Gabriel Rodriguez Signs Exclusive Deal with IDW

Exclusivity deals are back! After a few years where all sorts of creators have been shedding the golden handcuffs – from John Romita Jr to Gail Simone – it appears as though companies have started rebuilding somewhat. And this weekend IDW announced their first ever exclusive contract, with artist Gabriel Rodriguez, best known for Locke & Key.

Rodriguez has long been one of IDW’s most admired creators, not least by IDW editor-in-chief Chris Ryall, who refused to allow any fill-in artists to work on Locke & Key – insisting that the story be told wholly by Rodriguez and writer Joe Hill.

With that series ending, Rodriguez’s next work with the company will be a take on Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland, with writer Eric Shanower.
