I knew this was coming. 3 books is more than enough for a writer like Snyder and since Superman and Batman are my favourites I kind of prefer Snyder to finish Swamp Thing so he can focus on them lol.

@Billy Batson: How long is Diggle going to be on the title for? I'd have thought 18 issues would be a long enough run. That's how long Morrison's been with Action Comics if you count the 0 issue.

"never want to go above 3 books" isn't he co-writing Talon? wouldn't that put him at 4 books now?

I knew this was coming because of Superman. Glad he had stayed as long as he did though!

Sad but understandable obviously. Even awesome writing geniuses have their limits, and in all honesty I'd rather have Snyder kick consistent @$$ on 3 books than to do only a mediocre job on more. Besides, I'm ready for his Man of Steel already so I say full steam ahead, Snyder!

Well that's Swamp Thing dead in the water, yet another non-A-list character doesn't make the cut and The Dark corner of the DCnU shrinks again

any chance that the legenday china mieville will take over the run as he seems to be in the dc fold and has history and interest in the character

This is the second biggest mistake DC has made this year (firing Gail Simone is the first)! With this move, DC will ensure that Swamp Thing will be cancelled within a few issues. Snyder is the first writer since Alan Moore to understand this character and write it well. DC should have done everything in its power to ensure that Snyder would remain on this title. I believe Snyder could handle 4 titles easily but I think he wants and deserves a bump up in pay! Come on DC, ante up and keep this great writer on a title he was meant to write!!

Synder's Swamp Thing is one of the best damn books I've ever read. This is sad news.

I suppose it's better for something to end at it's peak than to die slowly.
