Marvel has announced it has signed artist Aaron Kuder to an exclusive contract with the publisher.
Kuder’s first assignment is teaming up with comic superstars Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire for the highly anticipated 4-issue DEATH OF X series, beginning in October. Set after the events of Secret Wars, DEATH OF X chronicles the previously untold story of rising tensions between two of Marvel’s most iconic groups – and sets the stage for the blockbuster Inhumans vs. X-Men event later this year.
“I couldn’t be more ecstatic about Aaron coming to Marvel,” says Marvel Executive Editor Nick Lowe. “I’ve been trying to get him over to Marvel for a few years now, but when this momentous story came up I knew we needed an artist capable of bringing it to life, and Aaron hasn’t disappointed. In fact, he’s turning in the best work of his career!”
“I’m completely stoked to be working at the House of Ideas again,” said Kuder. ‘I grew up as a Marvel kid (no really, my 7th birthday wish: grow up to be Spider-Man. But don’t tell anyone. Otherwise it won’t come true.)”
Death of X #1 arrives in stores in October.
