DC Comics has signed two of the hottest artists in comics to 3-year exclusive agreements: Adam Kubert (Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men) and Andy Kubert (1602, Origin, Ultimate Iron Man, Ultimate X-Men).
" I am so thrilled and excited to be a part of DC Comics, " says Andy. " After making my home at Marvel for the last 15 years - a place that I love and will continue to do so - I get to stretch my wings a bit and tackle the DC icons! I can ' t wait! As a comics artist, I can ' t tell you how fortunate I feel right now to have the career that I have had, in a medium that I love so much. I am very, very lucky. "
" This is a big move for Andy and myself ... huge ... and it ' s hard to put into words the excitement I ' m feeling, " says Adam. " I could say how accommodating and professional DC Comics has been in all our dealings, in particular Dan DiDio and Terri Cunningham (VP - Managing Editor). I could say that I ' m finally going to get to draw all those iconic characters I grew up with. I could say that I sincerely feel my best work is yet to come. It ' s difficult to put this all into a compact soundbite. So, let me steal a quote from my mom instead: ' What more could a mother want? ' "
" Without a doubt this is one of the highlights of my time here at DC, " says Dan DiDio, VP - Executive Editor, DCU. " Never has any signing felt so right. Both of these men belong here, and the entire company is excited that they will be working on our greatest characters. "
Some of their previous work for DC Comics may be found in the ADAM STRANGE: MAN OF TWO WORLDS TP.
