Black Lightning Creator Tony Isabella is not very happy with DC Comics. Batman and the Outsiders is a new comic book story and it is here that DC Comics have made changes to the Black Lightning character. Changes that co-creator Tony Isabella is clearly not very happy with.
Isabella took aim at Jefferson and Lynn Pierce’s lack of connection in the comic series with the following:
“F**K DC COMICS AND EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THEIR RANCID BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS BOOK,”. “ANYONE WHO UNDERSTANDS JEFFERSON PIERCE KNOWS LYNN IS HIS ONE TRUE LOVE.”
Given how upset he is, he decided in another social media update that he will be stepping back from social media for a while:
“I’m taking the couple days off from the Internet,” he announced in another Facebook update.
“I figure I’ll miss at least some of the clueless trolls who think the creator of an iconic character should just shut the fuck up when he and the character were disrespected by others.”
Communicating his feelings he took to social media with these statements:
“I think I’m done with comics and maybe with any kind of online presence,” he added in a comment. He followed that up with another post, writing, “UPDATE: I’m taking the weekend to think about what I want to do going forward. Right now, I’m considering throwing in the towel. There’s got to be better things I can do with my energy, passion and talent.”
Since the inception of Batman and the Outsiders in 2019, Isabella has expressed his discontent with how his character has been portrayed. Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden created Black Lightning in 1977 as DC Comic’s first major Black superhero. The character was introduced in his solo series, with Isabella writing the first 10 issues. He returned to the character in 2017 with the Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands limited series. The iconic character has gone on to lead a television series on The CW.
We hope that DC and Isabella and reconcile their differences and come together for the sake of the DC community and Black Lightning fans.
