They’re breaking up the band: Lark leaves ‘Gotham Central’

One of the most perfect unions of tone and style in the comic book form is no more, as Michael Lark is leaving Gotham Central and DC Comics for an exclusive two year contract with Marvel Comics.

Lark’s gritty, realistic style was a perfect match for the urban crime drama penned by Greg Rucka and Ed Brubaker.

This is sad news. Gotham Central is one of my favorite books, featuring one of the strongest pairings of writers and artist in the business. Yes, there have been fill-in artists here and there but ultimately, the look and feel of the book came down to Michael Lark. Hopefully they will find a suitable replacement.
