Upcoming Stuff of Interest - Action Comics #841

ACTION COMICS #841
Written by Kurt Busiek & Fabian Nicieza
Art by Pete Woods
Cover by Dave Gibbons

An event trilogy guest-starring half the DCU kicks off in an issue featuring a stunning cover by Dave Gibbons (WATCHMEN)! Superman is back - but is it really him? As Earth faces a powerful new menace, Superman contends with heroes wary that he might not be who he says he is. Guest-starring the Teen Titans, Nightwing and Firestorm!
On sale July 12 - 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US

Just wanted to say I really like this Dave Gibbons image (though not so much the whole cover in the link above). I'm not going to pick up this book, although I'm still considering getting the Busiek/Pacheco SUPERMAN that also begins in July. It sounds like Busiek wants to do something in the vein of the Schwartz-edited era that I grew up on.

But man, does Gibbons drawing Superman ever look nice...

    Gibbons definitely needs to be doing some more art. His writing is okay (though the Originals didn't really thrill me), but there's no one doing a super-hero book at DC or Marvel right now who draws super-heroes as well as him.
