Dan DiDio is one of the most passionate people I know when comes to this medium. He loves comics with every fiber. He was also an early champion of my work. He backed me on black mirror when others didn’t want it to happen, then on court of owls, American vampire… on and on.1/2— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) February 22, 2020
The DC that Dan Didio helped cultivate as EIC in the mid-00s when I was in HS and College made me a fan of DC for life.— James Tynion IV 🦇🦇🦇🦇 (@JamesTheFourth) February 22, 2020
The DC that he built as publisher in the 10s gave me my career in this industry.
I'll be eternally grateful on both counts, and wish him the best!
This sudden change leaves Jim Lee in charge of DC as the sole publisher.
