"Superman is about someone trying their best to save the world, one day at a time. And it’s about that person’s love for that one whose intellect and emotion and sheer bloody humanity completes him. It’s about Superman, and it’s about Lois and Clark. And that’s all there is. That is the spine. That must be protected, to the death." - Warren Ellis
NEW DIGITAL SUPERMAN TITLE: ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN
"Since last year, DC Comics has been publishing a weekly continuity-free series of Batman tales via the DC Comics app, called Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight. Featuring A-list comic book creators, the goal is to create an anthology-style collection of Batman stories that are accessible to anyone. With the release of Man of Steel impending, DC is finally giving Superman the same treatment.
Debuting on April 29, the first digital chapter of Adventures of Superman will feature a story by Orson Scott Card with art by the wonderful Chris Sprouse and Karl Story on inks. The second digital chapter will be written by Aaron Johnston with art once again by Sprouse and Story, and the third chapter will be by Jeff Parker and Chris Samnee; this one tells the tale of Superman’s first encounter with the menace of arch enemy Lex Luthor.
Adventures of Superman will be getting print collections similar to DC’s other digital-first series, collecting the digital chapters in groups of three. The first print issue will feature a regular cover by Bryan Hitch and an utterly gorgeous variant by Chris Samnee and colorist Matthew Wilson…”
