As DC's "New 52" titles make way for this summer's Rebirth, four titles including three current series finales are getting changes to the creative teams. Batman #52, Action Comics #52, Gotham Academy #18 and Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #5 are all shifting creative teams before their planned May 2016 release.
DC has informed retailers that Batman #52 will now be illustrated by Riley Rossmo, as opposed to the originally solicited Rafael Albuquerque. James Tynion IV continues to be listed as the writer of this last issue of Scott Snyder's Batman title, and is scheduled for release May 11.
Action Comics #52 was originally solicited to be drawn by Fernando Pasarin, but DC has now changed up the book to be drawn by Scot Eaton and Dale Eaglesham. Written by Peter J. Tomasi as part of the "Final Days of Superman" crossover, the issue is scheduled for release May 11.
Midnighter's Steve Orlando has joined writers Brenden Fletcher, Faith Erin Hicks and Natasha Alterici on Gotham Academy #18, while Annie Wu has been removed from the list of artists involved in the May 11-scheduled issue.
Following the early departure of Ethan Van Sciver to work on DC Universe: Rebirth #1, Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #5 is now solicited with art by Ardian Syaf and Jonathan Glapion.
