I was really hoping to get to go to New York Comic-Con this year, but unfortunately time and money did not permit. Thankfully I have the next best thing, the internet! While the convention doesn’t actually start tomorrow, news from publishers has been rolling at everyday this week. Today, DC dropped a major reveal in the form of the creative team replacing Grant Morrison and Rags Morales on Action Comics. While it has long been rumored, DC confirmed today that writer Andy Diggle and artist Tony Daniel will be taking over the series with issue #18, which should be out in March. Here’s a look at the cover for the team’s first issue:
This is striking cover for a number of reasons, but the most eye-catching is Supe’s new suit. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this suit, those who picked up Scott Lobdell’s début on Superman #0 will recognize it from that issue’s tantalizing ending. It looks like there are some major things brewing behind the scenes in the Superman family of books. With the rumor of a Man of Steel series from Scott Snyder and Jim Lee to be announced at NYCC, is it possible we could be heading towards a Superman heyday not seen since the 90’s? Superman had a rocky start at the beginning of the New 52, but things are starting to look up (up, and away!) for the most iconic super hero of all time.
Check back all this week as I talk about more of the major announcements coming out of New York.
