Day Two of Comic-Con saw the official announcement of the worst-kept secret in comics: Filmmaker Richard Donner is joining Geoff Johns and Adam Kubert for a stint on DC’s Action Comics, beginning with October’s Issue 844.
The run is open-ended, Johns tells Newsarama.
“Dick’s sense of plotting and pacing are uncanny,” he says. “I watched him for years talking story and asking him questions and with this he’s constantly like — what’s the emotional core? What does this mean to the characters? Also, he’s not as familiar with continuity so it’s great to hear his initial reaction to characters we talk about using and what he thinks we can do with them.”
