Friday DC Comics revealed the final 4 titles of the new DC Universe about the Superman Family:
“A new era of DC Comics begins as the longest-running monthly comic of all time releases its first issue #1 since 1938. “This September, New York Times bestselling writer Grant Morrison (ALL-STAR SUPERMAN) joins with sensational artist Rags Morales to bring you tales of The Man of Tomorrow unlike any you’ve ever read before in ACTION COMICS #1. This momentous first issue will set in motion the history of the DC Universe as Superman defends a world that doesn’t trust their first Super Hero. The first Action Comics #1 is now the most sought-after comic book of all time. This September, one of comics’ most imaginative storytellers will make history again in Grant Morrison and Rags Morales’ ACTION COMICS #1.
“What is Superman’s startling new status quo? How does it affect his friends, loved ones and his job at The Daily Planet? Find out in SUPERMAN #1, written by legendary comics creator George Perez (CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, NEW TEEN TITANS and WONDER WOMAN) and illustrated by Jesus Merino. Supergirl’s got the unpredictable behavior of a teenager, the same powers as Superman and none of his affection for the people of Earth.
Writers Michael Green and Mike Johnson (Smallville, SUPERMAN/BATMAN) will team up with artist Mahmud Asrar to give a new take on the teenager from Krypton in SUPERGIRL #1. “They thought he was just a failed experiment, grown from a combination of Kryptonian and human DNA. But when the scope of his stunning powers was revealed, he became a deadly weapon. SUPERBOY #1 will be written by Scott Lobdell with art by R.B. Silva and Rob Lean.
You Knew it would happen what is the DC Universe without Superman. The rewriting of a legend is not easy but with people like George Perez and the great Grant Morrison I bet it will be something special. We will see together how DC’s number one man and the rest of the Super… family fly’s back into comics books and the new digital releases. If you read in book form or on your computer check these stories and art work out. DC is back I hope bigger and even better. We will be there in September to see the first Action comic #1 since 1938 and all the other number one’s. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
