“I’m delighted to have signed exclusively to DC Comics. The work Pete, Matt, Wil and I are doing as a team on Action Comics has been tremendously satisfying, and I’m enjoying my other creative partnerships here just as much. I feel thoroughly cosseted! And hey, Lex Luthor! Who wouldn’t be psyched to get to play with name recognition like that?”
That’s how Paul Cornell announced his exclusive with DC Comics on DCU Blog The Source today. His exclusive is part of the swath of Superman related news hitting this week, as the Man of Steel’s writers, artists, and more talk about his significance on the DC house blog.
No word on the “other creative partnerships” but it’s safe to say the writer, who previously has written for Marvel Comics for the last 3 years or so, has some other big projects up his sleeve. He did tease that his star of Action Comics, Lex Luthor, will face-off against Deathstroke, Vandal Savage, the Secret Six, Gorilla Grodd, and of course, Larfleeze the Orange Lantern.
