Fri, 02/03/2012 - 12:00pm
We recently announced that writer/artist Rob Liefeld will be bringing his distinctive sensibilities to DEATHSTROKE, GRIFTER and THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 - and here's a look at the full creative teams for those series.
On GRIFTER, Liefeld's stories will be scripted by Frank Tieri, whose previous DC Comics work includes JSA CLASSIFIED, GOTHAM UNDERGROUND and BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS. Scott Clark will remain the ongoing series artist. Scripter Mark Poulton will support Liefeld's vision on THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN. Poulton's notable recent work includes a reboot of Liefeld's AVENGELYNE for Image Comics. HAWKMAN will be illustrated by Joe Bennett, whose prior DC Comics work includes TEEN TITANS, HAWKMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST.
And on DEATHSTROKE, Liefeld will shoulder both writing and illustration duties, kicking off a new storyline with a battle royale between the mercenary against intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo.
Liefeld and the new creative teams join these three series beginning with their ninth issues in May. Check out the covers for all three series here at The Source.
