Dan DiDio Makes An Appearance In The Finale Of Metal Men #12

Early this year, Dan DiDio was let go as Publisher of DC Comics. It was quite the thing, but also very much the shape of things to come. A precursor if you will to two waves of DC Comics senior redundancies through the year, alongside the pandemic shutdowns, distributor and printer changes and everything else coming. He was, however, allowed to keep writing his Metal Men comic book until its planned end with its twelfth issue. And then we all saw in Metal Men #7, that Dan DiDio had found a new job within the DC Universe itself.

And we had previously seen, in Harley Quinn, what his previous job was. Publisher of DC Comics within the DC Universe and coming up with 5Gnu.

Of course, Dan can only explore those new worlds and universes once his Non-Compete deal with DC Comics comes to an end. Usually about a year…
