"iZombie will be the last time I’ll ever write for DC... I decided quite some time ago, but waited until after the cancellation
of my book was announced to discuss it. The short version is, I don’t agree with the way they treat other creators and their general business practices." writer Chris Roberson ends his relationship with DC Comics
, pointing at a post
by David Brothers as a summation of his ethical concerns. Roberson's work at DC has included turning around Superman after J. Michael Straczynski left mid-story
, iZombie and a spin-offs from Vertigo's Fables featuring Cinderella as a super spy
. He is currently working on the creator owned Memorial
, published by IDW.
This week Image Comics celebrated 20 years of producing independent comics
with the Image Comics Expo
, taking a look back at the past
whilst announcing a raft of new titles
for the future, including some Grant Morrison projects
and the long awaited return of Kieron Gillen and James McKelvie's Phonogram
. One strange Image comic that embraces both the past and the future is Prophet
- which picks up at issue #21 of an forgotten Liefeld story and turns it into "future space Conan"
