When it was first announced that Grant Morrison was leaving ACTION COMICS, the first name that came up in the fan wish list of writers to replace him was Scott Snyder. Snyder has been killing it month after month on BATMAN. Seeing his take on Superman would be something.
Soon a separate rumor surfaced that Snyder would be joined by Jim Lee on a new Superman title. That would be a dream project. And now, it seems the dream is coming true.
At the Superman panel today at New York Comic Con, it was revealed that the two would indeed be teaming up on a new Superman series.
This marks the first collaboration between Snyder and Lee. They plan on taking the character to new heights and force him to face off against foes familiar and new.
This is what Jim Lee had to say:
As a huge fan of Scott's writing, I'm looking forward to drawing Superman as much as I am reading Scott's story as it unfolds. Scott's crafted a truly epic yet personal story which will demonstrate without a doubt why Superman remains the most iconic hero of the modern age. 2013 is gonna absolutely rock!
Here's some words from Scott Snyder:
I've loved Superman since I was a kid, and to be working on him now, with the great Jim Lee, is simply too thrilling for words. It's a dream come true for me on every front. I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just say it's the Superman story I'd write if I only ever got one chance to write the character. It's an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like Court of Owls for Batman, it's a character piece for Clark - it's going to challenge him to his core. And it's definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama - the biggest and most earth shaking action I've ever done.
Somebody pinch me in case I'm dreaming.
