While at New York Comic Con Scott Snyder revealed on a panel that in 2016 his partner in Greg Capullo would be taking a break from Batman and their monthly DC book. Capullo, according to Snyder, needs to free up some time to work on his own project with Mark Millar.
Snyder goes on to say:
“Greg is going to take a break after Batman #51,” It’s going to be very short. He and I have known this for some time. He’s going to do a short project with Mark Millar. I’m going to stay on Batman. When you work with someone for a long time, the best thing about comics is the collaborative nature of it.”
Historically, Snyder and Capullo have been a dynamic duo working together. Their work can be tracked back to September 2011 when they worked on the New 52 series.
