DC FIRST LOOK – Superman #23, On Sale July 7, 2020

DC Comics has given us a first look at artwork from “Superman #23”.

If I was Superman, I’d probably be asking myself, “Wonder if I should have rethought this whole revealing my secret identity thing?” Many folks in Big Blue’s world are still worried that he’s been tricked into destroying his own privacy. Having to go toe-to-toe with Mongul probably isn’t helping things, either.

In Superman #23 (on sale July 7) the Man of Steel will be dealing with a new villain, one steeped in magic and mysticism. And any Superman fan knows that he doesn’t have the greatest relationship with the old hocus-pocus. But Fate will step in to lend a hand – Dr. Fate, that is. This issue will also see some appearances from other denizens of the DCU’s more shadowy corners, including John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Swamp Thing and Detective Chimp.

Here’s your first look at the John Timms cover and some interiors from Superman #23 by Kevin Maguire and Alex Sinclair. Superman #23 is written by Brian Michael Bendis, with additional art by John Timms and letters by Dave Sharpe.

On sale beginning Tuesday, July 7 at all open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers.

Isn’t it about time for Superman to handle magic and mysticism on his  own and over come it by himself and have an arch where Superman learns how to defeat Magic – which is science that is beyond our knowledge – once and for all.?!?!

Wow, is that what Dr. Fate looks like these days? I am NOT a fan of those gypsy pants.

Don’t know what’s going on with Fate in other books or solo series but yeah that’s not the best re-design IMO. Don’t like the pants over his boots or the short gloves.
I actually like the one from the Young Justice animated series. Very distinct but still looks like a superhero, still looks like Dr. Fate. My only quibble with that one is that I think Fate’s helmet looks cooler with the eyes whited out and the blue looks a little too much like black in a lot of shots.
