Month #0: The Superman Group Solicits
Throughout the day today, we have been posting the group solicits for the September #0 Month event.
For those that don’t know, we are only a few months away from the one year anniversary of the DC Comics-The New 52 debut. This September, DC will release every New 52 title with a #0 numbering. What does this mean for us? Each #0 will begin a trend of stand-alone stories. Some of these stories will deal with character or even team origins, while other stories for established characters will provide answers to questions that we as readers may have about the New 52 Universe.
The solicits we received today were grouped into seven different categories. We have posted six of the seven solicit groups: Justice League, Batman, Green Lantern, The Dark, The Edge & Young Justice.
Here is the Superman group, the seventh & final solicit group for the day, along with promotional artwork for each title.
