Frazer Irving joins Batman and Robin with Issue 13

by  in Comic News Comment

DC Comics announced this morning that Frazer Irving will follow Andy Clarke as artist on Batman and Robin beginning with June’s Issue 13.

Irving, who collaborated with writer Grant Morrison on 2005’s Seven Soldiers: Klarion the Witch Boy, joins an impressive art roster that’s already featured Clarke, Frank Quitely, Philip Tan and Cameron Stewart.

At one point Irving was set for Issues 10-12, which initially were to be drawn by a returning Quitely.

Irving is also illustrating the second issue of the Morrison-penned Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne. That brings us to DC’s other Bat-related announcement — the full artist lineup for the six-issue miniseries: Chris Sprouse, Issue 1; Irving, Issue 2; Yanick Paquette, Issue 3; Cameron Stewart, Issue 4; Ryan Sook Issue 5; and Lee Garbett, Issue 6. The miniseries debuts in May.

“Frazer’s a unique comics creator in that he handles all aspects of the art chores — pencilling, inking and colors — which gives him the best creative control an artist could ask for,” Batman Editor Mike Marts told The Source. “And with fantastic results! Readers will drool when they see Frazer’s amazing pages to both Batman projects he’s working on.”
