Winnick says goodbye and explains why he's leaving
Judd Winick has confirmed that he is leaving the DC title Batwing, a noteworthy part of the DC reboot because it gave an African hero a solo title. The title also tied into the Batman event "Night of the Owls".
"It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that I’ll be leaving the DC monthly Batwing," Winick told Newsarama
in a prepared statement. "I’ve had a terrific time on the title and have loved crafting this adventure with some phenomenal people. Artists Ben Oliver, Marcus To, and Brian Reber have made these stories come to life. I will miss telling the tales of David Zavimbe, the Batman of Africa in many ways, but I’m proud of the work we’ve done.
"My departure is simply a time issue," he said. "I’m pursing a few other projects that make it impossible for me continue doing a monthly book."
Back in July Winnick said that he was writing and drawing an all-ages graphic novel.
No word yet on what his last issue would be, although DC has already solicited him as writer on the title through November's issue #14. Stay tuned for news on who will take over this title.
Winick launched both Batwing and Catwoman for DC's "New 52" reboot last September, however also left Catwoman earlier this year.

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
