Ben Percy exits Nightwing with Issue #50

In a surprising turn of events, Nightwing scribe Ben Percy revealed via his Twitter account that Nightwing #50 will be his final issue on the title. It’s no secret that I haven’t enjoyed Percy’s run on the book, but I’d be lying if I didn’t confess to being shocked to learn of the news. For weeks now, DC has hyped the upcoming arc that is supposed to spiral out of Tom King’s Batman where Dick suffers an injury that permanently changes his life. It’s unclear whether DC is simply initiating a creative change, or scrapping the entire idea altogether. There’s also no indication pertaining to what led to Percy’s departure from the book.
