Red Hood writer Scott Lobdell is leaving the comic book after almost ten years on the book.
Lobdell took over writing the book in 2011 and no one in DC has been writing a specific book for longer.
The news came when Lobdell himself made the announcement on his personal Instagram account and revealed that issue #50, set to arrive in October will be his last.
“I’m stepping away from only remaining freelance work on Red Hood and the Outlaes effective immediately.
“Issue #50 out in October will be my final issue. While I’m profoundly grateful for the last ten years on a book telling the story of a tragically flawed man in search of redemption, I depart certain that my vacancy will be filled by a dynamic new voice.”
Speculation is sure to run wild over who will take over the role, but we’re yet to hear any news on a replacement.
