Although Andy Diggle and Tony S Daniel are lined up to start their Action Comics run with issue 18, I understand that Grant Morrison and Rags Morales will need one more issue to finish their story. Which means Diggle and Daniel's debut will be delayed to April and issue 19.
So expect some kind of retro solicitation to come down the pipe. Once they've worked out exactly what Grant and Rags are doing.
Here is the current solicitation. Looks it will be one more month before Andy Diggle will be the first person to write the US's biggest sci-fi icon and the UK's biggest sci-fi icon* simultaneously. And no one has done that before…
