Francis Manapul Leaves “Detective Comics”

Writer and artist Francis Manapul announced via Twitter Wednesday his departure from “Detective Comics,” which he co-wrote alongside Brian Buccellato and illustrated since June 2014.

“A couple months ago I made the hard decision to walk away from Detective Comics in order to pursue these new projects,” he tweeted, referencing an earlier tweet where he said he handed in the covers for one of his new projects. “I loved writing Bruce and Harvey’s adventures with my best friend [Brian Buccellato]. Much thanks goes out to DC for giving us the opportunity.”

Manapul went on to say that artist Fernando Blanco stepped in at the last minute and did a great job illustrating Manapul & Buccellato’s final arc and that the next arc of “Detective” will be written by “a dear friend” of his.

As to the future, Manapul said he has “some big projects over the next couple of years. I’ll be reunited with an old friend, a creator-owned book as well as an OGN.” He also said that while announcing one’s departure isn’t typical, he didn’t want fans to be blindsided when his name no longer appeared on “Detective.”
