ETHAN VAN SCIVER, JERRY ORDWAY EXCLUSIVE TO DC COMICS

DC Comics on Tuesday announced it had signed artists Ethan Van Sciver and Jerry Ordway to exclusive, two-year deals.

"DC Comics and I are finally going steady," Van Sciver said. "It's a distinct honor and a privilege to join the ranks of DC exclusives, and I wish to thank Dan DiDio, Joey Cavalieri, Peter Tomasi, Stephen Wacker and all of the editors and staff who have made the past year so enjoyable and exciting for me. I'm grateful to be recognized as one of the creators who DC doesn't like to share with other companies. That's love reciprocated.

"With Batman/Catwoman: Trail of a Gun and several Flash covers completed and ready for release later this year, I'm looking forward to the challenges that 2004 will bring, and anticipating the monumental project that comes with the signing of this contract."

"Ethan is a very accomplished creator on the verge of becoming a comic book superstar, sakd Dan DiDio, DC's VP -- editorial. Ethan's style and attention to detail is exactly what we are looking for as we continue to push and improve on the caliber of our storytelling. He is a welcome new addition to the DC family."

The Continuum caught up with Van Sciver at the Orlando MegaCon, where he said he spent a year on Batman/Catwoman: Trail of a Game, a two-part Prestige Format mini-series written by Ann Nocenti.

"It's the most detailed thing I've ever done," he told The Continuum.

Van Sciver also told The Continuum he will be doing some JSA covers and will be working on a major project that should be released in the fall.

The two issues of Batman/Catwoman: Trail of a Gun will ship in August and September.

Ordway's most recent DC work is inking John Byrne's pencils on JLA.

"I have had many great experiences in 20-plus years in this business, and most have happened while working for DC Comics," Ordway said. "I'm thrilled to be working exclusively for DC, with editors like Scott Dunbier, Mike Carlin, Peter Tomasi and others over the next two years, doing a job I love."

"Jerry Ordway is a tremendous talent whose artistic style is in the best tradition of classic Golden Age illustrators but without ever feeling dated," said Scott Dunbier, executive editor -- WildStorm. "I look forward to continuing our working relationship."
