Enquiring minds want to know what fan-favorite penciller Aaron Lopresti is going to do next, now that he's just signed an exclusive 3-year contract with Marvel Comics.
"I'm going to Disneyworld!" bellowed Lopresti, apparently fraught with joy.
In between treating his inner child to numerous trips to the Magic Kingdom, Lopresti has worked on such stalwart Marvel projects as What The?!
, Amazing Spider-Man
, Captain Marvel
, and, of course, his current art assignment on the heavy-hitting X-series Excalibur
. True Believers everywhere are waiting for this astonishing artist to stop spinning around in giant teacups and return to drawing the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe.
"If Aaron's happy, we're happy!" grins Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "No matter where he spends his vacations, it's good to know he'll be coming back home to good ol' Marvel."
Marvel Publisher Dan Buckley concurs. "What Joe said!"
Lopresti could not be reached for further comment, but operators of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" have quoted him as saying "Drink up, me hearties, yo ho!"
