I think he signed with DC at the same time as Loeb, so I guess it's up in the air for now. I haven't heard any projects announced with his name on it, so I guess I'll find out once WW: Boston comes around when I can ask him.
Does anyone know if Tim Sale is exclusive with DC?
Cuz if he is not, Marvel should totally snatch him up to partner with Jeph Loeb.
I can see it now...Capt. America: Red/White/ and Blue.
Yeah, I e-mailed him about this recently.
He's exclusive still.
Huh. I wonder what he'll be working now that Loeb is with Marvel - I mean, how long has it been since Sale's done a book without Loeb?Originally Posted by Mike Haseloff
I saw that he's doing covers for one of the satellite Bat-Books (Batgirl or Robin or something, I can't remember) and though he's said he really enjoys doing covers, I wouldn't think that'd be enough to keep him occupied. How long does his exclusive contract last?
Incidentally, Sale and Loeb had been planning a Captain America: White series that got shelved when they went to DC two years ago - Sale mentions it in Time Sale: Black and White*. I wonder if that will be back on the table now that Loeb, at least, is back at Marvel.
*This is a fantastic book, by the way - an incredibly thorough career retrospective that has Sale giving frank and honest commentary on his own work and others' and even gets into somewhat esoteric things like Sale's side of Frank Miller calling him out on "swiping" his Sin City art style - a must have for any Sale fan).
I want Captain America: Red.
DC should totally try to extend his exclusive. That would be so funny if Marvel got Loeb, but DC kept the guy who seems to make Loeb good.
Join the Prime-Punch revolution!
Buy The Gathering!
I hope DC keeps Sale, too, because I HATE Loeb/Sale's Marvel work. In fact, I pretty much dislike any non-Long Halloween type Loeb book. I think there should be a law that he's only allowed to do those sorts of books.Originally Posted by Raydawggie
The Tim Sale Message Board if any fans want to discuss this stuff somewhere that Tim actually posts. He's very personable.
Oh, and a great artist, too:
He makes sketchbooks that much cooler with his presense...
