It had been known for some time that Paul Cornell would be leaving one of the books he started for DC’s New 52, “Demon Knights,” with issue #15. However, as Cornell exits, there must be a new writer — and today DC revealed just that.
This makes me sad, this is one of my favorite New52 books and I LOVE Paul’s writing.
To be honest, Paul was the BEST part of Demon Knights. He MADE that book. Neves’ art is a very, very close second…but, to me, it’s only partially about the characters and the story. Yes, I love all of those aspects, but really…it’s going to be hard to accept this title with another writer. The new writer does seem enthusiastic, though. So we’ll see.
