IGN spoke with Johns and Romita Jr. about coming on to the monthly, and the duo teased a bit of their creative process and things to come for the Man of Steel.
“I think working with somebody like John, who has ideas of his own, we’d go back and forth and amplify each other,” Johns told IGN. “That’s really where I get my excitement about working on a project, is when I speak with an artist and we actually become real, creative collaborators. It’s not about handing a script over and then having the pages drawn. It’s gotta be about that collaboration. You talk and formulate ideas and themes before you even start writing or drawing. For me, that’s the key to a great relationship. Again, like I said, it’s a lifelong dream. It’s such an honor to work with John, because I’ve followed his work of course for years. So it’s really a dream come true, and it’s great to be back on Superman.”
