THE CCXP , after the announcement of John Romita Jr. at the event, now confirms the names of Frank Quitely, Eduardo Risso and Lee Bermejo at the Artists’ Alley.
Lee Bermejo, on his first visit to Brazil, will make his debut at the festival. The illustrator was responsible for several comics from the Batman universe and worked on several graphic novels alongside the screenwriter Brian Azzarello, among them the recently launched Batman: Damned. As a solo artist, Bermejo scripted and illustrated Batman: Noel and Suiciders, in addition to designing several covers for A.D, Marvel and Dark Horse.

Frank Quitely is well known in the world of comics, having written and illustrated his first stories in the late 1980s. Electric Soup, launched on the underground scene, became part of the magazine Judge Dredd, sold throughout the United Kingdom.

Together with Mark Millar, the artist was responsible for the work The Legacy of Jupiter, which will win a series for Netflix.
