Press Release

Scott Snyder (Batman, Superman Unchained, SEVERED) and Jock (Batman, Wolverine, SNAPSHOT) will team up for a new, ongoing horror series called WYTCHES. Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying.  

WYTCHES takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before. “I like taking classic monsters and reimagining them in a fresh, contemporary, and much scarier way,” said Snyder.
 
Snyder and Jock have worked together previously on the Batman story “The Black Mirror” in the pages of Detective Comics and Snyder knew from the get-go that he wanted Jock on board. 
 
“It’s great to finally have Scott Snyder back at Image,” said Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “We loved working with Scott onSevered, and he has only gotten better since then, so it’s really wonderful that he’s teaming up with Jock on what is without a doubt one of the creepiest books we have ever published.”
 
WYTCHES is a new ongoing fantasy horror series coming to Image Comics in 2014. You’ve been warned.

Batman. Superman. Wonder Woman. The Flash. Nightwing.

Who else?

While we still wait for Warner Bros. to announce the title to the follow-up to the Man of Steel, even more speculation arises in the form of art from superstar artist Jock.

Jock took to his Instagram account to post the following image/teaser.

Guess we might have to add Batgirl to the list…

October 7th, 2013, Mt. Laurel, NJ – New York Comic-Con Announcement:  Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the upcoming 2014 release of The Art of Jock, a hardcover retrospective celebrating the entire career of talented British illustrator, Jock (Hellblazer: Pandemonium, Savage Wolverine).  The latest in Dynamite’s line of bestselling art books honoring such notables as Alex Ross, Sean Phillips, and Howard Chaykin (to name a few), The Art of Jock will include hundreds of gorgeous illustrations from his years as an artist for comic books, film, and more.

“When Nick at Dynamite approached me with the idea of publishing an art book, I felt honoured to be given the chance to put together the first comprehensive look at the work of my career so far,” says Jock.  “It will include drawings and paintings from all of my comics projects from over the last ten years, including many sketches and unseen material, plus concept art and extensive promotional images from the various movies and posters I’ve worked on. 
The quality of the books I’ve seen from Dynamite has been second-to-none, so I’m thrilled to have a home there for this retrospective.”[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11567:]]

Jock is the award-winning British artist renowned for his edgy and dynamic style and gritty design aesthetic.  He leapt to fame with his work on Judge Dredd for 2000AD, before collaborating with then-editor Andy Diggle on the futuristic crime caper Lenny Zero.  This swiftly led to Jock being voted Best Newcomer at the National Comics Awards in 2001.  In the decade since then, Jock has provided commercial art and graphic design for numerous internationally renowned clients including Pontiac, Sony, British Airways, Saatchi & Saatchi, Nintendo, Criterion, the NBA and the BBC.  He has worked for every major Hollywood studio including Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros., and Sony Pictures, producing key art, concept design, and promotional imagery for Batman Begins, Hancock, Children of Men, Hanna, and Iron Man 3, as well as the big-screen adaptations of Dune,Dredd, and Battleship.  He created in-game artwork for Army of Two: The 40th Day for EA Games, as well as cover art for Ubisoft’s popular Driver franchise.[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11568:]]

In comics, Jock is best known for co-creating the New York Times bestselling graphic novel series The Losers with Andy Diggle.  His character designs were followed closely in the feature film adaptation, and his original art was integrated into on-screen transitions and the animated credits sequence.  Jock’s promotional poster for The Losers was voted one of the Top 10 movie posters of 2010 by MTV.  Previous work includes the original graphic novel Hellblazer: Pandemonium for DC Comics/Vertigo.  His stunning covers for numerous titles including X-Men, Daredevil, andScalped led to his being nominated as Best Cover Artist at the Eisner Awards.  Jock and writer Scott Snyder recently won the Stan Lee Award for Best Series for their work on Batman: The Black Mirror.  He is currently working with actor and comedian Peter Serafinowicz on an original comic-book project, continuing to produce officially licensed screen prints for boutique poster company Mondo, and writing and drawing his first miniseries for Marvel Comics, Savage Wolverine.  Born in Glasgow, Scotland, he now lives and works in Devon.[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11569:]]

Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite, says, “Jock is a modern legend, one of the most highly sought-after comic book artists of his — or any — generation.  His design sense trembles the very walls of human perception; it challenges us to shake off the societal programming that comic art is mere commercial art, and raises it to a higher level and standard.  We are damn proud to welcome Jock as the latest addition to our line of high-end art books.”

The Art of Jock will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in 2014.  Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Art of Jock with their local comic book shop or hobby specialty store.

Jock Writing & Drawing Futuristic Cosmic Wolverine Tale

The popular artist Jock will be writing and drawing a new arc for Savage Wolverine which is described as a futuristic sci-fi tale.

Starting with September’s issue #9, Jock will put Wolverine in “the far-flung future” for three issues where the mutie has crash-landed on an alien planet and must adapt to the environment.

“Logan has the power of regeneration as we know, but he’d only ever be able to regenerate his own cells,” Jock explained to USA Today. “So what if thousands, maybe even millions of years in the future, the world around him has continued to evolve, and he’s left literally, a Neanderthal man?

“He always chose to be the outsider, but now he has no choice. He doesn’t fit in,” Jock said.

It’s stated that Wolverine will be dealing with the weird world he has found himself in as well as the alien beasts living there.

Jock wants to take Wolverine back to his roots with the story.

“I wanted to show Wolverine at his most primitive and basic, and get to what makes him tick. He’s a constant, while the world around him changes,”  Jock said.

“Stay tuned fir MY pics. In my younger days, I’d have punched several holes in the walls of my office by now. Rest assured, I will give you terror when I draw him.” – Greg Capullo on Twitter
