Apparently Mark Guggenheim isn't going to be writing Action Comics after all. I don't really have a horse in the race here; I've not read much by Guggenheim or Cornell (and I haven't checked yet to see if he's written any of my favorite Doctor Who episodes).
Mostly I just wanted to comment on the incredibly weak explanation for why Guggenheim isn't going to be writing the book. Because honestly? "My idea is too good for me to write myself" isn't particularly believable as an explanation.
I don't know why he's not sticking around; it doesn't matter to me one way or another. After all, Action is one of four comics I will never stop buying (the others being Superman, Detective, and Batman). I just think it's a bizarre reason why he left the book.
