Viktor Bogdanovic has signed a contract with DC Entertainment to "create content solely" for DC and Vertigo ahead of his segue from New Super-Man to Action Comics in June. Bogdanovic, who debuted in the North American industry in 2013 with Image Comics Reality Check, has been working consistently with DC since late 2014.
“Hiring an artist like Viktor, who has clean lines and clear characters, was perfect to launch New Super-Man,” said Bob Harras, DC's Editor-In-Chief. “With this success, I’m looking forward to seeing what Viktor does this summer with Action Comics. We have an incredible creative team here at DC and we’re always looking for talented new writers and artists to join our ranks.”
The German artist began at DC with the digital-first Batman: Arkham Knight title, and then moved onto Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot and then most recently launching New Super-Man with Gene Luen Yang as part of "Rebirth."
“Drawing the Man of Steel himself in Action Comics is another childhood dream come true,” Bogdanovic said. “There are exciting things happening at DC right now and I’m delighted to be a part of it.”
DC's announcement of Bogdanovic's deal doesn't specify the length of the deal, but curiously avoids the use of the term "exclusive."
