Greg Pak Takes Over ACTION COMICS

The writer of PLANET HULK lands an amazing opportunity.

The creative future of ACTION COMICS seemed uncertain after writer Andy Diggle decided to leave the book, but it's now confirmed Greg Pak will take over the classic title! He'll join forces with artist Aaron Kuder on issue #25 this November. Speaking with with USA Today, Pak says the opportunity is "one of those things you dream about idly, imagining the craziest thing that could ever happen to you in your comics career."

Additionally, he shed a little light on what he has in store for Clark's book. "The book is called Action. So we want to have big action. And it's Superman! Superman's gotta do crazy, huge things," says the writer. "At the same time, every step of the way in order for me to care and you to care, whatever Superman is going through has to resonate on that emotional level."

BATMAN/SUPERMAN #1

And in case you somehow missed the news, Greg Pak is also behind DC's upcoming series SUPERMAN/BATMAN and the first issue will land this Wednesday. What do you think, Viners? Is Superman in good hands? Speak your mind below.

Now this is interesting. Dammit I may not be dropping Action Comics after all

Edited by goodmoviesbad

I just read about this on Good Movies Bad Movies.

I have to say that Katzman will probably do an amazing job and I'm really excited about Batman / Superman.

Yay 4 pak no 4 kuder prefer cully hamner or tyler kirkham

Posted by xxxddd

Yeah...I'm going broke at the comic shop.

Posted by Kerrigan

Happy about this! Love Pak's work, and Action should be DC's flagship.

Lobdell just doesn't cut it on the marque titles.

Posted by sinestro_GL

Good news so far.

I'll evaluate after a couple issues in...maybe Action Comics can be more than just decent for once.

Posted by dondave

Awesome, He was incredible on Hulk so I have high hopes for him on Action Comics

Posted by Spovey

Not even wasting my money on this until #25, glad I don't have to drop action comics for too long though!

Posted by ThanosIsMad

Who's his artist? He needs a good artist work with him. And the book needs to move to the present!

Posted by SmashBrawler

DC will probably somehow piss him off and he'll leave the book before his first issue is out :D

Knock on wood.

Don't say that. Don't even, like, put that in the ether.

Action Comics, why do we have such a rollercoaster relationship the past few months? Well, its all uphill again starting in November

Posted by Cavemold

Very intrigued . Yes bring on the action in action comics. Lots of it

Aaron Kuder like it says on the article.

It's not that bad (although i'll admit his art style does work better on the "dark and gritty" characters better than the "lighter" ones)!

Didn't the abandoned that when they made the new 52? You can't have your cake and eat it too.

The man who wrote the all action Planet Hulk is taking over Superman, cannot wait.

Please DC, do not make Pak leave like Diggle

Sorry, the jokes write themselves at this point. Like Zod and neck-braces.

Cool, big time opportunity for Kuder. Hopefully this team restores Action to where it belongs...#2 right behind Detective.

Detective needs a lot of work to make it number one...
