Marvel has just snagged a major artist as Pat Gleason has signed an exclusive agreement with the publisher. I adored his work on Superman after Rebirth as his artwork brought equal parts warmth and excitement. Needless to say, I cannot wait to see what he brings to the Marvel Universe. We’ll get a chance to see his work this July in a short story in Amazing Spider-Man #25.
Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski says:
Pat and I started our comic book careers together almost two decades ago, and ever since joining Marvel, he’s an artist I’ve been dying to work with here, to have him draw our incredible characters. I’m thrilled that the stars have now aligned and Pat’s joined us in the hallowed halls of the House of ideas. Trust me, the contributions he’s going to make to our comics are going to mind-blowing!
The announcement was made at the Marvel Comics: Make Mine Marvel panel at Fan Expo Dallas where Gleason revealed the awesome artwork above showing his take on popular characters in the Marvel Universe.
I am so pumped to be joining the Marvel family as a newly exclusive artist and writer. C.B. and everyone at Marvel have been so welcoming and enthusiastic about what we are going to do together, and it’s been nothing short of awesome! Since I was a kid, I’ve dreamed of working with their iconic, and now world-renowned heroes. It’s exhilarating at this point in my career to reach a new high point, and to be drawing the Amazing Spider-Man! I can’t wait for fans of the Marvel Universe to see the crazy and exciting comics we’re going to make together!
Marvel has promised more reveals of Gleason’s artwork in the coming months and I can’t wait.
