If you have been eagerly awaiting for Tom Taylor to write a Superman title, well, I have big news for you Den Lurkers. Publisher DC Comics announced Big Changes for the Superman Family, including two new series!
Superman: Son of Kal-El, Written by Tom Taylor and Illustrated by John Timms!
Coming July 13th, Superman: Son of Kal-El will be an ongoing Monthly Series that will be replacing the Superman Flagship Title. Joining the new series will be writer Tom Taylor and artist John Timms, the series will be focusing on Jon Kent who takes over for his father as the Protector of Earth, here is a description of the series, along with the variant covers by the following artists: Jen Bartel, Lee Inyuk, Stephen Bryne.
“Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He’s fought evil with Robin (Damian Wayne), traveled across galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather, and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father could no longer be Superman. There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon. It’s time for the son to wear the cape of his father and continue the never-ending battle as a symbol of hope for his home planet.”
Clark Kent continues his fight with the Warworld in Action Comics, also creating a New Team in Superman and the Authority!
In Action Comics #1033, writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Daniel Sampere, including Variant Cover Artist J. Totino Tedesco, keep the Man of Steel on the front lines in his battle to aid a group of Warworld Refugees, which is set to go on sale on July 27th. Variant Cover by Jen Bartel!
“This issue takes the action to Atlantis and the Fortress of Solitude, where Warworld refugees have taken possession of dangerous Warworld tech, bringing it to Aquaman’s undersea kingdom and risking an all-out war that even Superman may not be able to prevent. Meanwhile, some of the escaped Warworld prisoners have found the Fortress of Solitude…and along with it, Lois Lane!
And in this 40-page blockbuster’s second feature, Midnighter has gone deep into the Trojan compound and found a very unexpected guest whose path he crossed in Future State—none other than Shilo Norman, a.k.a. Mister Miracle!“
And in Superman and the Authority, this Four-Issue Limited Series sees writer Grant Morrison and artist Mikel Janín return bringing Manchester Black to lead a new team, the Authority! Bringing back several members and new ones. Coming July 20th! This will launch an all-new status quo for Superman, setting up story elements that will impact both Action Comics and Superman: Son of Kal-El in the months to come.
“Led by Manchester Black, and combine original members Midnighter and Apollo with new members Enchantress and Natasha Irons, as well as new versions of Lightray and O.M.A.C. This new team will have to learn to work together, and fast, as the Ultra-Humanite has formed his team of villains to take out the Man of Steel.”
Kara Zor-El travels the Cosmos tracking a Murderous Alien in the limited series Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow
Coming July 20th, in the second issue of this new eight-issue miniseries, Kara is on the pursuit of a murderous alien fugitive, traveling across the Galaxy in a Space Bus.

“Supergirl, Krypto, and their new friend Ruthye find themselves stranded with no way to pursue Krem, the murderous kingsagent. Each moment this fugitive roams free, the more beings come dangerously close to dying by his hand. There is no time to lose, so our heroes must now travel across the universe the old-fashioned way…by cosmic bus! Little do they know their journey will be a dark one, filled with terrors that not even the Maid of Might is prepared to face!“
