As previously thought, we now have confirmation on Jim Starlin's ongoing DC Comics book and it's the cosmic-centric Stormwatch.

Starlin has been releasing all sorts of teaser images, and now DC Comics has officially let it be known that Jim is on the book, and we also learn that Yvel Guichet is the artist.

DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras and Editorial Director Bobbie Chase let the news be known with info that Starlin will be taking Stormwatch in a different direction come April.

Via CBR:

Going back to announcements, one of the huge things, and something that Jim Starlin has been teasing a little bit on his own, is the fact that he's going to be writing "Stormwatch." How did that move come about?

Harras: Jim has been talking to us for a while now about doing various projects and pitching some ideas. He and Dan had been speaking, and he had been sending some ideas to Bobbie and me. Again, one of the things in the creative process, as you talk and discuss various things and -- my term for the day! -- the creative churn, some of the things Jim was coming up with, we thought might actually be interesting to put on "Stormwatch" and change the direction of that book. So it came out of, again, an ongoing conversation.

Chase: I was a natural progression coming out of another project, as Bob said. It was such a good fit.

When you say "Jim Starlin," most people think of his cosmic, sci-fi work. Was this part of why you wanted to pair him with "Stormwatch?"

Harras: Definitely! I mean, exactly! That was one of those moments where Bobbie and I looked at each other and said, "It's staring us in the face!" [Laughter]

Chase: There were several things that were appealing about bringing Jim on, and [artist] Yvel Guichet on the art, as well. There's just going to be some great stuff on the project.
