DC Comics has a lot to be excited about this week including the fact that Tom Taylor and John Timms’ Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 has sold out at the distributor level. Props to colors artist Gabe Eltreb and letterer by Dave Sharpe as well. That means a second printing is underway so fear not if you couldn’t find a copy at your local comic book shop. Given AIPT’s Ryan Perry loved the first issue it’s no surprise. Expect to find it in comic book shops on September 7th.
Earlier today, Taylor took to Twitter to thank the readers and retailers.
Our #Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 has sold out and is getting a 2nd printing!
