Bendis on the Differences Between “Action Comics” and “Superman”

In an interview with Newsarama.com writer Brian Michael Bendis explains how he’s telling two very different stories between “Action Comics” and “Superman”, what the differences are, and how they relate to one another. Here’s an excerpt from the interview…

“They’re completely different storylines,” he explains. “But they mirror and breathe next to each other like all good comic books should.”

“Whereas Superman, the title, is very big, with big stories and big villains and big goings-on in the DC Universe, the kind of things only Superman can handle, in Action Comics, it’s more the world according to Clark Kent, which of course includes Superman but is The Daily Planet and truth and justice and the American Way and what’s going on in the streets of Metropolis and with Lois Lane and all of that.”

“So we have one book that takes Superman to the farthest reaches of everything DC has to offer and one that has him at his desk trying to figure out what the truth is.”
