboot.
. It’s unclear at this point if plans for this relaunch will be delayed or cancelled in the wake of this news.

DC IS BACK What happen to him Now DCComics please fire TomKingTK , abandon 5G, adopt Marvel time and STOP the constant reboots and continuity stories I won't miss him. He damaged so many characters, alienating so many modern fans, esp from 90s. He also damaged CassandraCain, StephanieBrown, BarbaraGordon, Batgirl, Oracle, WallyWest, Nightwing, DickGreyson, among countless others. Bye Felicia!
MasalaNoodles hope this makes your day better. 😃 YES! I dropped so many comics after they got ruined under his direction. Here's hoping I can start collecting them again Nice Somewhere, Wally, Dick, and Roy are all breathing a huge sigh of relief. Their torture may finally be at an end.
Here are all the DC Comics projects in development for HBO MaxHBO Max is scheduled to debut in May 2020, and will square off against Netflix, Disney+, Amazon, and Hulu in the streaming wars.
Whaaaaooo THANK GOD! now get rid of Bendis. How about some attention for robertliefeld, who right now is loving this news all while the Kickstarter he was paid for, almost seven years late, remains unfulfilled. If the comics industry wants to bury those that hurt it the most, start with viruses like Liefeld.
CapedJoel SalSaysWhat Comicstorian can we get a video on this please. Really interested on your insights on present and future for DC direction/ new editorial Thank you sweet comic book Jesus! Thank fuck for that!! DrPopCultureBG To celebrate, DC should just scrap the Generations and the other stuff Bendis and his cronies have cooked up, because everyone knows they are just going to flop, and flop hard.
This means DC and Marvel will definitely be doing crossovers
Opinion | Why is the maternal mortality rate worse in Washington, D.C. than Syria?Opinion | Summer Sherburne Hawkins: 'A pregnant woman’s risk of death should not be determined by her race and the state in which she lives.' - NBCNewsTHINK THINK Kinda like what happens with voting rights THINK That's woman's choice! THINK Drugs, dummies. We have Medicaid and WIC for low income women regardless of race, and Syria has much stricter abortion laws. Garbage article.

He had an opportunity to absorb the hits & present a progressive policy platform but he ended up looking rattled, disengaged & insincere.

I hesitate to celebrate because whoever replaces Dan DiDio might be even worse. But I sure as hell was not a fan of his decisions. I was especially frustrated by the obvious grudge against Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown. SalSaysWhat FIIIINALLY!!!! He created the horribly planned New 52 (Which did help get me into comics, but still), Ruined the amazing streak of Rebirth, and in general just seems to hate real character growth and good stories. Hopefully DC can finally get it together for good this time...
SalSaysWhat SalSaysWhat Truly a sad day for DC and comics in general. Didn't always agree with his decisions, but the man bled for DC and we got some truly amazing, once in a generation comics under his reign. I'm terrified we'll get some corporate suit as his replacement. Hope WallyWest will be okay ;)

Mix it up a bit Tom King... MWKronenberg Can’t wait!
Recently Concussed Americans March On Washington D.C. Demanding The Right To SleepWASHINGTON—Meandering through the National Mall as they forgot where they were headed, thousands of recently concussed Americans marched on Washington D.C. Thursday demanding the right to sleep. “Every citizen deserves to go night-night for just a few minutes without being shaken awake by those who would insist we keep our eyes open,” said Vernon Wheeler, one of nearly 10,000 dizzy, vomiting protestors who say they’ve been treated unfairly since suffering severe head trauma. “It’s time for people to stop holding up three fingers in front of our faces and insisting they’re actually holding up one. If we want to stare at bright lights or lay down in the street for a quick nap or touch the blood coming out of our ears, that’s our right as Americans. It’s nobody’s business but our own if we know where we are or who the current president is.” At press time, D.C. police were dispatched to break up the march after hundreds of recently concussed protestors tumbled down the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial. I've stayed up so long to see this No football players? Chants of: 'I dont know who I am!' 'Where are we!?' 'Im so sleepy!' 'I can't unlock my phone!'
