DC Comics reveals ‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’ #5 outsells first issue

Fans who missed ‘Superman: Son of Kal-El’ #1-4 can pickup reprints out November 23rd.

Press Release

DC Comics has revealed today Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 has outsold the debut issue as well as the fact that issues #1-4 are going back to print. The sales spike is likely due to DC Comics revealing Jon Kent is coming out as bisexual in Superman: Son of Kal-El #5.

The series has been incredibly well written by Tom Taylor and drawn by John Timms and is now joined by Hi-Fi on colors.
