Art Change on Batman Eternal #10
Posted this on twitter earlier, but figured I might as well make a post about it here. Guillem March apparently isn't drawing Batman Eternal #10 as solicited, bummer! In his place will be Riccardo Burchielli of DMZ fame. I was really hoping to get these three issues in from March, and thought we would as I spotted some WIP stuff from issue #8 posted in January. But, with the way the weekly schedules go, I assume they leave no room for error.
I always figured one of these weeklies was going to flinch in terms of artists, and given the way Eternal is solicited with some more notable artists doing multiple issues in a row, where Futures End is a different artist each week. I guess Eternal just was too good to be true in some respects.
But even thought March isn't drawing all three of the issues he's solicited for, I do hope to see him make a return to the title down the line, like Jason Fabok and hopefully Dustin Nguyen. Those three guys are some of my favorite Bat artists, so the more I can get from them, the better.
Also, one last note, as if March not drawing this issue was sad enough, Eternal #10 is John Layman's last issue in Gotham for quite some time. I'm sure he'll be listed as a contributing writer within the series for awhile, but this is indeed the last issue he's scripted.
