DC’s executive editor Dan DiDio came out the other day to announce that he would be the new regular writer of The Outsiders beginning in January, and he’s bringing Philip Tan with him to do the art.
â€œThis is an exciting time for me both personally and professionally.Â I have been a fan of The Outsiders since their inception and with Pete Tomasi moving on to some very exciting projects in 2010, I have been afforded the opportunity to work with some of my favorite characters. Most importantly, this also gives me the chance to work with the immensely talented Philip Tan, and together I hope we can meet and exceed all expectations for this series.â€
DiDio is taking the safe route by taking on this title, as the sales numbers are slipping, and if it turns into a complete disaster, at least it’s one of the titles that isn’t prominent on the radar.
The changeover occurs with The Outsiders #26.
