Any possibility that there will be a continuation of the Superman 78 comic series coming out anytime soon? I really really enjoyed that comic series and would like to see more adventures of my favorite version of Superman(Christopher Reeve) in more comic book adventures. He could have a continuing series that could last at least 5 years maybe more. Considering Superman’s rouges gallery, it would mean fresh and new takes on Superman’s first encounters with some of his most natorious foes. New comic book adventures of Superman starring Christopher Reeve’s Superman for years to come.
