Walter Simonson Goes Exclusive With DC
Writer/artists Walter Simonson has signed a one-year exclusive with DC Comics.
"For the past four or five years I've worked primarily for DC," said Simonson. "Partly, it's because I enjoy the company of the people I work with there, editors like Joey Cavalieri, writers like Michael Moorcock, and artists like John Paul Leon. And it's also because I've had the chance to draw some personal favorites such as Orion and the New Gods, Green Lantern, the original Captain Marvel, and even a little Batman. I feel I've done some of my best work in the last few years at DC."
Simonson will begin a six-issue run as writer of Wonder Woman this February. Jerry Ordway and P. Craig Russell will provide the art with Adam Hughes on cover art. The six-part story, "The Game of the Gods," begins in issue #189, which will be solicited in the December issue of Previews. Issue #189 is scheduled to be in stores February 26.
"Walt has been one of my personal favorite artists since I was an intern photocopying his Batman/Manhunter story in 1974," said Mike Carlin, vice president and executive editor for the DC Universe titles. "And since meeting him at Marvel in 1981, I'm happy to say he's one of my favorite people as well. No matter what the project is, he comes to the table with tons of unique ideas and enthusiasm. Walt is an great, all-around talent, and DC's all the stronger for working with this major creator."
