Along with a slew of creative team announcements for its impending “Rebirth” relaunch, DC Comics also confirmed new exclusive deals for two of its top talents on Saturday morning at WonderCon in Los Angeles: writer Scott Snyder and artist Amanda Conner.
Snyder, whose celebrated run on “Batman” with artist Greg Capullo is set to wrap next month with issue #51, was already under an exclusive deal with DC, but this is confirmation he’s sticking with the publisher in the Rebirth era. Snyder’s latest DC book, “All-Star Batman,” was announced at Saturday’s Rebirth presentation: A villain-focused Batman series illustrated by a variety of artists, including John Romita Jr., Sean G. Murphy, Afua Richardson and Tula Lotay.
Snyder confirmed to CBR News that like his previous DC exclusive deal, he’ll be allowed to continue on his Image Comics creator-owned books like “Wytches.”
Conner, who found fame in comics as an artist but now is primarily known as the co-writer (with Jimmy Palmiotti) of DC’s hit “Harley Quinn” series, revealed Saturday morning during DC’s presentation that her new deal includes a guarantee that she’ll draw at least three books for the publisher. “I am contractually obligated to draw at least three books for you,” Conner said. As previously revealed, Conner designed characters and illustrated promotional art for DC’s upcoming “Flintstones” series.
In recent weeks, DC has announced exclusive deals with creators including Tom King, Clay Mann, John Timms, Steve Orlando, Evan Shaner and Jesus Merino. Keep reading CBR for the latest news from WonderCon.
