DC Shocker: John Layman Off Batman Eternal? (Rumor)

So says the latest gossip from Bleeding Cool...

Uncle Rich is reporting that Chew mogul John Layman is off Batman Eternal, despite Layman and various DC peeps talking about his involvement as recently as yesterday. Layman was set to move from Detective Comics to the weekly Batman Eternal (aong with Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Tim Seeley, and more) when Francis Manapul and Brian Buccalleto take over Detective. Johnston gives no other details, and Layman hasn't comment (we're reaching out to him now). Consider it a rumor for now.

That being said, we'll use the rest of this article to share some of Layman's recent tweets about diversity in comics, because we might as well use this space for something productive:








Our friends at Girls Gone Geek answered:





So while we try to get to the bottom of this, here's what you can do in the meantime. First, if you haven't read Chew before, go and pick up the first TPB or its associated issues at your local shop or digitally (the Kindle version is only $4). If you're already a fan, revisit some of what Layman is talking about by visiting Girls Gone Geek and reading their writeup of Chew #30. But only do that if you've read it, because it contains some massive spoilers (for a two year old comic).

We'll update you as soon as we (or Rich Johnston) learn more about Batman Eternal. If DC has wronged Layman in any way, you know what's gonna happen, right?
