Attention DEMON KNIGHTS fans! Beginning next year, the epic medieval series will have a new writer: Robert Venditti (X-O MANOWAR; THE SURROGATES).
Kicking off with issue #16, Venditti’s storyline begins thirty years since the Demon Knights last rode together – and they’re less than happy to see each other. What has happened during this time? Who lives? Who’s dead? Who’s going to stop the massive vampire invasion that threatens all life? The Demon Knights had better find some answers fast!
“With DEMON KNIGHTS, writer Paul Cornell built a rich world and populated it with unique characters that any writer would want to get their hands on. Add to that a chance for me to work with artist Bernard Chang, and it was really a no-brainer. When editor Chris Conroy reached out to me, my first thought was, where do I sign?” Venditti told THE SOURCE.
“DEMON KNIGHTS is unlike any other series on the stands, and I’m going to do my best to continue that,” the writer continued. “For the next few issues, readers will find the team—if such a disparate band of misfits can be called a “team”—battling an enemy that reaches far back into the history of the DC Universe. And it’s going to be a battle from which everyone will emerge changed in profound ways.”
DEMON KNIGHTS #16 hits stores on January 16, 2013.

@mercy_: Just read the final trade and I have to say Venditti's run was borderline bad.

@jake_fury: I have to admit that I didn't read past Cornell's run yet :S
