Alitha Martinez becomes regular artist on New Crusaders


Archie Comics has announced that the digital-first comic series New Crusaders has a new artist – Alitha Martinez.

Martinez joins writer Ian Flynn in this week’s (July 4, 2012) installment of the New Crusaders series.

“Alitha is a really versatile artist who’s been around in mainstream superhero comics for a while,” series Editor Paul Kaminski said in a prepared statement.

Alitha is more than up to the challenge, summing up her experience with, “It’s just a world I can plop in and try a different style. Every page I say to myself, ‘I’m doing a departure from Marvel’s way. I’m doing a departure from DC’s way.’ And now I’m in a whole new area.”
