DC announces Brightest Day series, new hire David Finch named as cover artist

Following the events of the current DC crossover Blackest Night, DC Comics will launch Brightest Day, a 26 issue series written by popular writers Geoff Johns and Peter Tomasi that will ship bi-weekly starting in April 2010 and will tie in with many ongoing DC titles and spawn some related mini-series. The series launches with a #0 issue, featuring artwork by Fernando Pasarin. Hot on the heels of the announcement comes word from DC as to who will be doing the covers for the series, and it is definitely someone of interest to us here at the JSA blog.

Dan Didio: As some of you may have noticed, we announced last week that David Finch had joined the DCU exclusively. We’ll be announcing more details about his projects in the coming months. But first, we’re excited to announce that he’ll be the regular cover artist on all the BRIGHTEST DAY books. I see this as a wonderful way to have David touch on all aspects of the DCU, and it gives fans the chance to see his interpretation of the entire DCU and its characters.
