Paul Cornell has announced he's signed an exclusive two year deal with DC Comics.
Writer for TV shows including Doctor Who, Robin Hood, Primeval and the upcoming Pulse, Paul Cornell was introduced to Marvel Comics through Mark Millar and worked on a number of series, creating the series MI13 and writing the upcoming Spitfire oneshot. His work at DC Comics started with the new Action Comics run and, as Dan Didio said yesterday "Paul Cornell is a guy who we see an expanded role for in the DCU as well."
Bleeding Cool first ran the story of Paul Cornell's exclusive three weeks ago. We'll probably run another exclusive story later.
