Now Marv Wolfman Gives Comics Retailers Their Own 100 Page Superman Exclusive

In DC Comics January 2019 solicitations, comic book retailers are treated to the promise of the best Superman story Marv Wolfman has ever written in Superman 100-Page Super-Spectacular #1. And this one won't be in Walmart, folks. Dennis Barger Jr. should be pleased.

Originally planned for Superman Confidential a decade ago, the story, with art by Claudio Castellini, never saw print due to the book's cancellation. But now it's here, and only in comic shops. Is this DC's way of saying "we're sorry?"

Walmart gets Bendis. Retailers get Marv Wolfman. Who got the better deal? Let us know in the comments.

"This is the best Superman story I've ever written." So says living legend Marv Wolfman, and when you've written hundreds of Superman stories as he has, it means a great deal. This gem of a tale—written and drawn from 2006-2009 for the SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL series—explodes from the DC archives as a triumphant tale of Clark Kent's fateful first days in Metropolis, which were far from easy. His early failures almost ensured there would never be a hero called Superman. Powerful writing and stunning art combine to conjure an inspiring story that needed to be published, one you will never forget, from a pair of master storytellers.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
