Creative changes abound at DC Comics!

This morning saw the DC Comics blog The Source announce that as of June's issue #10 on Batman: The Dark Knight, Gregg Hurwitz will be taking over the writing chores.

Hurwitz is the current writer on Penguin: Pain and Prejudice (right) as well as an acclaimed novelist. Current series artist David Finch will remain on the book.

“Finch and I are very fired up to take the Batman into dark and dangerous new terrain, presenting a story that’ll be epic and sweeping and juuust a little bit twisted," Hurwitz told The Source. "We’re gonna see a cornerstone villain from a whole new angle, too. I’ve always been fascinated by Jonathan Crane—not just what makes him tick, but what could have happened in his past to make him obsessed with fear at the expense of all else. And perhaps that particular obsession isn’t so different from the demons that drive the Dark Knight."

DC Comics recently announced a second creative change for Stormwatch as well. As a reader, to these changes cause the alarm bells to sound or tempt you to give them a try?
