Gotham just got that little bit more gloomy as writer Scott Snyder for the current Batman comic series would be stepping down.
Snyder revealed in an interview that he will step down after writing issue 51, which Snyder admits he has been delaying writing the last few pages of script.
Snyder began his run on Batman in September 2011, collaborating with artist Greg Capullo. The duo had a good stint in DC, being the longest-remaining active pair of the 52 new series launched that month, and now DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns’ writing stint on “Justice League” stands as the only remaining creator/series pairing from that era.
Speaking on the last issue he is writing Batman #51, Snyder reveals is his ‘lightest’ work on the series to date:
[Batman #51 is] really just a letter to the fans from us and a letter to Batman. It’s the lightest I’ve ever written. Not lightest as in happy, but light as in not as many panels per page. It’s really, really open. It’s a chance for Greg to draw the close before we take our break.
