Ryan Ottley has announced he is leaving Image Comics’ Haunt and will be replaced by Greg Capullo who has been doing the layouts of the series.

“My main focus has always been ‘Invincible,’ so ‘Haunt’ was more of a side thing that turned into more work than I imagined,” said Ottley. “I’ll probably still do an occasional side project here and there, but to take on another ongoing is something I won’t do again. I did 14 comics in 2009, and I need to keep it at around 10 to 12 a year in order to keep my sanity and keep the books looking as fresh as possible. Not that I think the issues I did look horribly bad or anything, because I did do my best on them, but being able to spend more time on each page and get proper rest would be nice.”

Ottley’s final issue of the book will be issue #5 that arrives in February.

    Kinda sad to hear cause I really love Ottley’s art but if it makes it so he doesn’t leave Invincible and it keep’s looking good then I am fine w/ it. Haunt is a good book and hopefully even w/ the change i think it will continue to be good.

    I love me some Ottley art work, but if he had to leave one book, I’m glad it was Haunt. I just can’t see Invincible without him!
