Chris Roberson And DC Part Ways

OK guys, I got behind on this story (I apologize) but it keeps developing. Bleeding Cool broke the story about Chris Roberson, writer of iZOMBIE (which has been cancelled), and was to have a story arc in FAIREST, announced on Twitter that he would no longer write for DC after he finished his commitments. When responding to feedback, Roberson referred to an article on Comics Alliance regarding the BEFORE WATCHMEN books and the upcoming AVENGERS movie and how the big two companies have handled creators.

Well, DC obviously heard it as well and responded, by releasing Roberson of his commitment on FAIREST.  You can read it for yourself from his Twitter page:



Also included on the image is a response from Bill Willingham, the creator of FABLES. This is not a surprising move, but unfortunate. Thoughts?
