A thought occurs about the news that Dan Jurgens and Keith Giffen are to take over the Superman title with #7: What does this mean for OMAC? I’m not sure if Giffen can provide pencils for two regular books each month – I know that he’s fast (If nothing else, his stint doing breakdowns for every issue of 52 – and re-writing one along with Dan Didio – proves that), but that fast? – and somehow, I can’t see the title surviving for very long without his Kirby-esque art and off-kilter, especially considering that it’s already one of the lower selling New 52 books. Just earlier this month, Dan Didio wrote about the first sixteen issues of the title already having been laid out (presumably, in plot form), which suggests cancellation isn’t happening anytime soon, but… will Giffen still be penciling the book after #6?
(I hope so; OMAC is actually one of my favorite of the New 52 books so far, and Giffen’s art, with lovely inks from Scott Koblish, is a large part of that. It’s a high-tech Hulk book with heavy Kirby influence! How could you dislike that?)
