OH MY GOD!!!
Please tell me this is an incredibley late April Fools joke?
On the plus side. I might now get to see one of my favorite artists drawing one of my favorite characters - Harley Quinn.
Shame to see him leave Marvel, this'll be a HUGE loss for them, but I wish him all the best at DC.
Noooo!!! OMG! I really wish he would stay. He is an amazing artist!!!
This is a change of Jedi-Sith like proportions!
Seriosuly, I wish him the best! He's been with Marvel for 20 years....it's understandable that he would want to try new things.
It's not like he said, "Screw Marvel, I'm never coming back", or anything like that.
Sweet, we now get to see his take on DC characters, i liked what he did with Batman now we can see him do Superman etc
I'd leave too. How annoying would it be to draw 22 pages of "reaction shots" every month?
being discussed in this thread as well
I hope he gets a regular Batman ongoing.
Batman looked amazing in that 'Spider-Man/Batman' crossover from the mid 90's. And I loved how he drew Joker's maniacal long drawn open-mouth grin too.
I never cared for DC except for Batman (when it's good), Watchmen and the Vertigo line. But this might be interesting just to see his take on new characters. Besides, it's not like I've picked up an Ultimate Spider-Man issue since like #10 or something.
Wow. This is unexpected. I never thought Bagley would do this especially with his long career with Marvel. But I guess he was ready for change. If he gets to work on a title like Batman then I might be interested.
How about a Bagley Justice League?
I have to admit that I'm not a big Bagley fan. I was surprised how long he's been at Marvel, and how many titles I forgot he was the artist on ( the original New Warriors!) Good, steady (second only to JRJR in that category maybe) competent work , but I wouldn't buy a title based solely on his art. That being said, it's a big loss for marvel (maybe they can trade, and we could get Perez back?? Or how about Bendis for Winnick. Judd seems to have worn out his welcome over there. And there's plenty of characters that he could make gay over here!)
its a shame really...
andi pray to god that he draws batman confidential for two years or so and then comes back to the pages of USM...
usually, god listens when i talk to him...
on the other hand...
Well, all the best to him.
Oh yeah, isn't Bagley's going to do the 3rd annual for USM?
Hey, I would love to see some of Bagley's work on some of the DC characters, good for him, he did a good Batman and Joker. Batman/Spider-Man #1. . I probably know why he's leaving though...hates what is going on with Marvel right now so he's going BETTER comics.
Oh you know it's true, don't lie! t:
I would like to see Bagely do Justice League to, that would be cool.
I'm very sorry. He's a great artist.
This was a surprising announcement, but at thes ame time, it's understandable that he wants to spread his drawing chops drawing other characters other then the MU. Hopefully he'll get to work on some stuff that I might want to look at on the other side (here's hoping JL)
aw, terrible news..
hopefully DC lets him work on teen titans.
Wow, huge news. I thought Bagley would never leave Marvel. I was actually wondering a few weeks ago if Bagley would work well on any of the titles over at DC. I'm actually kind of excited to see where they put him at DC. I'm hoping he's doing Batman or Detective Comics. He and Paul Dini would be a nice fit together on Detective.
Or possibly The Flash would be another good book for him.
Who knows. I'm definitely interested to see where they put him. Don't waste him, DC!!!
