New Nightwing Creative Team Announced


Somewhat unexpectedly, Nightwing got a new creative team announced for December, consisting of writer Sam Humphries and artist Bernard Chang (and if the book remains twice monthly, we'll be sure to see another artist join at some point).  Essentially, Humphries and Seeley switched books, as Seeley was announced to be taking over writing duties of Green Lanterns a month or two ago.

My thoughts are somewhat mixed, though optimistic. On one hand, I've yet to read anything from Humphries that has grabbed me... I didn't like his Uncanny X-Force and Green Lanterns didn't hold my attention, but it's a small sample size, and I have seen people enjoying Green Lanterns. I do like Bernard Chang's art, so that's a plus. All that being said, I'm real bummed Seeley is leaving the Bat books. I've been a fan of his since Hack/Slash, and remember seeing his first Legends of the Dark Knight digital story thinking "I hope this leads to more main-line Seeley Bat stuff" and sure enough, it did and there was a lot of it.

Though, never got that Seeley written Catwoman book I dreamed about...
