Official Press Release
ACTION COMICS penciller Ivan Reis (Captain Marvel) has signed a two-year exclusive agreement with DC Comics.
"I almost flipped when DC approached me about the exclusive contract," says Reis. "To me that's real proof of faith in my work. Now I have more time and tranquility to pencil a page, and the chance to go wild with so many DC characters - characters I grew up with! One of the plusses in all this is (Group Editor) Eddie Berganza. Besides being a great guy to work with and a remarkable editor, he gives me all the freedom to create an artist could ask for, always ready to inspire me to do my best. Chuck Austen's plots and subplots are a treat, always in the best super-hero tradition. And my efforts to make ACTION COMICS exciting wouldn't be possible without Marc Campos's inks. I also have to mention Guy Major's colors! In a nutshell, I couldn't be happier to work with such a... um... SUPER crew!"
"Ivan's work on the ACTION COMICS has been nothing short of spectacular," says Dan DiDio, DC's VP - Editorial. "He's captured the spirit and energy of Superman, and we're very happy to have him on board."
