After Being Blacklisted By Marvel Comics, Joe Bennett Joins Arkhaven Comics
Former Marvel Comics and Immortal Hulk artist Joe Bennett will be providing art duties for two upcoming Arkhaven Comics projects after he was blacklisted by Marvel Comics.
It was reported that Marvel Comics blacklisted the artist earlier in September with Games Radar noting that a Marvel spokesman told them that Bennett would not be working on “any future Marvel projects” and that he had been relieved of his duties for the upcoming Timeless #1.
Marvel’s blacklisting of Bennett came after Immortal Hulk writer Al Ewing announced he would no longer be working with Bennett after a 2017 political cartoon supporting Brazilian politician and current president Jair Bolsonaro, created by Bennett, began making the rounds on social media.
In a press release, Arkhaven Comics notes they “did not hesitate to take advantage of Bennett’s unexpected availability, and promptly signed the former DC and Marvel illustrator as its lead artist on two series being written by legendary comics writer Chuck Dixon.”
