Gene Luen Yang To Write Superman With John Romita Jr – The End Of The New 52

cm_yang11038lhIt's the end of the New 52. But it is not a reboot.

It's been a while since DC Comics actually published 52 monthly titles, every month. But as part of the mini-relaunch in June that Bleeding Cool promised, and ahead of today's retailer meetings in Burbank, DC Comics is making it official and stating they are publishing 48 titles every month and dropping the New 52 branding. To be fair, it was mostly the New 52: Futures End book that was keeping that branding going – and that's now come to an end. Twenty-four books from before will continue, twenty-four new books will begin. Though it's possible a new weekly season of Batman Eternal will bump those actually shipped numbers up a bit….

One of the new looking books of the block is Superman, no longer written by Geoff Johns, but by the award winning Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese, and appearing in his first DC work last week in Vertigo Black.
