Top Cow Productions has added Stjepan Sejic to their stable of talent. This comes shortly after the announcement of the resigning of Tyler Kirkham. The contract with Croatian Sejic is exclusive with the company.
Beyond his painting skills, Stjepan will be illustrating fully-painted issues of Witchblade beginning with issue #105.
“I’m thrilled to have these great opportunities, and to be working for a company as prestigious as Top Cow,” Sejic said. “It’s only been a short time that I’ve been working in American comics, and it’s wonderful to get this kind of recognition already.”
“Stjepan is an artist we’ve had our eye for some time”, said Top Cow VP Sales and Marketing Filip Sablik. “We already knew he was an incredibly skilled colorist, but once we saw the caliber of his painted work we knew it would be a short time before this newcomer was a household name.”
After taking a closer look at Stjepan’s work on The Darkness (see thumbnail above), I can say I’m very impressed, and am looking forward to his run on Witchblade, which, as I found out, will feature the return of The Magdalena.
