DC Releases Adventures of Superman Sans Homophobic Nutjob

DC Releases Adventures of Superman Sans Homophobic Nutjob

DC released the comic digitally this morning.




Let it not be said that the Outhouse doesn't say nice things about DC Comics.  Despite the comic book publisher blacklisting us for being too critical of them, we're still going to remind everyone to pick up Adventures of Superman #1 today, which is being released through Comixology. 

You might recall that DC had a PR disaster a few months ago (I think it was PR Disaster #19, for those keeping count) when they first announced the comic, as the first issue was originally going to feature a comic by Orson Scott Card.  A lot of fans took umbrange to Card, the sci-fi writer who once equated homosexuality to pedophilia and sits on the board of an anti-gay lobbying group, which eventually forced artist Chris Sprouse to gracefully back out of the project and DC to sweep under their increasingly lumpy rug. 

The comic is now headlined by Jeff Parker and Chris Samnee, whose art alone makes it a must read.  Here's some of the early tweet reviews about the comic. 

 

 

 

Who knew that all it took to make a good comic was to hire respected creators with histories of excellence instead of open bigots?  That's like presuming that the key to a good steak is a little bit of salt and not marinading in horse piss! 

Anyways, go pick up the comic today and let us know what you think!
