David Finch began his career in comics as the artist on the Top Cow Productions title, Cyberforce, before co-creating the series Ascension. While at Top Cow, Finch also worked on such titles as Aphrodite IX, The Darkness and Tales of the Witchblade.
In 2003, Finch began working with Brian Micheal Bendis on a year-long story arc for Marvel's Ultimate X-Men before the duo moved on to Avengers and New Avengers. During his eight years at Marvel Comics, he worked on such titles as Moon Knight, Ultimatum, Wolverine, and Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America - Spider-Man.
In 2010, Finch announced that he was leaving Marvel to become an exclusive artist with DC Comics and was one of several artist who worked on the bi-weekly title, Brightest Day. In January of 2011, Finch began writing and drawing Batman: The Dark Knight.
After DC's launch of the New 52, he continued writing and drawing the second volume of the Batman: The Dark Knight, as well as providing cover art for Justice League, Justice League International and Birds of Prey. He is currently the artist on the recently launched Justice League of America.
"David is one of the most talented artists working in comics today and we couldn't be happier to have him returning to Baltimore again this year," said Marc Nathan, show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. "He's a fan-favorite creator so this will be a real treat for everyone attending the show."
