"Wonder Woman" artist Liam Sharp has signed an exclusive contract with DC Entertainment, as announced today by the publisher. Sharp is currently illustrating "Wonder Woman" during Rebirth alongside writer Greg Rucka and fellow artist Nicola Scott.
The exclusive contract covers both DC Comics and their Vertigo imprint, and will run for two years. "I was floored that both Dan DiDio and Jim Lee called me up," Sharp said. "I'm thrilled to be associated with Diana in her 75th year and I look forward to the many great things ahead for Wonder Woman."
DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras said, "We couldn’t be more thrilled about Liam coming to DC and securing him on one of our highest profile titles of 2016. I knew we needed an artist capable of dynamically bringing 'Wonder Woman' to life on the page, and Liam’s work is simply exceptional."
The British artist began his professional career with stories for 2000 AD, and grew to prominence with his work on "Death's Head II" for Marvel UK in 1992, working steady for both Marvel and DC after that. He co-founded Mam Tor Publishing in 2004, and in 2011 co-founded digital publishing operation Madefire.
"Wonder Woman" #5, Sharp's most recent issue, is currently on sale now from DC Comics.
