Official Press Release
Hey, True Believer!
Ever since he made his Marvel debut on WOLVERINE #54, everyone in the
Bullpen knew that Darick Robertson would one day become one of The House’s
superstar artists. And now — 10 years later — Darick has fulfilled that
promise by joining the ranks of the industry’s elite by signing a two-year
exclusive contract to create comics here at Marvel!
Thanks to the agreement, fans of Darick’s work can now look forward to a
steady stream of projects, including next month’s SPIDER-MAN: SWEET CHARITY
one-shot (penned by TANGLED WEB #13 writer Ron Zimmerman), August’s PUNISHER
#15 (written by his FURY partner, Garth Ennis) and X-MEN UNLIMITED #35 (with
ELEKTRA’s Greg Rucka), and this Fall’s DEATHLOK: DETOUR MAX mini-series
(written by Xeric Award-winner Daniel Way).
“Darick is doing some amazing work; the best of his career,” stated Marvel
Editor In Chief Joe Quesada. “Crisp, clear storytelling, great
characterization and facial expressions and his draftsmanship are amongst
the best in the business. We’re excited to have him make Marvel his creative
home and allow us to promote him to the fullest. Keep an eye out for any and
all of Darick’s projects. Anyone who knows Darick and his whacked-out sense
of humor knows that if Darick is drawing a project, it’s going to be
unusual, commercially successful and critically acclaimed.”
By becoming a Marvel exclusive artist, Darick joins stellar company,
standing alongside the likes of Kevin Smith (SPIDER-MAN/BLACK CAT), Adam
Kubert (ULTIMATE X-MEN), Andy Kubert (ORIGIN), Salvador Larroca (X-TREME
X-MEN), Bryan Hitch (THE ULTIMATES), Ethan Van Sciver (NEW X-MEN), Lee Weeks
(THE INCREDIBLE HULK), Ron Garney (UNCANNY X-MEN), Igor Kordey (CABLE), and
