Judd Winick has announced his departure from Batwing.
The writer will leave DC Comics’ Batman spinoff at an unconfirmed date following the end of his run on Catwoman.
“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that I’ll be leaving the DC monthly Batwing,” Winick told Newsarama. “I’ve had a terrific time on the title and have loved crafting this adventure with some phenomenal people.
“Artists Ben Oliver, Marcus To and Brain Reber have made these stories come to life. I will miss telling the tales of David Zavimbe, the Batman of Africa in many ways, but I’m proud of the work we’ve done.
“My departure is simply a time issue. I’m pursing a few other projects that make it impossible for me continue doing a monthly book.”
Winick is still featured as writer in the most recent solicitation for November’s Batwing #14. He completed his run on Catwoman with this month’s issue #12 and has written next month’s Green Arrow #0.
Winick revealed last month that he is writing and illustrating an all-ages graphic novel.
