We recently chatted with Doctor Who scribe and DC Comics writer Paul Cornell about his plans for Lex Luthor, London's premiere crimefighting force Knight and Squire, and what it's like to work with Neil Gaiman.
Cornell's run on Action Comics has been a hoot and a half. With Superman pounding ground across the continental United States, Lex Luthor's been free to search for lost power of the Black Lanterns. This journey is fraught with weirdness, which includes (but is not limited to) Lex's cybernetic Lois Lane sidekick, Gorilla Grodd's "battle spoon" (which he uses to cannibalize foes), and an encounter with Neil Gaiman's Death in next month's issue (the battle with Grodd doesn't go particularly well). Additionally Cornell is penning a miniseries starring Knight and Squire, the UK's own Dynamic Duo. In the course of the series, Cornell's promised to introduce a 100 or new superheroes from across the pond. Here's what Paul told us about these upcoming projects.
