New York, NY (February 24, 2015) – Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce the exclusive agreement with incoming Old Man Logan artist, Andrea Sorrentino.

“I’m very, very excited about this new chapter of my career,” says Andrea Sorrentino of his exclusive agreement. “I’ve always been a huge fan of Marvel characters and I’m thrilled at what is coming in the next couple years now that I’ve joined the family full-time.”

Following critically acclaimed runs at DC Comics, Sorrentino made a splash in late 2014 with his Marvel debut, providing art for the Uncanny X-Men Annual and All-New X-Men Annual. This May, he will launch his first series for Marvel, re-teaming with superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis for the debut of OLD MAN LOGAN #1.

“Working with Andrea Sorrentino is an editor’s dream,” says Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts. “Not only is he a consummate professional, meeting every crazy deadline we throw at him—he’s also at the top of his game artistically. I have rarely seen an artist approach each page with the same rabid enthusiasm that Andrea does. He’s continually experimenting and challenging himself to find new ways to tell the story. I’m looking forward to many long years of collaboration with him!”
