DC signs Viktor Bogdanovic to exclusive contract

In my time here at Batman News, I’ve been exposed to a lot of new and exciting talent.  One of my personal favorite discoveries has been the excellent work of Viktor Bogdanovic.  Currently the penciler for the under-appreciated New Super-Man, Bogdanovic came to my attention through the better-than-it-had-any-right-to-be Batman: Arkham Knight tie-in.

In an excellent move, DC Comics have signed him to an exclusive contract to create DC and Vertigo content.  From the announcement:

“I started working for DC in late 2014,” said Bogdanovic. “It’s been an amazing place for me. My very first book was BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT and then came SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: DEADSHOT. More recently, I had the unique chance to help create a cooler character than Batman—of course I’m talking about New Super-Man, Kong Kenan.”

Controversial closing statement notwithstanding, this is a pretty exciting development.  Bogdanovic has a clean style that has shades of the beloved Greg Capullo while staying distinctly his own.  Here’s to a long, healthy relationship with DC Comics.

Check out the gallery below with some of his work on New Super-Man, including the Bat-Man of China to keep it relevant.  He’s fun.
