Hard-working colorist Frankie D'Armata has scored an exclusive 3-year contract with Marvel Comics. To the Man of 1000 Colors, this is a dream come true. "I've always wanted to work for Marvel and now I have that chance, and I haven't found a nicer group of people to work for!" exclaims D'Armata.
The creative colorist has been involved with some high-profile projects and has worked with a bevy of comic book luminaries: Ultimate Nightmare with Ellis and Harsine; The New Avengers with Bendis and Finch; and, of course, the new Captain America with Epting and Brubaker.
"Comic colorists can sometimes be overlooked among all the other creators," says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "But Frankie's work has so captured our imaginations and we had no doubt we wanted him on top Marvel projects. There's no way any reader could not notice his beautiful work."
The future look's bright for D'Armata but he's a bit coy about exactly what that future entails. "I will be starting to work on a new Bendis book that hasn't been talked about yet, but it will be something to put the Universe on its ear!"
