Now Joshua Hale Fialkov Walks Off Green Lantern Books

joshI understand that Joshua Hale Fialkov has walked off both Green Lantern books he was due to begin writing, "Green Lantern Corps" and "Red Lanterns".

We first reported that Fialkov was taking over those two comics last month, and DC later confirmed the news. But before his first issues are published I understand that he has chosen to curtail his run.

Just as yesterday, we told you that Andy Diggle had walked off Action Comics and today that's been confirmed

Both incidents seem to involve repeated editorial changes to already-approved directions that have not been welcomed by the writers.

How many issues will ship with Josh's name on them is not yet known. But as we discovered today with Supergirl, sometimes the change isn't even reflected on the cover and the insides come as a complete surprise…

As ever, neither Josh nor DC Comics chose to reply to emails.
