Creators React To The News Of Dan DiDio Being Let Go By DC

There are some people you think your going to associate with certain publishers forever although we know that the reality is that things can change at a moments notice. This happened a few years back in 2018 with Valiant Comics after DMG Entertainment completed their acquisition of the publisher and quickly pushed out all of the names that had helped bring that publisher back since their relaunch in 2012. Now it looks like DC has also made a huge move.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dan DiDio is no longer with DC Comics as co-publisher. He had held the position of DC Comics’ VP editorial and then VP executive for six years. Then in 2010 he became a co-publisher with DC alongside Jim Lee in 2010. For the moment DC has not released a statement about the release.

During his time as co-publisher, DiDio was a key figure in DC Comics’ 2011 relaunch event titled “The New 52”. Although at first it did really well, eventually there was a drop in sales that lead them to introduce another relaunch that they called “Rebirth”. He also oversaw titles like Infinite Crisis, Before Watchmen and Doomsday Clock. What is interesting going forward is that DC has been planning a huge announcement about yet another relaunch for the DC Universe. It is unknown if his exit will delay or change DC’s plans for the relaunch.

Reactions from comic book creators are filling up social media. Here are a few:

In the years that I have had the opportunity to cover comics, Dan DiDio has always been very approachable. You could always tell how passionate he was about the DC Universe as well as the creators that he worked with. During his “Meet the Publisher” panels he always made them more a conversation with everyone, wanting everyone in the audience’s input about what he had been working on at DC.
