Sciver Leaves DC Comics For Creator-Owned Project

Sciver - DC Comics News

First Geoff Johns left DC, now his Green Lantern: Rebirth and The Flash: Rebirth co-creator Ethan Van Sciver has decided to leave DC as well.  Sciver says he has nothing against DC and loved working with them, but he felt that if he wanted to continue speaking his mind and making videos for his YouTube channel, that it was time to move on.  Being an outspoken conservative has caused some strife for him in the industry since Trump took office and many people, out of ignorance, have wrongfully mislabeled Sciver as a white supremacist or Nazi.

When one twitter follower asked if he planned on ever returning to DC, Sciver replied:

Maybe one day, but I want to do CYBERFROG for the next couple of years at least. I want to own something I create. DC is great, was good to me, and I had a good time there, but it’s time to try to get rich. 🙂

After 14 years working for the publisher, Sciver has instead decided to revive his creator-owned series Cyberfrog.  He recently launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to get his title going and it quickly jumped up to $197,000. Sciver plans for Cyberfrog to be published as a four part, 48 page prestige format series that he will write and draw.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
