During the Top Cow Productions panel at the Baltimore Comicon, it was announced Michael Broussard has signed a three year exclusive contract with the company.
Broussard began his career in 2006 as one of the hopefuls selected during Top Cow’s Talent Search and studied under Top Cow founder Marc Silvestri in the Top Cow Studio. His first published work appeared in Civil War: The Initiative where he assisted Silvestri and was quickly followed by his first solo professional work in Unholy Union, an over-sized crossover between Top Cow and Marvel characters written by Ron Marz (First Born, Witchblade). Broussard so impressed Top Cow Vice President of Editorial Rob Levin that he was given his biggest assignment to date and one of the crown jewels of Top Cow’s publishing line, the new The Darkness ongoing written by Phil Hester (Green Arrow, Deep Sleeper).
“Michael is one of those rare talents that is almost ready to go out of the box,” stated Levin in a prepared statement, “We’re incredibly thrilled to have secured him for our fans on The Darkness for years to come. Fans are going to be blown away by what he and Phil Hester do on this title.”
Take the jump for Broussard’s cover work for The Darkness First Look.
Forever changed by the events of FIRST BORN, Jackie Estacado, bearer of The Darkness, breaks free of his former life and begins a fresh chapter. Join new writer Phil Hester (GREEN ARROW, DEEP SLEEPER) and exciting new art talent Michael Broussard (UNHOLY UNION) in taking a FIRST LOOK at the new THE DARKNESS ongoing series beginning in December!
