Well, the released-today Batman solicitations for October show that those “We’ll keep those books on schedule even if it means switching up creative teams” thing has turned out to be 100% true – and claimed an unsurprising first victim:
BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #2
Written by DAVID FINCH and PAUL JENKINS
Art by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND with JAY FABOK
Cover by DAVID FINCH and RICHARD FRIEND
On the plus side, let’s be honest: Paul Jenkins and Jay Fabok both have the same Top Cow charm of David Finch, so it’s possible that the change in creators won’t slow up the content in any way whatsoever. But still: I wonder whether Finch will disappear from the book for a bit to build up a run of completed issues?
