Talking with Van Sciver, Etaeb said, “I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this shit, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this,” Bounding Into Comics reported.
Eltaeb noted that he had worked the DC booth at Comic Con in the past and helped tend to the elderly Jerry Robinson — the man who created Batman’s foe The Joker. “I remember bending down to his face and telling him, thank you for creating these characters, so people like me can waltz in and get a job. It’s not about gay or anything else,” Eltaeb exclaimed.
Eltaeb went on to slam DC over the latest Superman changes. “What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world. Fuck that it was Truth, Justice, and the American way,” he said. “My Grandpa almost died in World War II; we don’t have a right to destroy shit that people died for to give us. It’s a bunch of fucking nonsense.”
