The Death of Superman Animated Movie Gets a Comic Tie-In

DC Comics has launched The Death of Superman: Part 1, a new Digital First series following the digital release of The Death of Superman animated film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The new series comes from famed Superman writer Louise “Weezie” Simonson, and kicking off art duties is superstar Wonder Woman ’77 artist, Cat Staggs, followed in subsequent chapters by Joel Ojeda, Laura Braga and more. Readers can download the first chapter now.

What is it like to be Superman—when the events of a day can be completed in a matter of minutes? This series begins as readers follow the hours that lead to the Man of Steel’s face-off with Doomsday—the alien that is destined to destroy him. He’ll save an astronaut when a meteor crashes into their shuttle, he’ll save Major Lane when his experiment-gone-wrong Metallo comes for revenge, plus he’ll save time for a visit when Ma and Pa come to Metropolis to meet his new lady, Lois—and that’s just the beginning. The series contains additional chapters following the path of the Daily Planet’s Jimmy Olsen in those fateful hours, plus the aftermath of the loss of a true hero.

These are never-before-told stories of what happened before, during, and after the conflict with Doomsday that cost Superman his life. Each story will explore what power means—for someone like Superman who wields it for the good of humanity, or the villains who use it to further their own selfish agendas.

The Death of Superman: Part 1 is a 12-part series, released weekly. The first chapter is available for download now via the DC Comics App,readdc.com,  iBooks, comiXology.com, Google Play, Kindle Store and Nook Store.

The Death of Superman is the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment. The film finds Superman in a fight to the finish against his ultimate foe, Doomsday, as he unleashes unstoppable rampage and destruction on Earth. The animated film was released digitally by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on July 24, 2018, and will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD August 7, 2018.

Dick Tracy Not Coming to Archie Due to Licensor “Mistake”

Archie Comics‘ Co-President/Editor/Writer/PR person Alex Segura went to Twitter earlier today to say that there will not be a Dick Tracy. A “mistake on the licensor’s part” is the cause. Tribune Content Agency discovered a “preexisting licensing deal that precludes” this project. The series was announced in early December.

Co-written by Segura and Michael Moreci, it would have featured art by Thomas Pitilli, colors by Dee Cunniffen, and lettering from Jack Morelli. The first issue also featured variant covers by Francesco Francavilla, Kyle Baker, Cat Staggs, and Michael Walsh. The comic series was to kick off in April 11, 2018.

Its focus was on the earlier years of the detective, “square one,” with a blend of the classic Dick Tracy and a “modern and dark noir feel.”
