October 15, 2005: Gail Simone and John Byrne Leave “Action Comics”

Artist John Byrne announced via his Byrne Robotics forum that his run on "Action Comics" is coming to an end. He and writer Gail Simone will be ending their stint with "Action Comics #835".

"The reason is no secret. Apparently it is now 'policy' to rotate the creative teams (including the editor) on Superman titles. Gail and I were hired (tho I was not told this when I agreed to do the book, or I would have declined) to 'fill the gap' between one team and the next."

When fans asked Byrne if he'd consider re-teaming with Gail Simone, he stated, "Any time, anywhere."

"The next team -- and I have no idea who they are -- could be folks you all want to see, or, at least, more people want to see than wanted to see Gail and me. Or they could be the worst team ever put on any title, but WIZARD will declare them 'HOT!' and the knuckle-draggers will lumber into their LCSs and buy multiples of multiples.

"So many variants! O, for the days when 1 sale ='ed 1 warm body!"
