Scott Lobdell and Rob Liefeld are among the staff chosen for DC reboot

Looking at this Titans Tower Monitor post featuring news on some of the reboot plans for the Titans, who's in charge of writing on the Teen Titans relaunch? Scott Lobdell, the writer for X-Men at Marvel in the 1990s who had very little to recommend when he co-wrote the main 2 series along with Fabian Niecieza at the time.

And, for a new take on Hawk & Dove, who is the artist? Rob Liefeld, who's long descended into notoriety for his increasingly horrid artwork. It's funny to note that one of his first jobs for a major company actually was on a Hawk & Dove miniseries back in 1988, when he hadn't yet achieved the infamy he did several years later at Image. But now, after he's earned such a bad rep in the biz, it's clear DC doesn't care much about Hank Hall and Dawn Granger, and clearly considers them expendable. The same surely goes for the Titans, suggesting they don't consider the Titans series very important anymore, and Lobdell isn't exactly considered an important scribe any more than Liefeld is.

And that's all we need to know that this reboot isn't the big, serious occasion they want us to think it is.

Sounds like Harras has gotten out his old X-office Rolodex to me.

Wasn't Nicieza also slotted to write one of the reboot titles, or is my memory playing tricks on me?

I wouldn't mind seeing Silvestri return to artwork...

Speaking of whom, when was the last time Silvestri did any new art -- Grant Morrison's X-Men run, I think?

While Lobdell isn't the greatest writer, he's okay. Liefeld, yeah, run for the hills, I suppose.

However, it's becoming clear how DC doesn't care about the Titans. I'm sure the 2003 animated series' cancellation, the subsequent ending of Titans Go and the stalling of the Judas Contract animated movie are factors, as well.

Blast from the past. Or maybe more like a fart.
