I was as surprised and let down as the next person when I found out fave scribe Bill Willingham stepped down from writing Salvation Run. After reading his explanation, I’m ready to forgive.
“The short version is that I got sick, and on doctor’s orders I needed to dial back my workload – specifically the most stress-inducing part of my workload – and picked the most likely candidate to give up,” Bill Willingham told CBR News. “There’s a longer version with more nuance, many more details, some interesting subplots, a few surprise dramatic twists and even a musical interlude or two, but in the interest of discretion and decorum we’ll stick with the short version.”
On the plus side, Clockwork Storybook co-founder Matthew Sturges will finish the series.
