Superman: Up In The Sky #1 Hits Shelves This Week
No more hunting down 100-page giants.
For the past year or so, DC has been partnered with Walmart stores for the sale of 100-page special comics that include reprints of classic issues as well as original, ongoing stories written by current DC talent. Fan-favorites like Batman and Superman both got the 100-page treatment, with their respective new stories involving a creative team switcheroo. Brian Michael Bendis, the current mainline Superman writer, took on the 100-page special Batman with artist Nick Derrington, and Tom King, the current mainline Batman writer, took on Superman with artist Andy Kubert.
Since their initial release, the only way to read these new original stories was by tracking down a physical copy of the special at Walmart--that is, until now. After nearly a year of exclusivity to Walmart stores, the 100-page special line has evolved and expanded--including publication of the original stories as traditional comics, available anywhere comics are sold, starting this week with Superman: Up In The Sky #1. Take a look at a preview of the first five pages here.
The issue includes the first two parts of the story originally included in the Superman 100-page giants volumes #3 and #4, in which Clark is charged with solving a mysterious rash of murders--a case that promptly goes cosmic and leads him to the alien planet Rann.
