EXCLUSIVE: Philip Tan Takes Over Hellblazer Art In February

Philip Tan will take over art duties on DC’s Hellblazer beginning in February, Bleeding Cool has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Tan replaces Moritat, who is leaving the book after issue #4, with Pia Guerra filling in until Tan takes over as regular series artist on issue #7 with writer Simon Oliver. In a statement from DC, Oliver said:

After a successful, record-breaking reboot, the irrepressible Moritat will be moving on and the pencil and ink duties will be passing into the capable and diligent hands of the one and only Philip Tan. As the book progresses onwards and upwards, strap yourself in and be prepared to be excited, thrilled and all-around awed by Tan’s work

The news comes via someone at Comics Alliance accidentally publishing a story about it and then quickly deleting it, possibly due to an embargo. It’s still there in Google Cache, however:


But absent from Comics Alliance itself:


Yeah, a little bit. But their loss is Bleeding Cool’s gain. :)

Here’s some EXCLUSIVE art from Hellblazer #7 from Philip Tan:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
