Dan DiDio Makes First Public Statement On His DC Comics Exit

DC Comics Dan DiDio

Dan DiDio made his first public statement on his departure from DC Comics.

Last week, it was reported that Dan DiDio was no longer with DC Comics as co-publisher after serving in the role since 2010. While DC Comics has not made any comments on his exit, Dan DaDio made his first statement on the news on his official Facebook page.

In the Facebook post, Dan DiDio noted that he was overwhelmed and humbled by the support he’s received in the wake of his exit from DC Comics. The former DC Comics co-publisher included a video of a speech he gave almost five years ago to summarize his feelings, noting that he’s currently at a loss for words:

Overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support and it leaves me at a loss for words (first time for everything). So, instead, I’ll turn to what was said nearly five years ago on April 10, 2015 to best sum up how I feel. Love to you all

During Dan DiDio’s tenure at co-publisher, he was one of the key players in DC Comics’ 2011 relaunch of its titles under “The New 52” banner. While “The New 52” relaunch was initially a success, the eventual drop in sales resulted in DC Comics moving forward with another line-wide relaunch called “DC Universe Rebirth”. Additional initiatives overseen by Dan DiDio during his time as DC Comics’ co-publisher include titles and stories such as Infinite Crisis, Before Watchmen, and Doomsday Clock. News of Dan DiDio’s exit from comes ahead of a planned announcement regarding another relaunch of the DC Comics Universe that will restore elements from “The New 52” reboot.

"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business.
