DC Comics announces relaunch of Action Comics, Superman
DC Comics is relaunching the book that introduced Superman back in 1938.
Grant Morrison and Rags Morales create the renumbered “Action Comics” #1, a new issue that, according to DC, “will set in motion the history of the DC Universe as Superman defends a world that doesn’t trust their first Super Hero.”
George Perez writes the relaunched “Superman” #1, which will be illustrated by Jesus Merinao.
“What is Superman’s startling new status quo? How does it affect his friends, loved ones and his job at The Daily Planet?” DC asks in describing the series.
Two other characters with Superman ties will also be relaunched: Supergirl and Superboy.
“Supergirl” #1 is by writers Michael Green and Mike Johnson (“Smallville”) with art by Mahmud Asrar.
“Supergirl’s got the unpredictable behavior of a teenager, the same powers as Superman and none of his affection for the people of Earth,” is how DC describes its “new take on the teenager from Krypton.”
“Superboy” #1 will be written by Scott Lobdell with art by R.B. Silva and Rob Lean. DC’s description: “They thought he was just a failed experiment, grown from a combination of Kryptonian and human DNA. But when the scope of his stunning powers was revealed, he became a deadly weapon.”
