Yesterday, Teen Titans artist Jonboy Meyers announced that he was leaving the title due to “creative differences.” Today, The Beat caught up with series writer Ben Percy, who confirmed the departure. Percy said “I wish him the best.”
Meyers had produced art for the series’ “Rebirth” oneshot and issue #1 before leaving the title. He is currently solicited for issues 2 and 3 but will be replaced by a currently unannounced artist. Percy said he’s seen some new artwork and is very “excited” to work with the new artist. When asked about the future of the series, Percy said “Full steam ahead!”
No word about whether or not future issues will be delayed as a result of the change in creative team.
UPDATE: Batman News reports that Khoi Pham will be stepping in to take over penciling duties.
