Issue #3 of the 100-Page Superman Giant comic, along with the third issue of Justice League Giant, begins shipping to more than 3,000 Walmart stores nationwide today, with all participating stores displaying these titles by Sunday, September 9. First announced in June of this year, these “100-Page GIANT” monthly titles combine new stories by top DC writers with classic tales from DC’s deep history.
The cornerstone of Superman Giant #3 is part one of the 12-chapter “Up in the Sky,” an original story by multiple Eisner Award-winner Tom King, writing his first Superman story since the poignant and heartfelt “For Tomorrow” in April’s landmark Action Comics #1000. King, along with artist Andy Kubert, inker Sandra Hope, colorist Brad Anderson and letterer Clayton Cowles, has created a classic superhero story involving the kidnapping of an Earth child from Gotham City. Featuring DC mainstays Lois Lane and Perry White, in addition to cameo appearances from Batman and Green Lantern, this 12-part tale asks the question: How far across the galaxy will the Man of Steel go to bring a single child home?
Also headed to shelves this week in the pages of Justice League Giant #3 is the first installment of Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti, Chad Hardin, Alex Sinclair and Travis Lanham’s new Wonder Woman story, “Come Back to Me.” Conner, Palmiotti, Hardin and Sinclair, having built their fanbase for years with their blockbuster monthly Harley Quinn series, reunite to showcase Diana Prince, Steve Trevor and Etta Candy and tell a story about firefighters battling a blazing wildfire in the mountains.
