Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that Aaron Kuder is exclusive to Marvel!
Reflecting on bringing his talents to Marvel, Kuder exclaimed â€œIâ€™m completely stoked to be working at the House of Ideas again. I grew up as a Marvel kid (no really, my 7th birthday wish: grow up to be Spider-Man. But donâ€™t tell anyone. Otherwise it wonâ€™t come true.)â€
Kuderâ€™s first assignment is teaming up with comic superstars Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire for the highly anticipated 4-issue DEATH OF X series, beginning in October. Set after the events of Secret Wars, DEATH OF X chronicles the previously untold story of rising tensions between two of Marvelâ€™s most iconic groups â€“ and sets the stage for the blockbuster Inhumans vs. X-Men event later this year.
â€œWorking on Death of X is a monster!â€ Kuder explains. â€œThis is easily the largest cast of characters Iâ€™ve had to work with to date. All the Inhumans, all the X-Menâ€¦itâ€™s a crazy amount to draw. All that grunt work is made better by the fact that Charles and Jeff are scribing it. Both these guys are amazing storytellers. Itâ€™s really an honor to be working with them.â€
â€œI couldnâ€™t be more ecstatic about Aaron coming to Marvel,â€ says Marvel Executive Editor Nick Lowe. â€œIâ€™ve been trying to get him over to Marvel for a few years now, but when this momentous story came up I knew we needed an artist capable of bringing it to life, and Aaron hasnâ€™t disappointed. In fact, heâ€™s turning in the best work of his career!â€
Fans can look forward to the first of Aaronâ€™s first new interior work when DEATH OF X #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices in October. Be on the lookout for announcements of future projects featuring this rising comic superstar. Once again, weâ€™re pleased to welcome Kuderâ€™s unique and energetic style exclusively to the Marvel Universe.
