Media Release — Marvel Entertainment is excited to announce that Aaron Kuder is exclusive to Marvel! Reflecting on bringing his talents to Marvel, Kuder exclaimed “I’m completely stoked to be working at the House of Ideas again. I grew up as a Marvel kid (no really, my 7th birthday wish: grow up to be Spider-Man. But don’t tell anyone. Otherwise it won’t come true.)”
Kuder’s first assignment is teaming up with comic superstars Charles Soule and Jeff Lemire for the highly anticipated 4-issue DEATH OF X series, beginning in October. Set after the events of Secret Wars, DEATH OF X chronicles the previously untold story of rising tensions between two of Marvel’s most iconic groups – and sets the stage for the blockbuster Inhumans vs. X-Men event later this year.
“Working on Death of X is a monster!” Kuder explains. “This is easily the largest cast of characters I’ve had to work with to date. All the Inhumans, all the X-Men…it’s a crazy amount to draw. All that grunt work is made better by the fact that Charles and Jeff are scribing it. Both these guys are amazing storytellers. It’s really an honor to be working with them.”
“I couldn’t be more ecstatic about Aaron coming to Marvel,” says Marvel Executive Editor Nick Lowe. “I’ve been trying to get him over to Marvel for a few years now, but when this momentous story came up I knew we needed an artist capable of bringing it to life, and Aaron hasn’t disappointed. In fact, he’s turning in the best work of his career!”
Fans can look forward to the first of Aaron’s first new interior work when DEATH OF X #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices in October. Be on the lookout for announcements of future projects featuring this rising comic superstar. Once again, we’re pleased to welcome Kuder’s unique and energetic style exclusively to the Marvel Universe.
