So, Brian Smith, the DC editor that suddenly rocketed to attention when he apparently drove Rob Liefeld to leave the publisher, is himself leaving DC this week:
Last day at DC this Friday! Good times, learned a LOT (good and bad). Back to freelance and creator owned comics for me.
He later clarified that he was “not fired, didn’t quit [and] not being escorted out of the building. Standard two weeks notice, no drama of any kind,” for those wondering if this was related to Liefeld’s attempts to name and shame him last month. Perhaps it’s because he was robbed of such a “victory” that led to this classy response to the news. Oh, Rob.
