Another creative team shake-up is on the way for a prominent DC ongoing series. Writer Van Jensen has announced via Twitter that he is concluding work on "The Flash," a book he has co-written for almost two years. Jensen has co-written the series with writer Robert Venditti since 2014's "Flash" #30. It's not yet known whether or not Venditti will remain with the title.
I'll be wrapping up work on THE FLASH over this week and next. It's been a real honor, spending time in Central City.— Van Jensen (@van_jensen) February 9, 2016
There will be much more news from DC about what they have in store. Don't worry. Many more great adventures ahead for Barry Allen and all.— Van Jensen (@van_jensen) February 9, 2016
As for me, I've spent most of the past 4 years focused on the DCU. It's time for me to focus on my own stories...— Van Jensen (@van_jensen) February 9, 2016
...I have so many exciting things on the way. Some you've heard about. Most you haven't. I'm blessed to do the job I always dreamed of doing— Van Jensen (@van_jensen) February 9, 2016
Jensen then mentioned his upcoming work, which includes a collaboration with Pete Woods for Dark Horse Comics called "The Cryptocracy" and an unannounced comic with artist Dusty Higgins for new digital publisher Stēla .
Jensen's departure arrives after similar announcements from other high-profile DC writers; writer Greg Pak's "Action Comics" run concludes with issue #50 and it's rumored the Scott Snyder will move from "Batman" to "Detective Comics." While DC has yet to reveal what "Rebirth" is all about, rumors circulated a week ago posit that many ongoing series will be relaunched after hitting issue #52. It's possible that Jensen's run will end with #52, as issue #51 is the furthest DC has solicited as of now and he is still the co-writer of the series.
