Rob Liefeld Bids DC Comics Adieu: Walks Away From All 3 Books



Well, Rob Liefeld did tell Cosmic Book News that he was going to be leaving DC Comics for creator-owned pastures.

Last month the artist/writer tweeted to us that he would not be far behind Grant Morrison, who is also leaving the world of super hero comics behind including Action Comics and Batman Incorporated for creator-owned work.

However, regarding Liefeld it was thought he was at least staying on with DC Comics to the end of the year.

Not so.

Rob Liefeld took to Twitter again to state that he is off all three of his DC Comics titles (Deathstroke, Hawkman, Grifter) as of next month’s “#0” issues. According to Liefeld, the books will continue under different creators.

Below you can check out some of Rob’s tweets, and it’s also become known that his Image Comics title Bloodstrike is getting a film adaptation.

Just finished sending my thank you’s to DC personnel. Officially got off the DC52 treadmill this morning…

Scott Clark will be replacing me p. Deathstroke. Marat will continue the work on Grifter…I had a great time at DC.

I believe in what DC is doing, but had to preserve my sanity.

I walked off all 3 books. Can’t wait to see any attempts to spin. I have every email.

The 0’s are my last issues. Thanks for all the love.

This is the 4th time I quit in the last 4 months. This time it will stick.

Reasons are the same as everyone’s that you hear. I lasted a few months longer than I thought possible.

Massive indecision, last minute and I mean LAST minute changes that alter everything. Editor pissing contests… No thxnjs

Last week my editor said ” early on we had a lot of indie talent that weren’t used to re-writes and changes..made it hard”. Uh, no, it’s you

I respect Dan Didio and Bob Harras and thank them for the opportunities. Again, I dig many DC 52 books.

You will also note  Cosmic Book News stated back in February how there seemed to be editorial issues with the New 52.
