Matt Idelson talks CODENAME: PATRIOT

A rare non-rainy day and I find myself trapped indoors with Wil Moss, putting the finishing touches on SUPERMAN #691, the fourth and final chapter of our latest Superman crossover, “Codename: Patriot”. While Wil goes over some dialogue tweaks involving the not-so-nice General Lane with James Robinson, I’m going over David Curiel’s colors. We’re asking a lot of David on this one, and so far, he’s been more than up to the challenge.

End the day with a look at SUPERMAN/BATMAN #62

Up-and-coming artist Rafael Albuquerque joins the ongoing writing team of Michael Green and Mike Johnson for a tale of the World's Finest duo -- Robin and Supergirl. When the inmates take over at Arkham, can anyone but the Boy Wonder and the Maid of Might put things right? Check out a few pages below to see.

SUPERMAN/BATMAN #62 hits 7/15.

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!

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.

It's time to CRY FOR JUSTICE

Batman and Martian Manhunter are gone. But these aren't the first heroes to fall prey to the villains populating the DCU. And, not surprisingly, some heroes are tired of reacting, and instead want to take the battle to the bad guys themselves. The new team of Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Atom, Shazam, Congorilla and Starman unite in JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE, a six-issue mini-series from writer James Robinson and rising star artist Mauro Cascioli.

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...

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.

Some Supergirl art to close out the day

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.
