Greg Rucka done with Batwoman and DC?

Comics Alliance has dropped a bombshell from WonderCon — that Greg Rucka, the driving force behind the new Batwoman, is done both with Kathy Kane and DC Comics for the foreseeable future.

CA’s Laura Hudson, who moderated the Greg Rucka Spotlight panel in which he released this news, also got some bad news about whether or not there would be an upcoming Rucka/J.H. Williams III Batwoman series, to further flesh out the character. “I don’t know if I’ll ever get to do it,” he said. Rucka will instead focus on working on his Queen & Country series, as well as a few as-yet-undetermined projects.

For those who have been living under a rock, Rucka’s Detective Comics — particularly his rendition of this new Batwoman — has been getting rave reviews, not to mention winning a GLAAD Media Award. Best of luck on your new endeavors, Greg!

UPDATE: Rama correspondent Albert Ching has gotten a small WonderCon update on the Mothership about the future of Batwoman, over at the DC Universe Editorial panel:

[DC Senior Story Editor Ian] Sattler: “We have plans for Batwoman.”
[DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff] Johns: “We want Greg (Rucka) to write it, but he’s focusing on his career right now.”
Sattler: “There’s no shelving.”

What do you think this means?

I’m hoping for more Queen and Country at the least!

    It means DC Entertainment chickened out and drove Rucka out with their constant hesitation regarding Batwoman.

    Corporate homophobia. Nothing that shocking.

    I think you’ve hit the nail on the head there!
