With those words former Marvel now DC Comics writer Brian Michael Bendis marked the start of his DC Comics contract. Back in November, Bendis shocked the comic book community with his announcement that he would be leaving Marvel and join DC Comics in 2018. In an interview with cleveland.com back in November, Bendis revealed that a trip to the Cleveland Library which had a Superman exhibit inspired him to make the move over to DC.
“When I walked in and saw it, I felt like the library was my own personal museum that I needed to see and walk through. I then realized I had to take DC up on their offer, it was so head-turning that I really could not refuse.”
But unfortunately, a brush with death late last year due to a MRSA infection made his last month at Marvel a bit more difficult. As a result of that health scare, Bendis will still have to close out several of his Marvel titles that had been put on hold, like Invincible Iron Man, Spider-Man II, The Defenders and Jessica Jones. He has written for Marvel for over 17 years.
With his announcement on Twitter, DC Comics soon after took to social media to welcome Bendis to DC Comics saying:
