I don’t know if it is tardiness by writers, artists, or something else all together, but DC is changing the story line up for several Superman titles. Unlike Marvel, who is more than happy to delay issues, DC takes a different approach by changing stories mid-stream. I’m going to call it “Pulling a Wonder Woman”. And hey, what a coincidence, Wonder Woman appears in #661!
For those of you who read the Superman title, take the jump to find out what is being replaced and what is being added.
SUPERMAN #660 now will feature a story written by Kurt Busiek, with art by Mike Manley & Bret Blevins and a cover by James Fry & Rodney Ramos. This issue looks at someone who’s popped in and out of SUPERMAN for months. Ever since “Up, Up and Away,” he’s made his presence known. Now, at long last, the story you demanded starring… The Prankster?! This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 14.
SUPERMAN #661 now will feature a story written by Kurt Busiek & Richard Howell, with art by Richard Howell & Eduardo Barreto and a cover by Jesus Merino. In it, an ancient and vicious curse set into motion by the Greek gods hits Metropolis, challenging Superman in a way he’s never been challenged before. It’ll take more than the Man of Steel to save the day this time. Enter: Wonder Woman! But even their combined power may not be enough to halt a curse older than time itself! This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on March 28. Retailers may adjust orders on it through the Final Order Cutoff date of March 8.
SUPERMAN #662 now will feature the start of the 5-part second half of “Camelot Falls,” previous slated to appear in issue #661. This issue is written by Kurt Busiek with art and cover by Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino. This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on April 11. Retailers may adjust orders on it through the Final Order Cutoff date of March 22.
SUPERMAN #663 now will feature now will feature chapter two of the 5-part second half of “Camelot Falls,” in which the Young Gods of New Genesis pay a visit to Metropolis, while the Prankster is on the loose and the threat of Arion looms over the city. This story was previous slated to appear in issue #662, and is written by Kurt Busiek with art and cover by Carlos Pacheco & Jesus Merino, as solicited in the March Previews (Volume XVII #3). This issue is scheduled to arrive in stores on May 9.
