DCU IN 2010: MARC GUGGENHEIM STEPS IN AS WRITER ON ACTION COMICS
Thu, 12/10/2009 - 10:00am
If you’ve been paying attention to this blog at all over the last week, you’ve probably figured out that 2010 is gonna be a big year for the Man of Steel. THE WAR OF THE SUPERMEN will kick off on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY and that’s only the opening silo in an epic battle that will change Superman’s status quo.
Part of the sea change hitting the SUPERMAN titles begins next summer, as ACTION COMICS welcomes writer Marc Guggenheim as the new, regular writer. Guggenheim, as most of you know, has a slew of television and film credits, not to mention work on comics, including FLASH. But what’s his take on Superman going to be like? Well, don’t ask us. Ask Marc:
"One of my earliest memories was reading -- not even reading, just looking at the pictures, actually, as I was too young to read --
Action Comics. It's an enormous thrill and a humbling thing to write a comic you literally grew up reading. When D.C. called, I understood how President Obama must have felt when the Nobel Committee called him. Now I just have to work hard not to screw it up."
Sounds ominous – but when things are heading toward a WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, it’s not going to be rainbows and candy, is it?
For some more teases and clues on Guggenheim’s run, head on over to MTV’s SPLASH PAGE blog. And stay tuned to The Source. Believe me when I say there are more amazing announcements hitting in the next few days.
