Rob Liefeld Planning On Leaving The New 52?

Rob Liefeld Planning On Leaving The New 52?With the news ringing in the industry's ears that that Grant Morrison was planning to jump off Action Comics and Batman Inc next year, with plans for more creator owned comics work, and screenplays, Rob Liefeld, co-writer on Savage Hawkman, Grifter and writer/artist on Deathstroke for DC Comics tweeted;

"I will be close behind."

I've been told that DC execs believe that if Rob can't make the Hawkman or Grifter books work than they may be next for cancellation. However, they don't seem to be doing too bad either

UPDATE: Rob has now added

"Not anytime soon….but 2013 is a ways off "
