If you recall, there has been what has been perceived as editorial interference in some of the DC line of comic books.

The latest was regarding Gail Simone and Batgirl, and when she was brought back onboard it came out that any other creators that went public would feel the wrath of DC ED and not get any work.

There's been other editorial issues such as the departure of Rob Liefeld, a number of creative changes, and even going all the way back to the start of the New 52 with Ron Marz.

Well, that all may be behind DC as currently they are holding a big creative summit.

Bleeding Cool reports that - with DC Comics president Diane Nelson at his side - Dan DiDio apologized.

With President Diane Nelson to his side, DiDio admitted that there had been problems in the editorial chain, apologised for the repeated back-and-forths on people's scripts and art, and committed to reducing such editorial inputs once an editorial direction has been agreed upon and approved.

And Diane Nelson said she'd ensure this happened.

Which left a number of frustrated people... rather happy actually.

As they say: a house divided...
