As Expected, Eric Esquivel Dropped by DC Comics From Nightwing

Bleeding Cool understands from sources that Eric Esquivel will not be scripting Nightwing #58 in March, ahead of him becoming sole writer when Scott Lobdell's arc is finished.

Bleeding Cool ran a leaked DC Comics solicitation last night, and we understand that listing will appear in next week's Diamond Previews catalogue for March 2019 comic books. However, when DC releases its solicitations digitally this week, that listing will be changed.

Because as a result of allegations made last week, and the cancellation of Esquivel's Border Town comic book in mid-run, Eric will no longer be writing the title. And as far as DC Comics will be concerned, he never was.

The Joker's Daughter is back! Or is she? While she wasn't shot in the head like Nightwing, Duela Dent might be facing an identity crisis even more traumatic than Ric Grayson's. Fortunately the new Nightwings are doing their best to protect BlUdhaven-learning as they go-allowing Ric to try to help steer Duela away from the life of a homicidal zealot of the crazy Clown Prince of Crime!
