This was mentioned a while ago, but DC confirmed today that Gail Simone will not be writing Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Man after her sixth issue.
DC did state that Simone will remain on the Batgirl title, but things are definitely shaking up around the DC offices following the first arc of The New 52. For those who are wondering what is next for The Fury of Firestorm, DC has announced that Joe Harris and Ethan Van Sciver will be co-writers of the series.
“The secrets are out, the weapons are amassing, and Ronnie and Jason have barely begun to understand the depths in which they’re swimming,” said series editor Rachel Gluckstern. “Once they were normal teens, now they wield incredible powers – and have caused incredible disasters. And it’s only going to get worse. Ethan Van Sciver and Joe Harris are kicking down the doors in this new chapter of THE FURY OF FIRESTORM, taking our heroes into the global arena of politics and power. We’re going to learn the truth about Professor Stein and all the plans he set in place, which are now spiraling out of control. Join us for the thrilling new story — THE FIRESTORM PROTOCOLS!”
