Batman and the Outsiders #17 has been cancelled with its final issue. And, as is often the case, DC Comics has decided that they don't want to throw good money after bad, and the much-in-demand Dexter Soy is being pulled off the final issue, for something else. And it will now be drawn by Marcio Takara instead. Well, Marcio, best known for Incorruptible and The Incredibles was drawing House Of Whispers for DC Comics – and that was cancelled. Might he gain the reputation for drawing the final issue for a few comic books right now? If so, it might keep him in a job for quite some time at DC right now.
Here is how the solicitation used to look:

Series finale! The war with Ra's al Ghul reaches its end, and none of the Outsiders will ever be the same. And none of them might ever be a team again! Did Batman choose the wrong allies to assemble to fight Ra's? Or did those allies make a mistake in believing in Batman? The critically acclaimed series comes to its end!
