Johns & Daniel Exit Titans

From the desk of Geoff Johns: "It had to happen sometime, it’s just happening a little sooner than we planned. The “Titans East” storyline beginning in today’s TEEN TITANS #43 will be our last."

" So whenever you leave a book there are two questions: 1) Why are you leaving? And 2) Who’s taking over? It’s never easy leaving a book, but after nearly 4 years on TEEN TITANS, I felt it was time to let someone else take the teens on. Some of my friends have asked, “Why not stay on until Teen Titans #50?! You’re so close!” But it’s like when I left THE FLASH after “Rogue War” - even though I found out later there were only a few issues of the series left because of what they wanted to do, I felt it was the right time to go. That doesn’t mean I’ll never write TEEN TITANS or THE FLASH again if I have the opportunity. I hope I do."

[..] " So now…who’s taking over? That would be current Robin scribe Adam Beechen beginning with TEEN TITANS #47. "

"Some people have already seen his name solicited on upcoming issues of “Titans East” – that’s because Adam’s come on early to co-write “Titans East” with me to get a sense of the team and to set the stage for his run as I close out mine. There are going to be some shake-ups and, more importantly, you will see the beginnings of a second Titans team forming…though not necessarily what you’re expecting. Adam’s especially nailed the characters of Kid Devil and Miss Martian and he’s delved head first into the vast Titans history to soak it all up."

Geoff, it's been a fun ride!

    This is inexcusable! Outrageous! Unprofessional! And most of all, uncalled for!

    Although I am interested in this new Titans team...I hope that the "Supergirl" mentioned isn't Kara Zor-El.

    I'm not really sure how I feel about it.
    I still remember the day that I was mad by this new volume of Titans, of how lame Lilith and Donna's deaths were handled. And then I ended up enjoying the series.
    Not sure about Beecher, heard some positive things from his work in JLU, but also heard negative things from his work in OYL Robin.

    God bless! Don't hate me, but I've always despised Johns' direction of DC Comics. Why the hell are they so impatient over Bart's development, that they have to speed-age him by four years?

    Johns didn't "direct" DC comics, and Bart's speed aging was not in any way his fault.
