Bendis’ first story, a backup story for Action Comics #1000 was announced a few weeks ago (see “Superman Dons His Red Trunks for 'Action Comics' #1000”). Now DC has revealed the story will lead into a six-issue weekly miniseries, Man of Steel, launching on May 30. Art will be drawn by Ivan Reis, Evan “Doc” Shaner, Ryan Sook, Kevin Maguire, Adam Hughes, and Jason Fabok, among others. The series will feature six interconnected covers drawn by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. The story will reorient Superman’s origin story and introduce a new villain. A prelude issue by Bendis and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez will be released on May 2 as part of the DC Nation #0 preview sampler.
DC also announced a new custom imprint, which will be curated by Bendis. It is set to feature Bendis’ favorite characters from the DC Universe, put in unique and unusual situations, including interactions with brand new characters created just for this imprint.
