Official Press Release

JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE WRITER JOE KELLY EXTENDS EXCLUSIVE AGREEMENT WITH DC

Joe Kelly, writer of the upcoming series JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE, has extended his exclusive agreement with DC Comics for one year.

"DC has been my home for over four years now, and I am thrilled to continue our relationship," says Kelly. "Everyone has proven very easy to work with. My editors are all top notch: supportive, creative, and enthusiastic about the work. The projects I have slated for 2004 are very diverse, including the provocative JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE and the revamp of a beloved character (more on that soon!). Creatively, I couldn't be happier with my workload, and I anticipate an even wider range of projects as the year progresses."

"I'm glad Joe's sticking around with DC," says Senior Group Editor Mike Carlin. "While we'll be shifting to multiple creators on the regular JLA title this year, don't be tricked into thinking Joe's done with the team...just wait till you see what he's cooked up for the new JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE series! He's got some other new things up his sleeve as well, so it'll be nice to know where to find Joe for another year - DC Comics!"

TEEN TITANS ARTIST MIKE MCKONE RENEWS EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT WITH DC

TEEN TITANS penciller Mike McKone has extended his exclusive agreement with DC Comics for one year.

"I couldn't be happier at renewing," says McKone. "Drawing TEEN TITANS is the best gig in comics, and I'm delighted that DC has invited me to stick around for another year. Working with Geoff Johns, Eddie Berganza and Tom Palmer Jr. has been the highlight of fifteen years of drawing these silly little pamphlets, and we've barely scratched the surface of what we'd like to do with this book."

"One of the things I attribute the success of TEEN TITANS to is Mike McKone's mighty pencils," says Senior Editor Eddie Berganza. "He makes the fantastic seem plausible. When Cyborg steps onto San Francisco's streets, you can feel the ground shake. When Deathstroke pummels Robin, you can feel the Boy Wonder's pain. I'm glad we've got Mike on our side, and I think we're going to get even better stuff from him in the months to come."
