Siglain on DETECTIVE COMICS, OUTSIDERS

Greetings, Source-erers, Michael Siglain here. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m one of the editors here at DC. More specifically, I’m one of the Bat-editors, and am currently responsible for Detective Comics, Outsiders, Batgirl, Vigilante and Booster Gold, among other comic book greatness. I’m here today to give you a peek behind the editorial iron curtain, so get ready to feast your eyes...

A day in the life of SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson

Ooh, look! Sun! I’d forgotten what that looks like. Neat. Today is a bit of a mad scramble (what else is new?). We’re wrapping up the lettering on ACTION COMICS #879, which means a lot of emailing back and forth with letterer Rob Leigh. He’s come up with what I think will be a stronger method for the English subtitles to all the crazy Kryptonian speak going on in the book. And if this doesn’t work, we’ll just start throwing sound chips in the book!

Take a look at the ACTION COMICS ANNUAL

Curious about the origin of Nightwing and Flamebird? Well, you came to the right place. We've got a nice chunk of pages from ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #12, from writer Greg Rucka and artist Pere Pérez, featuring a lovely cover by Renato Guedes. N and F are busy rooting out Zod's sleeper agents in the present, but how did they find out about them in the first place? What's their beef with Zod? How'd they get together? And what's their link to the original Nightwing and Flamebird? Well, you know the drill.

Renato Guedes tackles covers for ACTION, SUPERMAN and SUPERGIRL annuals

You may have noticed a trend here at The Source. We like to show cool art once it appears in our inbox. SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson and his assistant Wil Moss, coincidentally, like to forward us cool art. It works out nicely. So, to close out this Monday, we've got three covers from SUPERMAN artist Renato Guedes. The covers, for ACTION COMICS ANNUAL, SUPERMAN ANNUAL and SUPERGIRL form a loose triptych image. What's better than a Guedes image? Well, three.

Just another day for the SUPERMAN Group Editor

Hey folks! As usual, we have our regular “From the Editors” post  coming your way. Being the diligent worker we all know and love, Matt Idelson  managed to give us his entry early, as he made his escape to the distant land  of Barcelona. Enjoy...

Julian Lopez takes over ACTION art duties

How about a little news with your coffee? This August -- ACTION COMICS #880, to be exact -- will see Julian Lopez (ORACLE: THE CURE, BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS) step in as the regular series artist, just in time for a crossover with the other Super-books. I could summarize the plot of said crossover, or hint at stuff, like Superman maybe returning to Earth, or New Krypton/Earth relations hitting an all-new low, but that'll just make you impatient for August, right? Not to fear. We have some sketches from Mr. Lopez to tide you over until then. [gallery link="file"]
