DC Comics Relaunch: Doing The Creative Shuffle In August

It just wouldn’t be comics without some creative changes, right? So let’s get right into the books that are solicited for August with new creative teams!

First up is Superboy, formerly (currently) written by Scott Lobdell, the former X-Men scribe is going to be moving out of the way to make room for…Spider-Girl creator Tom DeFalco!

Meanwhile, DC Universe Presents is picking up the next creative team in it’s rotating cycle, and it’s fan favorite writer Fabian Nicieza coming back to DC after leaving Legion Lost several months ago. Though he’s coming back to write a Kid Flash story, which just sounds like all kinda of awesome.
