Yeah, why would they do this so close to Fandome? Does DC expect that the target audience for Fandome doesn't care for these kind of stuff?

Fandome is just actually just a trap so they can fire people on screen without having to email or zoom call them individually

keep in mind that this wasn’t specific to DC and was part of a broader corporate restructuring/bloodbath that started with three big exec firings on Friday. the larger corporation is gonna take precedence over a specific event like Fandome

I have heard from one of my DC friends, she is still employed. This blindsided everyone and they did it in a manner so that people couldn't pack up their belongings themselves so she's taking all her personal items home just in case.

Kinda worried about DC's future. I can't imagine floppies will be around much longer.

The death of DC Collectibles is lovely, the vault wax the coolest part of the office tour and i can't imagine that stuff will remain untouched.

Mark Waid is an editor and not just a writer. Chatter is he's going ot the DC offices for meetings very soon. New EiC?

At the very least he'll be writing, considering Harras was the reason he was staying away.

It was Didio.

He's been very vocally critical of Didio for years, maybe the new guys in charge want him just to give the finger to the old ways.

Having Waid as a senior editor or something would definitely help heal some of the scars made by the New 52. Be a hell of a battle to get Bendis off Superman so Waid can finally get a run. The guy deserves it though after all these years.

Waid’s Birthright runs circles around any Superman origin story since 1978.

Nobody would love it more than him. When he signed his foreword to All Star Superman with “who has read every Superman story, but not one better”, I could totally believe he has read every Superman story ever written.

If Waid is going back to DC, I’m sure it’s contingent on him getting a Superman run that doesn’t get messed with by editorial. And personally, I wouldn’t be mad if he convinces Morrison to take another turn at the Justice League with Waid as editor again.
