Sam Kieth, acclaimed writer/illustrator of THE MAXX and ZERO GIRL, has signed an exclusive agreement with DC Comics.  Kieth will write and illustrate the 5-issue miniseries BATMAN: SECRETS, scheduled to begin in March.

“I seriously have no clue why DC offered me a contract, as I’ve never had one in my life,” says Kieth.  “I think I talked Dan DiDio into it before he knew what he was doing.  But since I’ve been working at DC for a while, I guess it just sorta made sense.  With BATMAN: SECRETS, this is the Batman I was looking to do in SCRATCH — one who’s more more serious and realistic (or as realistic as I get).  I think I did this Batman project because I was looking forward to working with Scott Dunbier again, and I wanted to draw the Joker, plus I needed the money!  I do want to thank Dan and Scott for helping me working out this plot with the Batman/Joker thing.”

“It’s a true pleasure to be working with Sam again,” says WildStorm Executive Editor Scott Dunbier.  “His stories are quirky and thought-provoking while still being highly entertaining, and his art... well, it’s just gorgeous.”

“Sam brings such incredible creativity to the DCU,” says Dan DiDio, Senior VP — Executive Editor, DCU.  “His presence shows the extent and the breadth of our diversity.”
