Last week, we gave you 5.2 Awesome Reasons to check out DC Comics' Digital First line, but in case you needed more convincing (we know, we know: how could you possibly need more after that amazing column, amirite?)

There's a new age upon us: an age of technology. An age where computers and tablets and smartphones have allowed us to advance as a species further than we could ever imagine. Seriously, we can take pictures of our food and share them with the world. We can tell people EXACTLY what we're doing. We can even make short six-second videos of anything we want—no matter how unnecessary or completely insane it may seem.
Everyone knows that Superman is faster than a speeding bullet. But is he fast enough to save lives on Earth, stop another planet from exploding, respond to the Justice League to help out in another galaxy, and still make it back in time to Metropolis to walk Lois Lane to work?

Superman has been the world’s most beloved and recognized super hero for 75 years, and with a major new movie on the horizon and numerous comic book titles on the shelves, that’s not likely to change anytime soon.
But why is he so beloved? What is it about the Man of Steel that makes him so popular with people over generations? And why do so many writers and artists in comics—no matter how busy they may otherwise be—find the chance to tell a Superman tale an offer that’s too good to pass up?
DC Entertainment is once again expanding its line-up of digital first comics with today’s release of ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #1, written by Jeff Parker with art by Chris Samnee.
