DC Entertainment announced that they have signed an exclusive contract with Wonder Woman illustrator, Liam Sharp. The contract will serve as an agreement between the publisher and Sharp that the artist will create comic book content solely for the company’s DC and Vertigo imprints and will run for two years. Sharp is the current artist for the Wonder Woman “Rebirth” title and works alongside writer Greg Rucka and co-artist Nicola Scott.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled about Liam coming to DC and securing him on one of our highest profile titles of 2016. I knew we needed an artist capable of dynamically bringing Wonder Woman to life on the page, and Liam’s work is simply exceptional.”
says Bob Harras, Editor-in-Chief, DC Entertainment.
“I was floored that both Dan DiDio and Jim Lee called me up regarding a two-year contract with DC Comics. The sales and fan reaction to WONDER WOMAN have been staggering, heralding a return to the level of popularity such an iconic character deserves. I’m thrilled to be associated with Diana in her 75th year. I look forward to the many great things ahead for Wonder Woman.”
