UPDATED: DC Shakeup: Gail Simone Off ‘Firestorm,’ Tom DeFalco on ‘Legion Lost’, Cornell Off ‘Stormwatch’
By Andy Khouri
DC Comics confirmed this week some personnel changes for two of its New 52 superhero titles. Specifically, Gail Simone will no longer be Ethan Van Sciver’s co-writer of The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men following February’s issue #6. She will be replaced on the title by Joe Harris of Oni’s Ghost Projekt (in development as a series for SyFy), who will co-write the title with Van Sciver.
Legion Lost will say goodbye to series writer Fabian Nicieza with issue #6, also on sale in February. Nicieza will be replaced by Tom DeFalco, who of course was once the editor and chief of Marvel Comics. Pete Woods will continue to draw the title.
DC confirmed via a post to The Source that Batman: The Dark Knight and DC Universe Presents Deadman writer Paul Jenkins will pen a two-issue story for Stormwatch in issues #7-#9. Regular Stormwatch writer Paul Cornell tweeted that he will indeed leave the title, with February’s issue #6 being his last. Cornell will remain on Demon Knights and his Vertigo series Saucer Country. No word yet on who will follow Jenkins after his short run.
