Roberson is a local Austinite, and, I have from very reliable sources in the Austin comic community, a HUGE Superman fan. There's an article on Roberson in our local paper, The Statesman.
Roberson will be signing his issue at Austin Books on 1/12/2011 from 4-7. Yes, I am definitely going.
Why I think Roberson is the right guy for the job?
From the article:
"The standard knock on Superman is that he is so powerful, what can you give him to do that is interesting?" Roberson said. "Well, that's the writer's job — give him something to do. If he's having to stop muggers, it's going to get old fast. If he's having to travel outside of space and time and sing a certain note to restart the universe, that is really cool to me."me, too, man.
