TYLER KIRKHAM DC Exclusive, Drawing GLC
The latest DC Comics announcement came this morning with artist Tyler Kirkham signing an exclusive contract with the publisher. Kirkham, best known for his work with Top Cow and Marvel, makes the jump to DC starting as the new ongoing artist of Green Lantern Corps with October 2010's issue.
Kirkham said to the DCU Blog The Source, “I am absolutely ecstatic to be working at DC and on Green Lantern
Corps. It’s great to be involved in the DC universe right now. They are
doing such big things. Its also cool to be on a Green Lantern title. Not
only are there tons of great characters, but they are all fun to draw,
because they are so Diverse. Also with the movie coming out soon it
makes things even more exciting. I am having so much fun already and I’m
only an issue in. The direction Tony is taking the story fits my art
style very well. Also to be working with Batt again is a true pleasure.
After all he is the best inker in the biz in my opinion. Plus to have
Nei Ruffino coloring my work is amazing. I have worked with her on a
couple small things in the past, but have always wanted to work with her
on a bigger scale.”
Kirkham's exclusive also revealed the mystery of the "return of the Black Lanterns" in October. The book, which Kirkham is providing a cover for, will be called Untold Tales of the Black Lanterns and more will be revealed on Monday.
