Brian Michael Bendis Leaves Marvel, Signs Exclusive Deal With DC Comics

DC Comics Signs Brian Michael Bendis to Exclusive Contract Brian Michael Bendis Leaves Marvel, Signs Exclusivity Deal With DC

Regardless of what the likes of The Flash and Batman get up to in the coming years, this here is the big one: Brian Michael Bendis, one of Marvel's key creatives and universal architects since 2000, has just signed a multiyear exclusive deal with DC Comics. It was in the pages of Ultimate Spider-Man that Bendis (along with artist Sara Pichelli) created Miles Morales, who has gone on to fame as a fan-favorite Spider-Man of his own. And now he's jumped ship to DC.

Mr. Bendis started out as a writer for small press comic book publishers. And which writers would you like to see take over for Bendis on his current comics?

Expect news on Bendis' first DC title soon.

Interestingly enough, Bendis leaving Marvel follows their "big" Marvel Legacy initiative, and Bendis was also a part of Ike Perlmutter's Marvel Comics Creative Committee, so I wonder what has become of that?

The statement reads, in full: "Brian is a great partner and has contributed incredible stories and characters to the Marvel Universe over the years".

Bendis confirmed the news shortly after, saying "change is good". "Details to come! Stay tuned!" he continued. We wish him luck in his future endeavors and, like DC, can't wait to see what he can do with a fresh slate of characters. Some of note though include Powers, New Avengers, Daredevil, Alias, Jinx, House of M, Secret Invasion, Spider-Woman and All-New X-MenHe also was lead writer on a few video games for Marvel, including Activision's Ultimate Spider-Man, Marvel Heroes, and an Avengers game that never saw release.

I'm no fan of Bendis especially after he snaked Guardians of the Galaxy from Abnett and Lanning and ruined the comics and characters.
