7 Reasons Why SUPERMAN Will Be Single
Pérez, a comic book industry veteran, had been doing Superman double-duty, both writing the book and handling breakdowns and covers. Jesus Merino provided finished art. Superman #1 debuted in comic shops this week. This is the second of DC's The New 52 titles that Giffen has taken over as writer. Last week, he was announced as replacing J.T. Krul on Green Arrow as of December's #4, a book which also includes Pérez and Jurgens on the creative team. This is the third DC New 52 writing change as of this point — earlier this month, John Rozum stepped down as co-writer of Static Shock. DC Comics declined comment Friday afternoon. Got a comment?
