I hope that Barrows finds more work in the DCU. Hopefully the reason he is off the book is because he has another project within the DCU. But what could supercede Action Comics? Could it be that he was having a hard time making deadlines?
The thing is his stuff in Action was spectacular. I will miss it.
Julain Lopez has been named as the new regular penciller. A sketch he did of Nightwing and Flamebird is seen above and looks pretty solid.
Lopez seems to be splitting pages on Oracle:The Cure with Fernando Pasarin. He also pencilled Superman #676. I include a half-splash of Superman.
And given the amount of fighting we have seen in Action Comics, I figured I would include an example of a more dynamic scene from the same comic. Here Superman and Alan Scott are battling Solomon Grundy.
His art in that issue was pretty straight-forward. The sketch above seems more solid.
Hopefully Barrows finds his way back to one of the super-titles in the future.
