Over the past five years, the number of exclusive creators signing with either DC Comics or Marvel has increased exponentially. Practically at every comics convention held across the country at least one exclusive ends up announced, with Peter David‘s announcement two weeks back at WonderCon being one of the most recent. And we’ll probably hear an exclusive announcement or two at this upcoming weekend’s New York Comic-Con. At times the sheer volume of exclusive announcements can take on an almost comedic tone, but the exclusive announcement we’re talking about right now is a very serious one indeed: Keith Giffen & J.M. DeMatteis are taking the Bwah-Ha-Ha exclusively to Boom! Studios.
