MICHAEL SHANNON TO STAR AS GENERAL ZOD IN “MAN OF STEEL”
FROM WARNER BROS. PICTURES AND LEGENDARY PICTURES
In January, ACTION COMICS #885 and SUPERMAN #696 will cross over as Nightwing and Flamebird’s hunt for Zod’s sleeper agents leads them right to Science Police Headquarters in Metropolis, home of the Guardian and Mon-El. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Eric Trautmann packed these two issues with so many twists and turns, we needed the covers to be as equally dynamic – and since the amazing CAFU regularly draws both covers, why not have the covers cross over as well? We cornered Superman Editor Matt Idelson's able assistant Wil Moss for more info. Take it away, Wil:
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.
