Dan Jurgens Takes Over Nightwing from Scott Lobdell in April

In March, writer Eric Esquivel was set to co-write Nightwing with Scott Lobdell, with eventual plans for Esquivel to take over the title. That wasn’t to be due to obvious reasons. But it looks like DC has found a replacement, as a leaked-on-4chan solicit for April’s Nightwing #59 lists a new writer, Dan Jurgens, alongside current artist Chris Mooneyham¬†on Nightwing #59. Will Jurgens be taking over as a permanent replacement? And will he undo that stupid “Ric Grayson” name change?

You can read the full solicit below, which, sadly, is still calling him “Ric.” It does seem like “Ric” might be rethinking his recent attitude change, however.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
