Booth Leaves Nightwing After #21
So, Brett Booth has been teasing being brought into to do some fill in on another title at DC for the past month or so, and today it was announced that he'd be drawing Justice League of America #4 and #5, which is cool. But time spent on JLA means time spent away from Nightwing, as Booth confirmed #21 would be his last.
This sucks. Not hating on Booth or anything, because the couple of JLA issues is a big gig, but man he worked so well on Nightwing, and after Eddy Barrows unable to put together more than two full issues in a row (outside of the first two) it was nice to know a steady artist who fit the title so well would be handling it. It seems like every time Nightwing gets a little momentum, something happens, plans change, etc. Blah. Oh well. Hopefully whoever they get to replace Booth is good, but I have a feeling who we'll get... and I hope I'm not right.
