WW Earth One's embarrassing cameo by guess who

Since we've been on the topic of Eddie Berganza this week, I just found a picture from Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman: Earth One, featuring a cameo illustration that's bound to add more embarrassment and cheapen the story only more:
His illustrated counterpart is at the upper right corner, replete with glasses and a beard around the sides. Good grief. Depending on how one looks at this subject, that'll only make this book a goldmine of irony, because he's the editor of it.

On a related note, Paste magazine's now covering the story of Berganza's treachery. But there's still no telling if this'll lead to his dismissal, and he's not the only one in publishing/editing who needs to be shown the door. DiDio is another, and IMO, Diane Nelson should be too. Better yet, DC as a comics publisher would do far better under a different ownership with more rationale.

Update: Newsarama's finally beginning to talk about the case.

Update 2: The Outhousers says that CBR, already a pretty dreadful news site, wouldn't run an editorial about this topic, even though it wasn't particularly controversial, and may have even erased a number of forum posts. It's clear they're pretty jelly spined in their own way, and that's exactly what makes them such an unreliable major site.

Been a while since I saw a creator cameo in comics, still as self-indulgent and ego-boosting as all the previous examples though.
