In the latest Superman Homepage Member Poll we asked you the following question:
Which writer would you like to see take on the duties of writing an ongoing Superman comic book title?
Dan is the man! According to our poll, Superman fans want Dan Jurgens as the first choice to take on the writing duties whenever Brian Michael Bendis’ run on “Action Comics” and “Superman” is over.
