Superman by John Romita Jr

In news that was announced last week on DC Comics “All Access” webseries, we learned who the next creative team would be for Superman. Starting this Summer, DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns will be handling the writing, while on art will be long-time Marvel artist John Romita Jr.. Also on the book will be inker Klaus Janson, who has collaborated with Romita Jr. many times in the past.

This will mark one of the few times Romita Jr. has not worked for Marvel over his long and storied career and it will be his first work on a book solely published by DC. He did draw a Punisher/Batman crossover, as well as one of the titles in the Amalgam crossover, both of which were done in the 1990s.

As for Janson, he will not only be working with Romita Jr. on Superman, but will also be writing, drawing, and working on covers for other DC titles. Janson has worked for DC many times in the past, including the seminal Batman: The Dark Knight, among many others.

Johns, Romita Jr., and Janson will be taking over for the current Superman creative team of Scott Lobdell and Ed Benes. Lobdell has been on the series since October 2012, and he has had the longest run on any Superman series since the launch of DC’s New 52.

It’s good news for Superman fans who may have been waiting for a big creative team to add a spark to the character, and it will be exciting to see an artist of Romita Jr.’s caliber show his take on Superman. I’m guessing there will be tons of guest stars over the course of their run on the series so that Romita Jr. can draw a wide variety of DC heroes and villains.
