Following the news of the upcoming reveal of Jon Kent coming out as bisexual in issue #5 of SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL, global fan excitement has led to more orders for the upcoming issue than the series’ debut issue!

For fans that may not be caught up on the series, DC is going back to the printers for the first four issues of SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL. Fans can place their orders at their local comic book shops for each of the single issue reprints, which will now feature the DC Pride logo on their covers, by October 30th for an in-store date of November 23rd.

From writer Tom Taylor (DARK KNIGHTS OF STEEL), artist John Timms (HARLEY QUINN), colorist HI-FI (WONDER WOMAN) and letterer Dave Sharpe (BATGIRL), issue #5 of SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL will be available in comic book shops and digital retailers on Tuesday, November 16. After initially striking up a friendship with reporter Jay Nakamura, he and Jon become romantically involved in the pages of SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #5. Following a scene where Superman mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can, Jay is there to care for the Man of Steel.
