Mark Chiarello: Artist by Design
Wed, 06/01/2011 - 12:00pm
We've spoken a lot about the editorial side of yesterday's historic announcement, with our editors Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza taking lead on things like new stories and finding the perfect writers to handle each of our books. I'd also like to call attention the visual side of this major initiative.
Our Vice President of Art Direction and Design, Mark Chiarello, has been aiding in the hand-selection of artists, working on designing new logos for our books, tweaking characters' looks and costumes with Jim Lee, and creating a fresh, new visual style for our historic renumbering coming this September.
Comics by nature are a visual medium, and we are very lucky - and grateful - to have someone as talented and hard-working as Mark taking that important lead at such a momentous time in DC's history.
