Ah, dawn in the city. I start going through emails. Renato Guedes has sent us pencils for pages 9-10 of SUPERMAN #688. Wow, these are gorgeous! Renato has been nice enough to draw this critical scene first, as we’ll be flashing back to it in SUPERMAN ANNUAL #14 a couple of months later. Some more gorgeous pencils are in from guest-penciller Fernando Dagnino for SUPERGIRL #41—man, he’s SO good. Looking at our schedule, however, I’m thinking it might be more logical to ask Fernando to draw the upcoming SUPERGIRL ANNUAL rather than ACTION #878-879.
With Geoff Johns moving on from his long tenure as writer of JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA with the 26th issue of the current series, I'm sure many of you are wondering just what is in store for the world's first super-team. Well, for starters, we have writer/artist Jerry Ordway stepping in for a stint, to be followed by the new regular creative team of writers Bill Willingham and Matt Sturges and artist Jesus Merino.
By now, you've seen preview pages for this issue at NEWSARAMA and IGN, both showing off the stylish artistry of Philip Tan (working with Geoff Johns, natch). But in our continued efforts to be reader-friendly, we've re-posted both previews here, along with an extra page and some prelim pencils from Tan. NEWSARAMA also posted some pencils from the issue on Friday. GREEN LANTERN #39 -- the gift that keeps on giving. The issue hits stores tomorrow.
