Old drama, but I missed it - Liefeld walks out of DC, and takes to Twitter to blame other people.

Which I did see was met with a lot of "It's Liefeld", but others have walked away for the same reasons but been more quiet about it.

Must have walked out very slowly, with such tiny feet.

Nah, he dived out of the window, arching his back, while firing two rifles larger than him.

Also, armband.

Prevent all damage that would be dealt to you and other troops you control.

Rob Liefeld will one day manage to quit books he himself owns and edits and will cite editorial overreach as the reason.

He may not be wrong, but he's Rob Liefeld.

Gail Simone got fired from Batgirl via email a couple days ago. I was reading through a friends few issues of the new 52 stuff.  The earth 2 world's finest was about the only one I really wanted more of.

Creative differences.

Lots of people appear to be chafing under DC's inability to provide a stable management direction.

Pretty much. Much as predicted, the books are most dying down to pre-52 sales, they're not developing new intellectual properties worth a damn, there's a lot of creative people more alienated from DC than Marvel right now.

Reading Sean Howe's new history of Marvel, I've realized that the big two have been for most of their history way way way more dysfunctional in corporate terms than I suspected. But I think right now is about at DC is about as messed up as they've ever been.

Is that book worth reading? I saw it on the shelf and it looked okay, but not enough to pick up.

It's good. I mostly learned things about the Shooter era onward that I didn't know--the earlier Lee/Kirby/Ditko stuff has been covered pretty well in other accounts.

Seems the fan reaction to her firing was passionate.

Be principled, but not too principled.
