According to the solicits at the time, the creative team of Tomasi and Gleason was supposed to take over the Batman & Robin title in November with issue #17. I went back and checked, and they were indeed heralded as the new “regular team” for the title. Interviews at the time indicated that Morrison himself had pointed to Tomasi as his successor, and fan reaction seemed to be mostly positive. Let’s be honest, Morrison is a tough act to follow, but at least by hand picking his follow-up, and with a creative team that was beloved for their previous work together, it probably eased a lot of people’s mind knowing he chose his successor.
