Judd Winick is Leaving Batwing


Let's not gett too ahead of ourselves given the timing of this departure, in relation to another departure that has turn into an already infamous, unprofessional, and classless shitstorm. Winick told Newsarama, in part of a larger statement:
"My departure is simply a time issue, I’m pursing a few other projects that make it impossible for me continue doing a monthly book."
So there you have it. Winick didn't say which issue would be his last (I'm thinking perhaps 16 given other rumors) but it could come sooner. It's unfortunate to lose Winick on this title. This was one of those books where you didn't really know anything going into it, but from issue #1 I could tell it was something special. Winick really did a great job with the title.

Now, who takes it over? To be honest, I can't see the title lasting too much longer. If it makes it past the fourth wave cancellations, I can't see it making it past the next round, quite honestly. That being said, I feel like they should give the title to a relatively new/young writer. Batwing is a character who doesn't come with a whole lot of strings attached, and could allow a newer or young writer to thrive by taking risks, but having that safety net of being on the outskirts of the Bat family. But, as always... we'll have to wait and see.
