Writers/Artist Pat Gleason Signs Exclusive Deal With Marvel

True I am a little biased towards DC as that is the home to some of my all time favorite heroes, but as a comic book fan in general I like to see writers and artists take on different types of stories and characters. One of those writers/artists is Pat Gleason who along side Peter J. Tomasi co-wrote one of my favorite Superman runs that had him focus a lot on his family during Rebirth. He has also worked on titles like Aquaman, Green Lantern Corps and Batman & Robin. His most recent title over at DC was Brian Michael Bendis’ Young Justice, which will also be his last work at DC for a while.

This past weekend at the Marvel Comics: Make Mine Marvel panel at Fan Expo Dallas, it was revealed that Gleason has agreed to an exclusive agreement with Marvel Comics. Along with his announcement, he revealed his take on the Marvel Universe with this awesome new art piece that showcases some of Marvel Comics’ most iconic characters, which you can check out above. Via his Twitter account he went on to let everyone know that he was going to be the new artist on Amazing Spider-Man. But his first work will be a short story in Amazing Spider-Man #25 in July.

“Pat and I started our comic book careers together almost two decades ago, and ever since joining Marvel, he’s an artist I’ve been dying to work with here, to have him draw our incredible characters,” said Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “I’m thrilled that the stars have now aligned and Pat’s joined us in the hallowed halls of the House of ideas. Trust me, the contributions he’s going to make to our comics are going to mind-blowing!”

“I am so pumped to be joining the Marvel family as a newly exclusive artist and writer,” said Gleason. “C.B. and everyone at Marvel have been so welcoming and enthusiastic about what we are going to do together, and it’s been nothing short of awesome! Since I was a kid, I’ve dreamed of working with their iconic, and now world-renowned heroes. It’s exhilarating at this point in my career to reach a new high point, and to be drawing the Amazing Spider-Man! I can’t wait for fans of the Marvel Universe to see the crazy and exciting comics we’re going to make together!”

It’s a shame that he will not be part of the current DC Universe, but I am very excited to see what he does with Spider-Man over at Marvel. Are you excited to see Gleason jump over to Marvel? Let us know in the comment section below!
