NEWS: Andy Kubert Joins ‘Action Comics’ in January

DC Comics announced today in the New York Post that Flashpoint artist, Andy Kubert, will be  joining Grant Morrison on Action Comics in January.

Kubert will join the book for a two issue arc that spans issues #5 and #6. Regular series artist Rags Morales will resume his duties following Kubert’s short stint.

Here’s what Kubert had to say about the opportunity in DC’s Source blog:

“When Editor Matt Idelson asked if I would be interested and/or able to fit into my schedule two upcoming issues of Action Comics with Grant, I couldn’t say no. I don’t know of any other artist that would have. Drawing the latest incarnation of Superman and working with one of the best writers on the planet made it a very easy decision for me. And in this story, I get to do some VERY iconic stuff! I gotta admit, I’m a little nervous… Fun Fact for those keeping score: I had never drawn Superman in a comics interior for an entire issue. I had done inking over Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for an issue each over their beautiful pencils way (and I mean WAY) back when but this is my first opportunity to pencil the Man of Steel interior pages for my very own!” – Andy Kubert
