I understand from pretty decent sources that the new team on Action Comics, after Scott Lobdell's fill-in, are Batman/Superman's Greg Pak and New Guardian's Aaron Kuder, who recently drew part of Superman #18.
Of course, Kuder is also known for writing and drawing his own work elsewhere.
I'm hearing the possibility that some people may be looking at him to do more on the book, just as Tony Daniels is right now.
Possibly for similar reasons?
