Last week Oni Press teased the return of Stumptown as an ongoing series, but co-creator Matthew Southworth has revealed he won’t be joining Greg Rucka on the title.
“Thx for all the Stumptown love re: the new series!” the artist wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “One note, tho — @ruckawriter is working w/ diff artist, not me, on this. I’m excited, too!”
Oni hasn’t announced the name of the new artist, or any other information about the series; however, more details are expected by Emerald City Comicon in late March.
Launching in November 2009 as a four-issue miniseries, Stumptown centers on Dex Parios, a private investigator in Portland, Oregon, with a gambling problem. A second miniseries, “The Case of the Baby in the Velvet Case,” debuted in September 2012.
