Scott Snyder Leaving Batman

Goodbye.

BM_Cv51Batman writer Scott Snyder has announced that he’s leaving the title as of April’s #51.

The writer also revealed in an interview with ComicVine discussing what the readers can expect with March Batman’s #50:

Just that Greg [Capullo] and I have had a blast together on this run. It’s our second to last issue together. 51 is my last issue as well on Batman,” Snyder said. “For me, 50 is the quiet issue and 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. 50 we wanted to be the opposite. We wanted it to be the most explosive, jam-packed sort of blockbuster crazed issue we’ve ever done. I hope it delivers in that regard.

Artist Greg Capullo is also leaving to work on an unamed title with mark Millar, but confirmed to return with Snyder to work on an undisclosed DC project afterwards.
