Marvel welcomed artist Andrea Sorrentino to the Bendis-verse with Uncanny X-Men Annual #1. The penciller is continuing his work with author Brian Michael Bendis and Marvel with the upcoming All-New X-Men #38 and his exclusive Marvel contract. The comic is the fourth entry into the Black Vortex crossover with the X-Men and the Guardians of the Galaxy characters. Comics Beat recently covered the announcement that saw Sorrentino move with Bendis on the upcoming Old Man Logan #1 launching in May which takes place during Secret Wars.
“I’m very, very excited about this new chapter of my career,” said Sorrentino. “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.”
The artist first dazzled the critics during the Big Two with I Vampire alongside author Joshua Hail Fialkov, turning the comic into a fan favorite New 52 launch title. He once again delighted the press with his run on Green Arrow with Jeff Lemire. CBR ran the press release and announced the news this afternoon.
