SUPERMAN #6 (Feb 2012)
George Pérez Wanted To Leave ‘Superman,’ Said Dan Jurgens

During the recent New York Comic-Con, word from DC Comics came that George Pérez, who was the star attraction for Superman #1, wanted to leave the title after his initial six issues.

Originally, Pérez was believed to be moving to the position of inker on Superman after Dan Jurgens begins penciling with issue #7. (Pérez already inks Jurgens’ pencils on the current Green Arrow comic.) But instead of inking Superman after Keith Giffen and Jurgens take over, Pérez apparently will be penciling something else for DC. It’s something he really wants to do, but no further information was released, according to newsarama.

“George is going to be moving on to do some penciling work at this point,” Jurgens said during an interview during the con. “And it looks like Jesus Merino, who’s currently inking the Superman book, will be staying on to work with us. That’s how it’s looking right now.”
