In November the Bat books are all changing up their creative teams, and American Vampire writer Scott Snyder will be helming Detective Comics. And today it was announced that Jock will be handling the art chores for the title during his run. The artist had this to say.
“I always wanted to work on a Batman story…something I could be proud of,” said the artist most known for his acclaimed “Losers” series, whose stripped down style most recently graced an arc of “Detective” when Batwoman headlined the title. “It’s true I prefer stand alone stories, and I’m probably not the guy to go to for big crossover events, but I feel Batman is a pretty good fit for what I try and do. I love the character, and Scott’s idea just seemed so good that everything just clicked for me. So it was the story rather than the idea of taking on a monthly book that did it.”
Jock is best known for his work on The Losers with writer Andy Diggle, and recently did a story arc in Detective Comics with Greg Rucka featuring Batwoman. He also provided art for Andy Diggle’s Green Arrow: Year One.
