Ch-Ch-Changes: King And Seeley Leave Grayson Earlier Than Planned

GRAY_Cv17So there have been some changes at DC Comics regarding the Robin books. And planned creative changes happening in April seem to have been moved forward for both Grayson and Robin: Son of Batman.

The demands of upcoming biweekly relaunches?

Grayson #17, originally drawn by Mikel Janin, now has art by Carmine di Giandomenico.

Grayson #18, originally solicited as written by Tom King, Tim Seeley and drawn by Mikel Janin, is suddenly written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, with art by Roge Antonio. This is what it was…

At last, the spy stands alone. Now an agent of multiple masters, Grayson must go rogue from them all, find the truth within the web of lies, and take down Spyral once and for all.

Remember this was the issue meant to address the end of Robin War...

Grayson #19, originally written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and drawn by Carmine di Giandomenico, will now have art by Roge Antonio instead.

It's not the only Batbook undergoing solicitation turmoil…

Last week's Robin, Son Of Batman #8 was a fill-in issue. Instead of being by Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray, it was by Ray Fawkes, with art by Ramon Bachs with the new solicitation.

In this issue, Damian, Maya and Goliath must return a mystical spear to an ancient Chinese temple and are confronted by their darkest fears.

What was meant to be #8 switched to #9, by Patrick Gleason and Mick Gray.

Back in Gotham City, Damian's world has been turned upside down. Nothing is as it should be. But when an old friend appears, new adventures begin to unfold.

While what was #9 by Gleason and Gray seems to have disappeared for now.

Damian and Goliath are reunited! Criminals, thugs, villains—and everyone else—better beware! The fur is going to fly in Gotham City as Damian tries to keep the collateral damage from Goliath's return to a minimum!

And Robin, Son Of Batman #10 which was by Gleason and Gray will be now written by Ray Fawkes, with art and cover by Ramon Bachs. Changing from

The Son of Batman faces the Son of Lu'un Darga! Damian, Maya, Goliath and their new friends seek out Talia al Ghul in order to fight back against the rising threat of the Lu'un Darga family, only to come face to face with the rival clan's champion, young Den Darga! Has Damian finally met his match?


In this issue, when Damian realizes there are artifacts missing from his Year of Blood collection, he must set out to uncover who is behind the theft.

Busy busy DC Comics….
