James Robinson will no longer be writing Earth 2 after issue #16. He announced the leave on Twitter yesterday, along with an announcement of his full departure from DC’s writing stable. His words exactly.

So as of today I am leaving Earth 2 with Issue #16. It’s been a blast. Man, it’s a lovely day. Think I’ll take Rex to the beach.
Yes, this also means I’m no longer working at DC Comics. Best wishes and regards to Dan, Geoff and everyone.

Personally, I was thoroughly enjoying Earth 2 and am sad to see him go, but this at least feels a bit more amicable than most of the recent DC partings. Issue #16 will be in stores in October.

    Has DC stated whether they will continue with Earth-2 or find a replacement? It struck me as very much Robinson’s book, and it’s hard to think of someone who’d be a good replacement if they do plan to keep it going.

    DC has been driving away their talent lately…Diggle, Cornell, and Robinson all in a pretty short time frame…

    It’s to the point where I can’t name a DC writer that I’d trust to pick up the series and do well with it.
