DC Look To Top Cow For Exclusive Hunt

After a quick flurry of exclusive announcements earlier in the year, I understand that Marvel have been trying to quietly lock down some of their bigger talents ahead of exclusive hunting trips by DC Comics, for a flurry of summer announcements.

But in a left turn, DC appear to be turning their focus to the likes of Top Cow talent.

Pages on the new DCU book David Finch will be writing and drawing have been coming in at what the office in question have described to one source as “Kubert speed.” Well, he has had a number of covers for other books to rattle off as well..

So Dan Didio is looking to find artists with compatible styles to help David Finch out. Which means taking a trip to Top Cow, where Finch learnt his craft, along with other Marc Silvestri-influenced artists.

Tyler Kirkham was an early hire, working initially on Green Lantern but available to move over should the need arise. Certainly he’ll be an exclusive soon. And more are expected to join him.
It’s odd to consider that Wildstorm and Top Cow were once the same studio, Homage. DC bought Wildstorm, but it seems like they may be trying more of a bovine blood transfusion this time…
