Eduardo Risso, artist of the Vertigo title 100 BULLETS, has signed an exclusive, three-year agreement with DC Comics.
"One of the reasons I signed with DC is because I want to keep the 100 BULLETS team together," says Risso, a native of Argentina. "Working with Vertigo is really good for me, and the editors treat me wonderfully."
"Nobody draws characters cooler than Eduardo," says Vertigo executive editor Karen Berger. "His fluid and compelling storytelling, stylish design, and sheer artistic craft has helped make 100 BULLETS one of the smartest, suspenseful and most seductive books in comics."
Risso is also developing an as-yet-untitled BATMAN graphic novel with 100 BULLETS writer Brian Azzarello.
DC also announced that BATMAN writer Ed Brubaker has renewed his exclusive contract.
