The acclaimed artist will join writer Grant Morrison on the title, which is currently offering a reimagined origin for Superman as part of DC Comics' 52 title relaunch.
Kubert will illustrate issues Action Comics #5 and #6 - which will feature the Legion of Super-Heroes as guest stars - before regular artist Rags Morales returns for issue #7.
"When editor Matt Idelson asked if I would be interested and/or able to fit into my schedule two upcoming issues of Action Comics with Grant, I couldn't say no," Kubert told The Source. "I don't know of any other artist that would have.
"Drawing the latest incarnation of Superman and working with one of the best writers on the planet made it a very easy decision for me. And in this story, I get to do some VERY iconic stuff. I've got to admit, I'm a little nervous."
Kubert continued: "Fun Fact for those keeping score: I had never drawn Superman in a comics interior for an entire issue. I had done inking over Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for an issue each over their beautiful pencils way (and I mean WAY) back when, but this is my first opportunity to pencil the Man of Steel interior pages for my very own!"
Kubert most recently illustrated Flashpoint, the final event comic before the September relaunch.
