It's a bird, it's a plane...


OK, so this morning, DC announced that James Robinson will be writing Superman after Kurt Busiek leaves the book. They also released a cover image which, if you really want to know, is the great Alex Ross' cover to MY issue of Superman, which is being released in May after Busiek ends his run but before James begins his.

People that know me well know that I love no character more dearly than I do Superman. Getting to write the man o' steel is a serious career highlight for me and I hope that my love for the character shines through bright and strong.

Seeing as DC released the image, although in the wrong context, I would assume it's now safe to post the cover here. See that guy clutching his head in the lower left? My story is about THAT guy. Rick Leonardi kicked serious ass drawing it, too. Should be officially solicited in a just a few days.

This marks the FOURTH time I'll have an Alex Ross cover on books I've written. I must have blown somebody really important in a previous life.

I was wondering who would be writing that missing issue, and I'm glad to hear that it'll be yours. I'm normally not much of a Superman (I read Action, but that's about it), but I'll be sure to check this one out!
