Writer Scott Lobdell will be clearing a path for his boss, DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, to write the series as well, creating an all-star creative team that rivals or arguably exceeds the Scott Snyder/Jim Lee team on the outgoing Superman Unchained.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, fans can get a first look at Romita's Superman work. A five-page preview ran on the entertainment news magazine's website today, giving a look at not only Superman, but Romita's interpretations of Jimmy Olsen, Perry White and the Daily Planet newsroom, to which Clark Kent will apparently be returning after his brief stint as a self-employed blogger.
Check out the preview images and solicitation text below.
