Paul Cornell takes on DC's big guns

Post by tony ingram on Thu Jun 03, 2010 6:26 pm

Screenwriter and novelist Paul Cornell, probably best known to most of us for his Doctor Who stories (in comics, books and on TV!) and fresh from a critically acclaimed Captain Britain series for Marvel, is taking over the writing chores on DC's flagship title Action Comics, home of superman, from issue #890, surely a major coup for a British writer. Though if Paul's own past statements are to be believed (I spoke to him a couple of years ago for Broken Frontier.com) he'd probably still rather be writing 'The Defenders'; Paul is an unashamed fan of the 'B' list characters, so we can probably expect a few long unseen faces to be resurfacing on the streets of Metropolis...

I enjoyed his Knight and Squire series for DC, and what I read of Demon Knights in the New 52 was interesting. (Bought the first tpb; still have to get around to buying the second one.)

Did you read his New 52 Stormwatch?

He's back at Marvel, now-just finishing up a run on Wolverine.

Well, Wolverine's a big guy. I wouldn't want to tackle him without a run-up either.

Actually, Wolverine's very short, he's just powerfully built.

That's what I meant. Big guy. Lots of muscles.

Actually, no. My exposure to the team was rather limited to the first few issues back in its earliest days with Image.
