DC Delays Robert Venditti and Althea Martinez' Superman Story Again

Last month, Bleeding Cool reported that Superman Red & Blue #2 would now feature a story by Steven T. Seagle and Duncan Rouleau and will be available in stores on the 20th of April. And that the planned Robert Venditti and Althea Martinez story would be moving into Superman Red & Blue #3, which has an FOC date of this Sunday and will be in stores on the 18th of May.

But it seems not. DC Comics has now told retailers that Superman Red & Blue #3 will now feature a story by Brandon Thomas and Berat Pekmeczi. And that the Robert Venditti and Alitha Martinez story will be moving to a future
Superman Red & Blue issue. Which one, they don't say but they only have three issues left of the anthology series to find room.

Superman: Red & Blue is an anthology series telling Superman stories with a limited palette. No yellow shields here…
