Ming Doyle And James Tynion Leave DC's Dark Universe Before It's Solicited

It wouldn't be a DC relaunch, mini or otherwise, if someone didn't walk off a comic after it was announced but before the first issue was out.

And with the upcoming title Dark Universe, we have two of them, writer James Tynion IV tweeting on behalf of himself and writer/artist Ming Doyle,

Hey guys, just wanted to break some bad news this afternoon. Unfortunately, Ming Doyle and I had to step away from Dark Universe because of a few more pressing matters. We ended up folding a lot of our ideas into our Hellblazer run which we are still very excited about and committed to. We look forward to seeing what DC does with the rest of the Dark line. And for fans to see what else the two of us have in store for 2015 and beyond!

Maybe they can get Guillermo Del Toro? He's not busy or anything…
