After the Busiek and Johns 8 part run who will take over?

Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco

That's who!


See Mr. Busiek, that's what happens when you start posting here, you get typecast, now you can't stop writing Superman comics.  Cheesy

The fact that Superman is going to be written by Kurt Busiek as an ongoing is great news. For one thing, it means that he can do one thing that he does well, which is create multiple story threads and "microplots" that over the course of the run are resolved, giving a payoff to someone that reads all of the run. Englehart too, was good at this technique, as was Paul Levitz.

Even more exciting is the hiring of the always classy Carlos Pacheco, whose mindblowing science fiction art in ARROWSMITH was what made that book extraordinary. Like all great artists, he is shown to visibly improve over time; I cannot believe that the same guy that did ARROWSMITH also did the far less polished AVENGERS/SQUADRON SUPREME ANNUAL '98.

I'm happy.
Thank you DC.

One and only problem: Pacheco will need a replacement often, sigh.

Talking about his upcoming run on Superman,
Quote from: "Kurt Busiek"
New villains. Returning villains. A new role for Lana Lang. Pericles Hazard. Camelot Falls. Outer space. Paragon. New realms to conquer for a certain bald-headed master criminal. Friends from the past, menaces buried for decades, catalysts in the present from decades ago. Jimmy Olsen's Blues. Krypto. The problem of Smallville. The Science Police. The Galactic Golem. The strangest object in the universe. When he was a boy. A day that may or may not ever happen. Pete Ross's post-White House career. Time-traveling tourists and gorilla underclassmen. The bubble city of Metropolis. The Envoy. Maxima. Amalak. The secrets of Lexcorp. Subjekt-17. A shattered Earth. Two new Metropolis-based heroes, for very different reasons. Brainiac. Khyber. Omni-fi. Superman's true home. Romance, action, mystery, suspense, science fiction, sorcery, and a pie in the face.

And when asked to identify his favorite elements of the Superman mythos,
Quote from: "Kurt Busiek"
My single favorite element of the Superman mythos is Superman's indomitable spirit.  That, and the imaginative sense to Superman's world that says that nothing, but nothing is impossible, and leads to gigantic stories of galactic, operatic scope and small-scale personal stories that get at the very human hearts within these characters.

Either that, or it's Vartox. I'm never sure.

I am very happy and can't wait to read this title!  Kurt, you've got my support and my thanks.

S!
