I just remembered he wanted to do that Teen Titans spinoff with Raven. Maybe he lost a bit of enthusiasm for Red Hood with the artist change when deciding what to drop.
So I'm expecting that book for Fifth Wave. Tynion isn't the ideal replacement, but I can see from the editor's POV, he's that Bat-writer that's waiting in the wings for more books.
I'm really tired of Roy's complete lack of history. It's like they're waiting for it to be told in Green Arrow, but no one over in Green Arrow even knows what to do, so no one gives him any history.
I'm not a fan of Lobdell, or this book, as I don't think he is that good a writer but I think he should have been taken off of TT before this one. He at least seemed to have a direction he wanted to go with this title. Though honestly, I think Rocafort is the person that made people love this book and losing him was a far greater loss. Lobdell is pretty replaceable. Not like he did anything that another writer couldn't duplicate. Plus James Tynion IV is an okay writer and I like that someone with a younger voice is on a title with teen/young adults at least. If he writes Jason semi-well I doubt the book's numbers will change any. Since he is the main reason people follow the title.
Red Hood has lost a lot of steam and talon has been a lot of fun. I'm okay with this change.
At least tynion doesn't seem to be the 'retcon s*** for the hell of it' type.
Grandparents dead - please no jokes
make mine DC, thanks
I can be up for this. Maybe this is just the right book to give Tynion the right boost he needs to improve. So far he hasn't really worked on a book without Snyder's hands on it, so this could be a good chance from him to really show what kind of writer he is. I'll check this out in the future and hope for the best.
Between this,Batgirl and Nightwing its hard to decide which needed a creative change more. Still Red Hood and the Outlaws is the only book in the bat line that is still underwhelming every issue no need to even touch on how bad Starfire has been in this book.
Currrently Reading- Suicide Squad,Justice League,Animal Man,Batwoman,Batman:The Dark Knight,Batman,Batman and Robin,Detective Comics, Wonder Woman and Jonah Hex
She does? I thought they hadn't chaged that since in the Dotf tie-in she didn't remember what Joker was and she talked about Roy like she had only met him in the first issue.

I‛m having mixed thoughts on this, on one hand the book would benefit with a new writer giving it new life and avoiding possible stagnation (we don't wanna end like OŽNeill's Azrael after all) and Tinion has showed talent on the backups and on Talon. On the other hand this could put the book directly under Snyder's whims and that might be in detriment for the characters, Lobdell has made a superb work fleshing them out and I would like to them to continue that way.
In any case, if this's true hopefully also means a new artist on the book
Comics were happier before the Internet turned writing superhero stories into fruitless attempts to impress/entertain a small group of ppl who appear to hate comics and their creators.
