No, it's true, the 1st big arc has always been 9 issues. & while I adore Clark, & love working with @JimLee & would have been thrilled (1/2)— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) January 21, 2014
to continue, we both have a lot on our plates after UNCHAINED, and I can tell you that what's coming in the Superman group is going (2/3)— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) January 21, 2014
