COMICS: Geoff Johns On Working With John Romita Jr. On SUPERMAN; New Artwork Revealed
Justice League and Forever Evil writer Geoff Johns talks here about collaborating with John Romita Jr. (The Amazing Spider-Man to put "the Man of Tomorrow back in the Man of Tomorrow", while we also have some new sketches of JRJr's Supes. Check it out!
"I think working with somebody like John, who has ideas of his own, we'd go back and forth and amplify each other. 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.
For me, as far as the story goes, my tagline for the story is "Putting the Man of Tomorrow back in the Man of Tomorrow." It's really looking at Superman and getting back to the core values and attributes and strengths of Superman. Really, the Man of Tomorrow is the theme, for me, that we're going to tackle in this first storyline."
