Dwayne McDuffie Fired from “JLA” for Revealing Too Much

“Justice League of America” writer Dwayne McDuffie is a former “Justice League of America” writer now, as announced by DC Executive Editor Dan Didio in a recent Newsarama interview. When someone on his message board asked why he had been removed from the book, Duffie said that he was fired for being a little too open with fans:

Nope, it was my own doing. I was fired when “Lying in the Gutters” ran a compilation of two years or so of my answers to fans’ questions on the DC Comics discussion boards. I’m told my removal had nothing to with either the quality of my work or the level of sales, rather with my revelation of behind-the-scenes creative discussions.

The “Lying in the Gutters” issue that McDuffie mentions actually introduces his quotes by saying that “it’s rare that a creator is so open and honest about the ins and outs of working on such a series. And it’s done without malice, accusation or blame, just an acceptance that this is the way things work.” Sounds like it’s about to become even rarer.
