Pretty sure the whole concept betrays Moore's vision,
I think him being cosy with the Kennedy's was actually the bigger insult. As much as him killing Kennedy is implied to the point it's hard to think otherwise, it's still just implied.
COMICS: Geoff Johns To Exit AQUAMAN Along With Ivan Reis
Word broke a little while back that Ivan Reis will be leaving DC's Aquaman title that he has helped revitalized. Now it seems Geoff Johns will follow, and exit the title as well.
WaylonJones - 8/20/2012
According to Bleeding Cool Geoff Johns will follow Ivan Reis and leave Aquaman. Johns is currently juggling Justice League, Green Lantern, and Aquaman as well as his responsibilities as DC's Chief Creative Officer. Reis' last issue of Aquaman will be issue 16, however Bleeding Cool does not state if that will be Johns' last issue. Another rumor that has been floating around is that the two are not done working together, as Reis is said to be the artist taking over for Jim Lee on Justice League when he finishes his run.
The move is coming as DC looks to reshuffle their creators once again around January of next year. Part of the reshuffle will be the possible cancellation of more titles, although specific titles have not been revealed.

Andy Diggle To Write Action Comics After Grant Morrison?
Written on August 20, 2012 by Rich Johnston in Comics
I first heard the whiffs of this rumour a few weeks ago, that the new writer of Action Comics to replace Grant Morrison was another Brit with a 2000AD past, but seemingly from pub conversations recalling half-heard conversations and nothing I could actually stand up. Then Andy Diggle tweeted the following;
And suddenly I started hearing Andy’s name associated with the comic. Other names were thrown into the mix, some which sounded more likely than a writer who had shown disdain for writing superheroes in the past. But this weekend they all seemed to go away, leaving Andy Diggle the only game in town.So I just landed the biggest job of my career. #terrified
Diggle is best known for editing 2000AD, when he first wrote Lenny Zero and teamed up with Jock on art. They would later create The Losers together, and now Jock is on Detective Comics with John Layman. It would seem fitting for both the Action Comics and Detective Comics titles to both be created by members of such a team.
Diggle has been a little less high profile since his Daredevil run came to an end, but he’s had his Six Guns series for Marvel, his serialised Snapshot book with Jock in Judge Dredd Megazine and he’s writing Doctor Who for IDW. But this creative move, if true, would rapidly elevate him to the A-list.
A New York Comic Con announcement, as with the other DC January changes we’ve been talking about, seems likely.
DC Comics declined to reply to enquiries.
we all knew it was only a matter of time. God I absolutely hate hes not married to lois lane anymore. I couldve accepted a divorce before a marriage erasing.
Rob Liefeld leaves DC
Rob Liefeld walks off three DC titles ‘to preserve my sanity’
http://robot6.comicbookresources.com...rve-my-sanity/Rob Liefeld, who teased last month on the heels of Grant Morrison that he too would be leaving DC Comics soon, announced his abrupt departure this morning with a flurry of tweets criticizing his editors and the handling of the New 52. Although he’s listed in the solicitations for Deathstroke, Grifter and The Savage Hawkman through November, the writer/artist states that next month’s zero issues will be his last.
“Officially got off the DC52 treadmill this morning,” he wrote, adding, “I believe in what DC is doing, but had to preserve my sanity. I walked off all 3 books. Can’t wait to see any attempts to spin. I have every email.”
Liefeld was among the original creators when DC launched the New 52 a year ago, penciling and later also writing Hawk & Dove before moving in May to Deathstroke (writing and penciling), The Savage Hawkman and Grifter (plotting both).
“This is the 4th time I quit in the last 4 months. This time it will stick,” he wrote from a theater, where he was watching The Expendables 2. “Never thought the Image section of my book would be topped. This last year was a humdinger. The DC52 chapters will go top all of it. [...] Reasons are the same as everyone’s that you hear. I lasted a few months longer than I thought possible. Massive indecision, last minute and I mean LAST minute changes that alter everything. Editor pissing contests… No thxnjs. Last week my editor said ‘early on we had a lot of indie talent that weren’t used to re-writes and changes … made it hard.’ Uh, no, it’s you.”
Liefeld is only the latest creator to exit DC’s New 52 titles amid complaints of a relaunch plagued behind the scenes by disorganization and indecision. Notably, George Perez expressed his frustration over the repeated rewrites and lack of creative freedom that he contends led to his run on Superman being cut short.
“Don’t look for any tell all interview with me,” Liefeld added. “Just follow this feed. … the best stuff has not been shared — not even close!”
