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.
As Wednesday comes to a close, it's a good time to pop in and see what's happening on the Superman side of the DCU, specifically, SUPERGIRL, where the creative team of writer Sterling Gates and artist Jamal Igle continue to redefine the Maid of Might. Easy for me to say, sure, but the cover to July's #43 and a few pencils from #41 should help convince any doubters as well. The pencils, by guest artist Fernando Dagnino, are pretty snazzy, to say the least.
