DC Says "Screw Print and Continuity", Will Publish Digital First Superman Series

DC Says

Shockingly, the series has actually attracted fresh talent to the company.

While the rest of DC's line flounders in a myriad of mediocre talent doubled over by bizarre editorial mandates, the company has announced a new title that might not be terrible.  Adventures of Superman will be a digital-first anthology featuring out of continuity stories by a variety of creators.  The series will includes stories by Orson Scott Card, Chris Samnee, Bruce Timm, and Jeff Parker, along with a plethora of other well-known comic writers and artists, many of whom don't suck.

If DC could attract this sort of talent to it's New 52 line (which seems increasingly dependent on Jeff Lemire, Scott Snyder and Geoff Johns to keep it together), it probably wouldn't need to rely on groan enducing gimmicks such as "WTF Month", which at least two dozen industry insiders have referred to as "the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard."  Of course, the line of creators contributing to the new digital series were probably attracted to the forward thinking nature of the anthology, something that DC's other offerings largely seem to lack. 

Anyways, the definitely non-stupid and probably non-awful Adventures of Superman will be made available in April.  Be sure to keep your eye peeled for it on your digital tablet.
