Official Press Release
Jock, the artist of LOSERS and cover artist on BATMAN, has renewed his exclusive agreement with DC Comics.
"With THE LOSERS coming to its huge climax and the opportunity for other projects both with Vertigo and the DCU coming up, it seemed a perfect time to continue working with DC," says Jock. "I really couldn't have hoped for anything more from working with my editors... except perhaps the keys to that experimental Batplane they keep on the roof of 1700 Broadway. It's just selfish - all the DC staffers get to take it for a spin, but when it comes to the creators? Not a chance."
"Jock's drop-dead covers and dynamic storytelling on THE LOSERS have become a Vertigo mainstay," says Karen Berger, VP - Editorial Director, Vertigo. "We look forward to working with him as he brings his graphic signature style to more of our books."
Upcoming issues of THE LOSERS are available as follows:
- THE LOSERS #30 (SEP050309) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 30.
- THE LOSERS #31 (OCT050322) is solicited in the October Previews (Vol. XV #10) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 28.
- THE LOSERS #32 (NOV050327) is solicited in the November Previews (Vol. XV #11) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 25.
Artist Howard Porter, acclaimed for his amazing runs on THE FLASH and JLA, has extended his exclusive agreement with DC Comics.
"It's a pleasure to continue making comics with DC and working with the great (Senior Editor) Joey Cavalieri," says Porter. "I am striving to make the next few years my most creative ones yet. To ensure that, as a signing bonus DC has shared their super-secret mantra with me and now I would like to share it with everyone else. Just remember, use it only for good: In brightest day, in darkest night, no comic shall escape my sight - let those who worship comics' might, beware my power... DC Comics' Light!"
"Uh, welcome to the Corps, Howard," says Cavalieri. "It's great to have Howard continuing with DC... and wait till you see his work on JONNY QUEST!"
