    Default Superman and the Authority

    Looks like the rumors are true. Advance solicits from Penguin Randomhouse have spoiled this book's existence. What's surprising is who's writing it. Color me intrigued, to say the least.

    I left it vauge so folks can be surprised if they want and click on it or wait for the announcement.

    Cover image gives a bit of a tease too. Looks like it might be part of Future State?

    Ah, I didn't see the link. Thanks!

    Holy shit! Yeah, was not expecting that.

    This premise is stupid, but I'll give Morrisonn the chance to sell me on it.

    This is unexpected,
    didn't Liam Sharp say WW Earth One is Morrison's last work at DC?

    I mean the description is not much of a premise, just says Superman meets the Authority by Grant Morrison.

    Only thing of real interest is that it appears to only be two issues. Not sure if that’s an error or if that means it is Future State like stuff.

    So, I guess we're done trying not to spoil who the creative team is? That was quick

    I can totally understand why Morrison would want another kick at the can after their last foray into Wildstorm went so poorly. And Superman is also irresistible, particularly if they can follow through on the New 52's efforts to return him to his social activist roots.

    I always felt that Morrison is likely to return because he loves DC Universe too much to stay away, but I wasn't expecting it so soon.

    It lists it as being 136 pages long so might be two oversized issues.

    This also explains why PKJ said that Morrison was part of the story discussions for Future State when he came on board.

    What hints at it being related to Future State?

    Holy crap, finally something interesting to buy.
    Educational town, Rolemodel city and Moralofthestory land are the places where good comics go to die.

    DC writers and editors looked up and shouted "Save us!"
    And Alan Moore looked down and whispered "No."

    I'm kinda surprised Snyder didn't want Superman to watch Lois and Bruce conceive their love child. All the while singing the "Na na na na na na Batman!" theme song - Robotman, 03/06/2021

    Have to say biggest turn off to me is I’m not the biggest fan of Janin’s art.

    To me, this raises more questions about PKJ's big action comics event for later this year. Because he's said in the past, Mikel Janin is working on it and that's why he's not drawing the book at the start of his run. I wonder how tied this is to that.

    Also, you have to imagine this book will be officially announced soon, with a trade already coming in November.
