Authors J.H. Williams and W. Haden Blackman will leave the title after the upcoming 26th issue. This is another of those DC editing decisions that has been causing the creators to leave the company lately, but this one has more going on. Williams and Blackman stated via Willaims blog.
“In recent months, DC has asked us to alter or completely discard many long-standing storylines in ways that we feel compromise the character and the series. We were told to ditch plans for Killer Croc’s origins; forced to drastically alter the original ending of our current arc, which would have defined Batwoman’s heroic future in bold new ways; and, most crushingly, prohibited from ever showing Kate and Maggie actually getting married. All of these editorial decisions came at the last minute, and always after a year or more of planning and plotting on our end.”
Quite the number of changes that. And a rather controversial one to boot. I can understand why they chose to leave, heck I’m surprised they stuck with it as long as they did. What do you all have to say? You can also find the full post detailing the leave after the jump.
