The Boy Wonder Switches Teams!

...creative teams, that is, so all you wannabe Werthams just simmer down now.

It's not happening until December, but it's still news that should get people interested.

Beginning in December, Eisner-Award nominated writer Bill Willingham, best-known for the hit VERTIGO series FABLES and the Comico series Elementals, will take over as writer on ROBIN.

Willingham is joined by acclaimed penciller Rick Mays (ZATANNA: EVERYDAY MAGIC). The team will begin its run on the series with issue #121.

"I'm delighted to be writing one of the few comic book icons that nearly every man woman and child on Earth can name," says Willingham.

"But I'm a bit surprised that DC let me write Robin, considering I recently killed the only robin character in FABLES. I'll try to keep this one alive for an issue or two."

"Bill brings a new level of excitement and energy to ROBIN," says Dan DiDio, DC's VP - Editorial. "We're confident he will set the tone for this book for years to come."

For an early look at Willingham's take on the world of Batman, pick up BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #168. This stand-alone story features art by Tom Fowler and a painted cover by Phil Hale, and is scheduled to be in stores on June 11.
