DC Comics has announced that Andy Kubert will join Grant Morrison on a two-issue arc of Action Comics.  Kubert will step in on issues #5 and #6 that features an appearance by the Legion of Super-Heroes and Krypto.

“When Editor Matt Idelson asked if I would be interested and/or able to fit into my schedule two upcoming issues of Action Comics with Grant, I couldn’t say no,” said Kubert. “I don’t know of any other artist that would have. Drawing the latest incarnation of Superman and working with one of the best writers on the planet made it a very easy decision for me. And in this story, I get to do some VERY iconic stuff! I gotta admit, I’m a little nervous… Fun Fact for those keeping score: I had never drawn Superman in a comics interior for an entire issue. I had done inking over Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for an issue each over their beautiful pencils way (and I mean WAY) back when but this is my first opportunity to pencil the Man of Steel interior pages for my very own!”

While seeing Kubert’s interiors for Action Comics will be really great, some are going to wonder if this is a move simply to keep the comic book on a regular monthly release schedule, and if Rags Morales is falling behind.  Regardless of schedules, DC has confirmed that Morales will return with issue #7.

    I am thinking “yes” to your speculation. There’s a lot of good stuff in the “new 52” but a lot of stuff seems like it was rushed ahead of time and that would seem to put artists and colorist behind a bit.
