DC Comics has announced it has signed and exclusive contract with David Finch, artist of Aphrodite IX, Avengers Disassembled, Daredevil, Ultimatum, Moon Knight, New Avengers, and many more Marvel titles.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the DC family! It feels too good to be true that I’m going to have the chance to draw some of the most dynamic, iconic, and fun characters in the business. I’ve been a DC comics fan for a very long time, so it’s a very big honor to finally have a part in their creation.”

Before the big move to a regular DC title, Finch will be providing cover work in the early part of this year. DC is keeping mum on what projects Finch will be working on, although with the big name titles he’s worked on for Marvel, the same will probably hold true for DC.  Finch did some name dropping of writers he would like to work with including Geoff Johns, Paul Dini, and Grant Morrison.  Finch has done a lot of Batman art, and is a solid writer too, so I’m going to put that down on my list as possible places we’ll see DC’s new exclusive artist.  Where do you think we’ll see Finch pop up at DC?

    Exclusive contracts are nice so I won’t hate on Mr. Finch. But I’m curious as to what the deal is here. He is one of these notoriously slow artists like Steve McNiven? I thought I would see more Marvel work out of them. Let’s face it, Ultimatum was a waste of his talent….

    Honestly, the first thing that pops to my mind is Wild Dog.

    Yeah, I know Dan Dido told Ian Sattler that he wouldn’t do a Wild Dog series. But I think it would make a good little mini or maybe even a back up, sorry, “Second Feature.”

    I always enjoyed the character and would like to see more with him, other than miniscule backgrounds.

    Maybe I should submit my Wild Dog idea. HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Honestly, while he may want to work with Dini and work on Batman, but I’m seriously hoping that they never pair Dini with anyone but Dustin Nguyen so long as the two are willing to work together.

    Their pairing, first on Detective and then on Streets of Gotham, has been one of the most perfect for Batman stories since … well, since I started reading comics in the 80s.

    Well I hope he doesn’t get put on any good books because David Finch is straight up a terrible artist.
