Marvel Comics announced today that they have entered into an exclusive agreement with Canadian writer and illustrator Chip Zdarsky.
Zdarsky has been putting out some great writing lately with Marvel Comics, with current runs on both Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man and Marvel 2-in-One.
As soon as I heard this I became very worried about the future of Sex Criminals, which Zdarsky illustrates, as it is one of my favourite ongoing series but from a different publisher. But according to Chip’s twitter, the new agreement doesn’t exclude him from continuing his work on Sex Criminals.
Just so everyone knows, this exclusive does NOT mean that we're stopping SEX CRIMINALS! Just finished drawing issue 24! Even though I'm exclusive for writing superheroes I AM STILL A SEXUAL BEING WHO DRAWS

From this tweet we’re still a bit unsure if the agreement only refers to writing, or superhero books… or maybe just writing superhero books?
