Bryan Hitch Not DC-Exclusive, Returns To Marvel With Sinister War

This morning, Bleeding Cool told you that Marvel were to launch a new Spider-Man event, Sinister War, with Kindred potentially controlling Sinister Six – and Twelve – members. Now Marvel has taken it all official – as well as including a cover by Bryan Hitch, who was previously an exclusive creator to DC Comics. Though we have noticed that last year, DC was dropping a number of exclusive deals with big name creators. Here's Bryan Hitch's cover for Sinister War #1.

And while this is just a cover, it demonstrates that DC Comics' exclusive is no longer valid. I also hear the rumour that Bryan Hitch has a big Marvel Comics series planned, to be announced soon. Keep your ears to the ground, And regarding Sinister War, here's the PR:

This July, an all-out war between two of Spider-Man's greatest villains and their own Sinister Sextets erupts in SINISTER WAR! Exploding out of Nick Spencer's pulse-pounding run on Amazing Spider-Man, this all-new series pits Doctor Octopus's Sinister Six against Vulture's Savage Six in a war that puts all of New York City in the crossfire. These deadly groups of foes are out for blood: Spider-Man's and each other's! With art by Mark Bagley, SINISTER WAR will be the latest epic in Spencer's transformative work on the Spider-Man mythos, packed with even more surprising developments including the grand return of Doctor Octopus!

"Nick Spencer always goes big," says Editor Nick Lowe, "and this is his biggest story yet through this series and the concurrent issues of Amazing Spider-Man, so clear some room on your 'Best Comics Ever' shelf."
