DC Comics has announced that after issue six of Legion Lost, Fabian Nicieza will be stepping down from writing duties. I’m sure the news of his departure will upset some, but there is some good news. Tom DeFalco is taking over for the next story arc.
According to Brian Cunningham, Nicieza’s busy schedule didn’t allow him enough time to keep up with DC’s mandated monthly release.
A master storyteller, not to mention Marvel Comics’ former Editor-in-Chief, Tom seemed the ideal candidate. He understands how to build characters from the inside out and make us care about them. He makes the fantastic feel gigantic and yet at the same time all too human and flawed. He puts his characters through the wringer, crafting entertaining tales that compel us to keep reading.
So what does DeFalco and company have in store? How about a Teen Titans crossover involving N.O.W.H.E.R.E?
