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.

Celebrate Friday with a SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #3 preview

Superman's been drafted into New Krypton's Military Guild, so it's starting to look like General Zod might have finally put the Man of Steel under his control. But when an order comes down commanding Kal to commit an act of brutality, Superman has to choose between his duty and what's right. Click below for some pages from the issue, featuring a snazzy Howard Chaykin variant.

SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #2 hits on 5/6.

A day in the life of SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson

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.
