For the last 75 years, the story of Superman has been carefully crafted by hundreds of writers and artists, each making their own contribution to this iconic character’s rich history. Starting this Wednesday in the pages of the all new series BATMAN/SUPERMAN, it will be writer Greg Pak’s turn to add to the legend of Krypton’s last son.
Greg Pak recently spoke with USA Today’s Brian Truitt about teaming with the incredible Jae Lee on the new BATMAN/SUPERMAN series as well as taking over the writing duties on the iconic ACTION COMICS in November which first unveiled the Man of Steel all the way back in 1938.
"They're figuring out what it is they're doing, who they are and what kind of methods they're going to use," Pak told USA Today. "They're testing their ethical limits and boundaries, and it's just a huge opportunity for great drama and conflict. That whole package is a blast."
Pak went on to discuss the personal passion he plans to bring to the character when he takes over ACTION COMICS with issue #25 with artist Aaron Kuder.
"The book is called Action. So we want to have big action. And it's Superman!...Basically, I've fallen in love with this character all over again," Pak said. "In fact, the first comic book I ever drew as a kid was a Superman thing. I was doing Superman fan fiction when I was 6 years old.
"For young children, Superman is your first introduction to superheroes and you love him. But as I've gotten older, I realized how resonant the whole story of Superman is and how his struggles actually reverberate with people at every age."
BATMAN/SUPERMAN lands in stores on Wednesday and ACTION COMICS #25 is due out this November.
