Haunt Get's New Creative Team in September

Joe Casey & Nathan fox of Dark Reign: Zodiac fame will be taking over from co-creator Robert Kirkman and signature artists Greg Capullo who will be leaving to team up with Scott Snyder on Batman #1. Looks like September is the official month of change for the industry. I'm looking forward to Casey's Vengeance mini for marvel with Nick Dragotta and as a reader of Haunt I look forward to see what direction he takes the title in.  Casey discusses his plans here.

Haunt is an underrated series. I enjoyed the first trade but I haven't bought the 2nd one yet.

wait wait wait -- so Kirkman is leaving Haunt or just Capullo? 
 
After some googling I found the answer to my question. I'm a little disappointed with how much this comic's creators have changed without it being initially called a "rotating door of blah". It could be really cool, I really do like the series.

This is the first truly impactful creative change though. Art changing from Ottley to Capullo wasn't a huge deal to me. A new writer is a pretty significant change though. I get it though with Kirkman being as busy as he's been these days. Glad they passed it on to somebody with some chops. I'm very interested to see where Casey takes this.

@Demonturtle:  
Word, I can't wait to see what he and Snyder whip up on Batman though.

Well, I'm glad for the change. I think the series is good but it hasn't had it's great issue yet , I think, and I hope this new team will bring us to that great point.

It'd be a real shame if this book started to suck.

Really? What about Issue 12?  
 
@InnerVenom123:  
I would cry :P

Nah, I wouldn't say that issue 12 was impressive. There are panels and things like that that have really impressed me. But nothing that has really stood out to impress me that I probably couldn't get from any other book.
