After the OUR WORLDS AT WAR stories conclude this month, look for a different pacing in DC Comics' four monthly SUPERMAN titles.
"After the War, one of things we want to do is separate the books," SUPERMAN group editor Eddie Berganza, "For six months at least, where the books are going to be stories unto themselves."
"And a lot of those stories and going to be self-contained, one-off stories as well,"SUPERMAN writer Jeph Loeb said. "The story will start and end in that same issue."
ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN writer Joe Casey said the separation shouldn't be construed as any conflict within the group of Super-writers.
"With this group of guys, it's a blast doing these things," Casey said of the inter-locking stories. "I don't think anybody has any horror stories, but I think we all want to go our way for a bit, and then we'll get back."
"We let the story determine what the best format is to do," said SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL writer Mark Schultz.
Casey said he's particularly looking forward to dealing with Lex Luthor.
"As a president, he's doing good things for the country," Casey said. "The guy's a world-class business man. He's got America running like a top, this war aside. And that's going to be a big deal in the coming months. I personally find that stuff very interesting."
Look for the books to re-link probably next summer as the creators say they're already starting to plan the next big event.
"It's a game of 'Can you top this?'" Loeb said. "But what we have in mind is pretty out there."
