DAVE GIBBONS EXCLUSIVE TO DC

Dave Gibbons, writer and artist of the upcoming original Vertigo hardcover graphic novel The Originals, has signed a two-year exclusive agreement with DC Comics.

"For the past 20 years, I've felt like part of the DC family," Gibbons said. "Probably 90 percent of my U.S. work has been for DC, so I thought it was time for us to move in together, so to speak. When I was growing up, DC Comics were my favorites -- they were always the comics company. There are some interesting plans afoot in the DCU. After The Originals comes out, I'll get a chance to be a part of that, which is something that's creatively very exciting, and as a dyed-in-the-wool fan I am just thrilled."

"Dave's the man," said Karen Berger, VP -- Executive Editor, Vertigo. "With The Originals, his phenomenal original graphic novel, he's proven that he's an artist and a writer to be reckoned with. It's wonderful to have Dave 'officially' part of the family, and we look forward to more provocative and powerful stories from him."

The Originals is scheduled for an October release.
