Paul Cornell, who’ll be leaving Demon Knights with December’s #15, introduces the title’s new writer on his personal blog, noting that “I know that comics fans sometimes see ‘I’m giving up the title when you leave’ as a compliment, but I really want to see this world that myself, Matt Idelson, Chris Conroy and Dio built continue, especially since the wonderful Bernard Chang is staying on as artist.” The new writer will be Surrogates creator and X-O Manowar revivalist Robert Venditti, who teases what’s to come:
So what exactly will I be doing with this ragtag band of misfits we all know and love? Well, without getting too deep into spoilers, I can say that the end of issue fifteen will offer an opportunity to spin things in a new direction, while still remaining true to the mythology that Paul has laid down. Issue sixteen will begin decades removed from the previous arc, and the team will find themselves thrown together after having spent many years apart. Most of them will not be happy about this. And rest assured, all the core cast members will be present— though in ways I hope will surprise you—and for some the years will have been kinder than others.
Venditti’s run begins in January.
