Via Bleeding Cool:
In a shocking coup for DC Comics, longtime Marvel writer “The Great One” Brian Bendis has switched sides, signing a multi-year exclusive deal with the company. DC announced the news on Twitter, saying, “We are beyond thrilled to welcome Brian Michael Bendis exclusively to the DC family with a multiyear, multi-faceted deal. He’s one of the premier writers in the industry having created so many unforgettable stories wherever he’s been and we can’t wait to see what he has planned for the DC Universe.”
Whoa. Genuinely shocked to read this.
I had always assumed Bendis would be with Marvel until he walked off into the comic book sunset. Hopefully this move refreshes him creatively, not that I’ve found him to be any less entertaining these past few years but I’m sure he’s looking forward to a change.
I’m really interested to see not only what books he’s on but what he has planned for the characters involved.
