Van Jensen has announced he is stepping down as co-writer of DC's The Flash. Revealed in several tweets, Jensen is leaving DC and work-for-hire work completely to focus on "my own stories."
"I'll be wrapping up work on The Flash over this week and next. It's been a real honor, spending time in Central City," Jensen said. "There will be much more news from DC about what they have in store. Don't worry. Many more great adventures ahead for Barry Allen and all. As for me, I've spent most of the past 4 years focused on the DCU. It's time for me to focus on my own stories. I have so many exciting things on the way. Some you've heard about. Most you haven't. I'm blessed to do the job I always dreamed of doing."
Jensen's last solicited issue of The Flash with co-writer Robert Venditti is April 27's The Flash #51.
