Despite claims to the contrary, writer James Robinson apparently hasn’t quit DC Comics’ Superman books.
On Monday Rich Johnston reported that he understood Robinson had left the titles, “and the DCU in general,” after an argument with Executive Editor Dan DiDio.
But yesterday editor Matt Idelson told the Superman Homepage fan site that Robinson has not quit.
I guess that’s what you get with an amber traffic light which, in “Lying in the Gutters” parlance, means “there is a heavy bias involved here, or it just seems a little dodgy.”
Robinson, who’s probably best known for his Eisner Award-winning work on Starman and Leave It To Chance, and his recent stints on Batman and Detective Comics, was announced as the new writer of Superman in February. His first issue was June’s #676.
