Matt Kindt Off Suicide Squad Already

SSQUAD_Cv29CBR asked the Mind MGMT creator.

Are you sticking on "Suicide Squad" past "Forever Evil," or is that only for the course of that story?

It's just for "Forever Evil" and then I'm done. It's one of the things I'm scaling back on, because I don't have time. It's driving me crazy to do so much. I knew I could do a finite amount of time on that and do it well, but I can't sustain it for that long and make it good, still — "for sure" good. There's a chance it could be good. I told my editor, "At a certain point, it's just going to be like flipping a coin — it could turn out alright or not, depending on how I'm feeling that day. It's better to take a little bit of time off and recharge my batteries.

We remember that previous writer Ales Kot only got four issues before he was unceremoniously switched for Kindt. Who at the time tweeted, after DiDio said this was the plan all along,

So who is next on Suicide Squad? And will they get more than four issues this time? Or is the nature of the book, with characters getting limited runs, being echoed i th creative teams?
