    Wow...so we get what Bendis is doing in the main books and Tom King writing Supes monthly for a year with this Walmart book.

    Looks like i will be back to buying at least one physical book a month for the first time on a regular basis in awhile! Smart move on DC's part.
    When it comes to comics,one person's "fan-service" is another persons personal cannon. So by definition it's ALL fan service. Aren't we ALL fans?
    SUPERMAN is the greatest fictional character ever created.

    These exclusive Walmart books are driving me crazy. You can't find them in NYC, and they are going to be worth a fortune. This is great original material.

    I'm currently very frustrated because the closest Walmart to me is an hour away... I can't got that far to try to find these books so often.. can we order online. Sigh, I really want the Superman related stories. These books sounded exactly like what I needed. Can we hope to see it collected one day?

    Tom King was on Word Balloon, and he talked about Up In The Sky.

    - Each issue is a 12 page short story in a overarching plot line.

    - The overarching plot is that a little girl gets kidnapped into space.

    - Clark goes out looking for here and sort of bets obsessed with it, and will be making sacrifices along the quest.

    - Issue 3 is the boxing issue. Don't remember the opponent's name (might-O or "mydo" something like that), but it's apparently a forgotten DC character and it's 12 rounds of "super boxing."

    - Very cosmic and 50s science fiction

    - Uses an experimental story telling technique

    PM me if you tryina mix it up in SFV (and Dragon Ball FighterZ). Just know: the hypa bomb takes no prisoners.

    Wouldn't be a Tom King story without something depressing

    Would these stories be canon?

    If they are, they'll face an angry mob of international fans as they haven't announced any digital or non-US release for these. Teen Titans also has the issue of it's roster probably being different. So I'm pretty sure that these are essentially Elseworlds.

    It is all great except that it is exclussive to Walmart. Why not put it out in other retailers

    Walmart IS as massively mainstream as superstores go, where EVERYONE shops, as well as potential DC Comics 100 Page Giants exposure, compared to against the stigma of the small "nerd" shops that is the comic book store, that only a minority, let alone a minority who has any idea where those comic book stores are located.

    Do you think they could be found in ASDA megastores in the UK? They're merged with Wal-Mart

    A new national inventory platform with a King Kubert story to front it. It kinda makes too much sense, scary.

    Combinations of old and new stories to draw in different generations of readers is smart.

    Having kon-El on the cover is also AWESOME
