His full statement:
"It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that I’ll be leaving the DC monthly Batwing, I’ve had a terrific time on the title and have loved crafting this adventure with some phenomenal people. Artists Ben Oliver, Marcus To, and Brain Reber have made these stories come to life. I will miss telling the tales of David Zavimbe, the Batman of Africa in many ways, but I’m proud of the work we’ve done. 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."
Well, that sucks (and terribly timed, as people will probably associate it to similar reasons for another rather public crapstorm stew going) but what are we gonna do? Who takes over now? In my opinion, it really needs to be a young/new writer. Batwing doesn't really come with a whole lot of strings attached, which could allow some new blood to really take risks and potentially thrive.
