Kurt Busiek, writer of Astro City and JLA and upcoming writer of Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis, has signed an exclusive agreement with DC Comics.

Busiek also will co-write the 8-part story "Up, Up and Away" with Geoff Johns beginning in March's Superman #650 and Action Comics #837.

"It was great to be asked to come into the DC fold full time and join in on the One Year Later shebang," Busiek said. "I think things are really popping at DC, and there's a welcome emphasis not just on doing event stories to get attention, but making sure there's something interesting and valuable going on in the books so readers will want to stick around for the long haul.

"All the stuff we're talking about doing, from revamping and reworking Aquaman to doing a follow-up of sorts to Superman: Secret Identity, to the possibility of some new creator-owned material to accompany Astro City -- it's all been challenging and involving and varied. I'm enjoying working with Matt Idelson and Nachie Castro on the Superman books, and with Joey Cavalieri on Aquaman, and they're making it clear I've got a lot of freedom to do new stuff. I think we're headed for a great ride."

"With Kurt, we bring another one of the most talented writers in comics to the DCU, whose knowledge of our characters is almost second to none," said Dan DiDio, Senior VP -- Executive Editor, DCU.

Narwain Publishing has scheduled a February relase for Hollywood Noir, a 48-page written by Dario Maria Gulli, with art by Dick Giordano and Joe Rubinstein.

Here's how Narwain describes the book:

"Hollywood Noir is set in the sleazy underbelly of 1950s Hollywood where a jealous producer and his trophy wife enter into a dangerous game of obsession, sex and murder. It's up to an ex-cop turned screenwriter to wade into the shocking underworld of Hollywood royalty and unravel this noir tale of death and desire."

Gulli previously wrote the Wall After Wall graphic novel.

"Like many people, I've always been fascinated with the lives of movie celebrities," said Gulli. "As often as not, these extravagant, alluring people have a dark side that shocks us, though part of us loves to see it. This was never more true than in the 1950s industry and Hollywood Noir is my chance to play in that world."

Hollywood Noir will cost $5.99.
