    The DC comics got a new writer but did you also notice.....

    ....that they got a new editor?


    I dont know if this has been brought up on these forums so please excuse me if it has. This might be nothing but it's something I've noticed and figured I'd post something about it. We all know that James Robinson wrote issue one of the comic then mysteriously left at issue two. Keith Giffen took over and finished the series. I noticed that in addition to Robinson leaving there was also an editor change. Original series editor was Ben Abernathy but he was replaced at issue 3 (I think, I dont have them handy at the moment.) Why did Abernathy leave? Did it have anything to do with the overall story?


    I wondered about this but didnt wonder too much until I saw something. Issue 1 of Bleeding Cool Magazine I saw this:

    "So welcome to this issues blind items of industry gossip. Which editor saw himself dropped by his publisher after his work with a big name writer saw said talent decide to leave the comic after just one issue? Sadly, he wasnt a master of that universe..."


    Ummmm...What?

    Nothing is mentioned by name so I guess I could be completely wrong on this but doesnt it sound like.....well, you guys know what it sounds like. This is a possible explaination as to why Robinson quit, no? Am I reading too much into this? Are you guys aware of this? Please tell me if you think I'm full of bolony. The quote says it's just gossip so maybe that's all it is but I wonder. What do you guys think?

    Nah it seems correct. I know someone the comics world that asked Ben at a convention behind the scenes what happened with masters. ben basically walked away from the conversation hands in the air.

    I hope the MOTU run with this new series is more stable than that.

    Ben left DC, that's why. He moved to a different company / different job.
