NEW 52: Rob Liefeld calls it quits at DC

by

The news that Rob Liefeld has turned in his resignation at DC Comics shouldn’t come as a surprise.  A few weeks ago, the writer/artist posted a hint of things to come, he just didn’t make it official until yesterday.

Liefeld isn’t going out kicking and screaming, as far as we can tell. DC hasn’t posted anything official via its blog, The Source, and we haven’t seen anything show up in our email box.  Though there may be some initial scrambling on DC’s part to replace and reschedule, Liefeld is quick to point out that he has nothing against the comic book publisher.

Liefeld did hit every one of his deadlines on the books he worked on, and his books did boost sales and awareness of the properties during his run, but the big question remains, “Will he be missed?”
