Original Superman Story by Tom King and Andy Kubert Kicks Off in Superman 100-Page Comic GIANT

12-Part Story by Tom King and Andy Kubert Kicks Off in Superman 100-Page GIANT Available Exclusively at Walmart Stores This Week

Bestselling HARLEY QUINN Team of Conner, Palmiotti, Hardin and Sinclair Reunite in Justice League 100-Page GIANT for New Wonder Woman Story

Issue #3 of the 100-Page SUPERMAN GIANT comic, along with the third issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE GIANT, begins shipping to more than 3,000 Walmart stores nationwide today, with all participating stores displaying these titles by Sunday, September 9. First announced in June of this year, these “100-Page GIANT” monthly titles combine new stories by top DC writers with classic tales from DC’s deep history.

The cornerstone of SUPERMAN GIANT #3 is part one of the 12-chapter “Up in the Sky,” an original story by multiple Eisner Award-winner Tom King, writing his first Superman story since the poignant and heartfelt “For Tomorrow” in April’s landmark ACTION COMICS #1000. King, along with artist Andy Kubert, inker Sandra Hope, colorist Brad Anderson and letterer Clayton Cowles, has created a classic superhero story involving the kidnapping of an Earth child from Gotham City. Featuring DC mainstays Lois Lane and Perry White, in addition to cameo appearances from Batman and Green Lantern, this 12-part tale asks the question: How far across the galaxy will the Man of Steel go to bring a single child home?

Also headed to shelves this week in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE GIANT #3 is the first installment of Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti, Chad Hardin, Alex Sinclair and Travis Lanham’s new Wonder Woman story, “Come Back to Me.” Conner, Palmiotti, Hardin and Sinclair, having built their fanbase for years with their blockbuster monthly HARLEY QUINN series, reunite to showcase Diana Prince, Steve Trevor and Etta Candy and tell a story about firefighters battling a blazing wildfire in the mountains.

Wish I could get these. Tried to get the last two issues, but nowhere in two different Wal-marts to be found. Asked a person who was stocking magazines about the Superman giant and she got that deer in the headlights look and said she didn’t know anything about it. Anyone else had the same luck?

That’s why this whole idea was doomed to fail from the start. Wally Managers could not care if it makes it out on the shelves & see it as “kiddie comics” unlike a $20 or so summer blockbuster movie which would sell tons more. Not to mention Walmart warehouses have had the recent trend of not shipping their products to the stores (LOL…no wonder the company stocks are less than the Dollar Generals) If DC was smart they would put these all over in grocery stores (like the good old days)& other retail chains ( & not just the failing… Read more »

Just picked one of these up for my son and, of course, I gave it a read. I was a little disappointed that this Superman collection only has Superman in half the stories presented.They had the King story mentioned, an issue of Superman/Batman then we get a Green Lantern story and an issue of The Terrifics. This is the first I’ve ever read of Mr. Terrific and I must say, he’s kind of an @$$.
