STEVE RUDE Joins BENDIS & SHANER on MAN OF STEEL #2

  • Steve Rude will be joining DC Comics' The Man of Steel #2, according to a retailer notice sent out by DC Comics.

    No reason was given for the change, however Rude will be sharing art duties on the book with the previously-solictied Evan "Doc" Shaner. Rude previously stepped in to assist Shaner on DC's Future Quest.


Damn.

I hate Bendis.

I'm not a fan of Jon Kent

But, man, Rude is one of my all time top 10 (if not top 5) artists and Shaner is my favorite "new" artist currently working.

Now I may have to buy this.

Steve Rude is not in my top 10, but I still like his work. In the Kirby tribute topic years ago, I recommended a SUPERMAN/HULK one-shot by Roger Stern and Steve Rude that was exceptional in the many visual details and tributes it had. Nice tribute to the mid-1960's Lee/Kirby Hulk in TALES TO ASTONISH and AVENGERS, and to the 1950's Superman TV series.

Plus a LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE tribute to the Kirby JIMMY OLSEN issues, that almost reads like a lost episode.

I'd guess your favorite Steve Rude work is his NEXUS run?

Nexus, definitely

I also quite liked that “Worlds Finest” mini he did

I was quite fond of NEXUS also. First Comics really was top of the line when they were headed by NEXUS, Grell's JON SABLE FREELANCE, Chaykin's AMERICAN FLAGG, Ostrander/Truman's GRIMJACK, and Gillis/Saenz's SHATTER. When the original creative teams left these series, the books never recovered, and the line folded.

But in the early/mid 80's First had an incredible ratio of quality material.
