For the last 75 years, the story of Superman has been carefully crafted by hundreds of writers and artists, each making their own contribution to this iconic character’s rich history. Starting this Wednesday in the pages of the all new series BATMAN/SUPERMAN, it will be writer Greg Pak’s turn to add to the legend of Krypton’s last son.
It’s a great year to be a Superman fan.
Earlier this week, we mentioned that Superman had gathered over 4 million likes on his official Facebook page. That’s an astonishing milestone, and we know that it could only have been possible with the support and love for the character fostered by all of you—the awesome Superman fans who have kept our favorite Kryptonian flying high for 75 years.
