David Finch is a Canadian-born comic book artist known for his work on Top Cow Productions' Cyberforce, as well as numerous subsequent books for Marvel Comics and DC Comics, such as New Avengers, Moon Knight, Ultimatum and Brightest Day.[1]

He has also provided album cover art for the band Disturbed, and done concept art for films such as Watchmen.[1]

Career[edit]

David Finch started his career with a lengthy stint on Top Cow Productions' Cyberforce, after series creator and studio founder Marc Silvestri ceased his run as writer/artist on that book.

Finch went on to co-create Ascension with Matt "Batt" Banning. He would later work on the first three issues of Aphrodite IX with David Wohl.

In 2003, Finch returned to comics for a year-long arc on Ultimate X-Men with writer Brian Michael Bendis. Following that stint, the duo moved on to Avengers, where they destroyed Marvel's premiere superhero team only to relaunch it as The New Avengers featuring a radically different cast.

Finch has also worked on the revamped Moon Knight series together with novelist Charlie Huston. After leaving the series, he illustrated Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America #4, featuring Spider-Man. This was followed by the crossover event "Ultimatum" for the Ultimate Marvel Line. In addition to comic interior work, he has drawn several covers, including those of World War Hulk, X-Men #200 and the X-Men: Messiah Complex crossover and the cover art for the X-Infernus miniseries.

In addition, outside of comics, Finch has worked on the band Disturbed's recent album's cover, Indestructible, as well as doing concept design for the film adaptation of Alan Moore´s Watchmen.

In 2009, Finch was awarded the Joe Shuster Award for Outstanding Artist.[2]

It was announced in January, 2010 that Finch had left Marvel and would become a DC exclusive artist.[3] In July, 2010 DC announced that Finch would be writing and drawing a new ongoing series entitled Batman: The Dark Knight, the first story arc of which deals with the detective's more supernatural cases.[4][5]
