DC Comics announced that Robert Venditti, currently writing X-O Manowar for Valiant Comics, is the new writer on Demon Knights.
Venditti will be taking over Demon Knights with Bernard Chang starting with January's issue #16.
With DEMON KNIGHTS, writer Paul Cornell built a rich world and populated it with unique characters that any writer would want to get their hands on. Add to that a chance for me to work with artist Bernard Chang, and it was really a no-brainer. When editor Chris Conroy reached out to me, my first thought was, where do I sign?” Venditti told THE SOURCE.
“DEMON KNIGHTS is unlike any other series on the stands, and I’m going to do my best to continue that,” the writer continued. “For the next few issues, readers will find the team—if such a disparate band of misfits can be called a “team”—battling an enemy that reaches far back into the history of the DC Universe. And it’s going to be a battle from which everyone will emerge changed in profound ways.
