Artist David Marquez has had a high-profile career at Marvel Comics, having worked on titles including Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, All-New X-Men, and Civil War II, all with writer Brian Michael Bendis. And now that Bendis is DC Comics-exclusive, so is Marquez.
Marquez’s first work for DC will be a relaunched Batman/Superman, with writer Joshua Williamson.
“I’ve been very fortunate that in a relatively short career I’d been able to work on some big projects. When I heard the possibility of working with DC, I wasn’t sure I wanted to do more work-for-hire stuff after wrapping up with Marvel. They really kind of had to sell me on the idea of doing the series.”
Scott Snyder and Jock’s The Batman Who Laughs miniseries will run seven issues, instead of six, which will lead into the relaunched Batman/Superman series, which is set to release August 14.
