Late on Friday, DC dropped the news about two new creative teams.
First up, Swamp Thing!
Taking over for the fan favorite team of Scott Snyder, Yanick Paquette, and Marco Rudy are writer Charles Soule and artist Kano. Soule has earned accolades for his fantasy and horror-tinged creator-owned series 27 published by Image Comics. Kano is an industry veteran who has worked extensively in comics for about 15 years. The first issue featuring the new creative team is Swamp Thing #19 and it hits in April.
Next, Red Hood and the Outlaws!
When original creative team Scott Lobdell and Kenneth Rocafort moved over to handle Superman, it was only a matter of time before a new team would be announced for Red Hood and the Outlaws. Beginning in April with Red Hood and the Outlaws #19, the new creative team of writer James Tynion IV and artist Mico Suayan will guide the (sometimes controversial) adventures of Red Hood, Starfire, and Arsenal. Tynion IV is a protege of Scott Snyder and has been writing Talon and the back-ups in Batman. Suayan has spent most of his career at Marvel, most recently drawing two issues of Greg Rucka’s The Punisher.
