Grifter will be illustrated by Marat Mychaels following the departure of Rob Liefeld.

The illustrator worked on issue #11 of the DC Comics title and will shoulder drawing duties on it indefinitely from issue #13.

"So 100% official I'll be taking over pencilling duties on Grifter for DC Comics," Mychaels posted on Twitter.

Liefeld welcomed the news with a tweet of his own, claiming that he pushed for Mychaels to succeed him on the series.

He wrote: "Very happy to hear that some of the cable I laid out is staying put. Fought hard for Marat Mychaels on Grifter. Book just got much better."

Liefeld abruptly ended his run on Hawkman, Deathstroke and Grifter when he parted company with DC earlier this week, citing creative differences with editors as the reason for his exit.

The artist is expected to focus on creator-owned work for the remainder of 2012.
