Dan Didio & Philip Tan take over on Outsiders

Does anyone care, is anyone still buying this book?
I like Philip Tan's art. That's all I can really say about this news right now. The only thing of Didio's I think i've read is his Metal Men story in Wedneday Comics which was okay.

Here is what Dan D had to say:

“This is an exciting time for me both personally and professionally. I have been a fan of The Outsiders since their inception and with Pete Tomasi moving on to some very exciting projects in 2010, I have been afforded the opportunity to work with some of my favorite characters. Most importantly, this also gives me the chance to work with the immensely talented Philip Tan, and together I hope we can meet and exceed all expectations for this series.”

Philip Tan says?

“I have orders from Dan to hunt down and skewer anyone who buys comics and doesn’t pick this up in January.

Seriously though, I can’t be more excited! Batman and the Outsiders is actually the first DC book I ever bought (and got stolen)! It will be a challenge to pick it up after Peter and Fernando’s run and continue to entertain, but Dan and I are extremely confident that we will be able to create some very exciting visual stories! There are tons of ideas that we want to play with! It is not only a huge honor for me to work on Dan’s first monthly book, but I’m also insanely giddy about being able to be creatively involved on a whole new level with this project, a level that I have never experienced!”

Anyone excited, sad.... bothered?

  2. Huh, you'd think Didio would be busy with his other duties. I actually started picking up this series with the last two issues, and only because I'm a fan of Peter Tomasi's work. I'll probably give the first few issues of Didio/Tan's run a shot, but this one may end up on the chopping block.

  3. Well thats at least 2 people buying the first issue!

    Robert do we know wholl me back from the dead in the blackest night tie-in issues?

    I make you right x-man, where will he have the time to write this book with his main job, thats got to take up a serious amount of time. If he doesnt want that job anymore Ill do it!

  5. Ha, you aren't the only one who'd love Dan's Excec. Editor job I'd bet!

  6. 'Judging by the covers, it seems that Terra will be terrorizing Geo-Force and the rest of the Outsiders.'

    Robert you may have just sold me on those issues. Thats a relationship ive wanted explored more since Brad Meltzer DC Universe one shot
