Official Press Release
Acclaimed artist Michael Lark (GOTHAM CENTRAL, BATMAN: NINE LIVES) has signed a one-year renewal of his exclusive agreement with DC Comics.
"I'm ecstatic that Michael will continue to man the front desk of GOTHAM CENTRAL," says Editor Matt Idelson. "He's a huge part of the reason this book has garnered the critical accolades that it has! And if you thought the Joker story was intense, wait'll you see what he's drawing now. It'll blow you away!"
"This is my eighth year working exclusively with DC, and I couldn't be happier about it," says Lark. "I've had nothing but good experiences in the past, and I fully expect that to be the case for the coming year as well. I'm really excited to be devoting my attentions to every issue of the GOTHAM CENTRAL monthly for the foreseeable future, and I'm also thrilled about the upcoming trade paperback."
Marcelo Frusin, illustrator of VERTIGO's HELLBLAZER, has extended his exclusive agreement with DC for three years.
"We couldn't be happier that Marcelo has decided to accept our offer and renew his exclusive contract," says Editor Will Dennis. "He is doing amazing work on HELLBLAZER that's really defined that character for the current generation of readers. Marcelo has grown tremendously as an artist in the past few years because he is constantly challenging himself. I consider him the most underrated artist in comics, and I can't wait to change that in the near future. He's going to blow people away with all the things we have planned."
"I'm really honored because of the generosity and affection that DC has treated me during this years," says Frusin. "I couldn't imagine a better place to continue my career. I thank the extraordinary people of VERTIGO for the absolute freedom they give me to draw one of their most loved characters, John Constantine. I also look forward to drawing some of DC's other characters!"
