    DC COMICS ANNOUNCES CONTENT UPDATES FOR ISSUES OF SUPERMAN AND SUPERMAN ANNUAL #13

    Several issues of SUPERMAN and SUPERMAN ANNUAL #13 have changed contents as detailed below.

    SUPERMAN #668 (AUG070237) now will feature the story solicited to appear in SUPERMAN #669. In this issue, written by Kurt Busiek with art by Rick Leonardi and Dan Green and a new cover by Renato Guedes and Wilson Magalhaes The new 3-part story “The Third Kryptonian” gets under way. A year ago, Superman learned of another Kryptonian on Earth. Now the hunt goes into overdrive, as the Metropolis Marvel and the Dark Knight Detective’s search takes them from China to Gotham City to California and more. Plus, important developments for Superman’s foster-son Chris Kent, who also gets to meet Robin the Boy Wonder!

    SUPERMAN #668 (AUG070237), which features a new cover by Renato Guedes and Wilson Magalhaes, is available for order adjustment through the Final Order Cutoff date of September 20, and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 10.

    SUPERMAN #669 (AUG070238) now will feature the story solicited to appear in SUPERMAN #670. In this issue, written by Kurt Busiek with art by Rick Leonardi and Dan Green and a cover by Jesus Merino, secrets of Krypton’s past are revealed in “The Third Kryptonian” Part 2 of 3, as survivors and enemies come fast and furious in a centuries-spanning story of interstellar adventure and survival. But someone’s stalking the third Kryptonian…and now he’s after Superman, too!

    SUPERMAN #669 (AUG070238) is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 24.

    SUPERMAN #670 (SEP070182) now will feature a story solicited to run in SUPERMAN ANNUAL #13. In this issue, written by Kurt Busiek with art by Rick Leonardi and Dan Green and a cover by Jesus Merino, it’s the slam-bang, no-holds barred conclusion of the 3-part story “The Third Kryptonian,” as the entire Superman family — Superman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Krypto, Chris Kent and even Batman — makes a desperate last stand against a deadly threat to every Kryptonian in the universe!

    SUPERMAN #670 (SEP070182) is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 7. Please note that this issue will have 48 pages with a cover price of $3.99 US.

    SUPERMAN ANNUAL #13 (SEP070183) now will feature a lead story written by Kurt Busiek with art and cover by Carlos Pacheco and Jesus Merino. The big-action finale to the “Camelot Falls” epic! It’s Kryptonian versus magic in an all-out confrontation between Superman and Arion, beneath the Atlantic. But how does Superman battle a sorcerer? And what does it mean for the fate of the world? The answers involve tidal waves, shipwrecks, secrets, revelations, New Gods, monsters, a walk through time with the Phantom Stranger and the truth about Khyber. Don’t miss the climactic chapter of a story that will have repercussions for Superman and his world for years to come.

    In the backup story, written by Busiek with art by Renato Guedes and Wilson Magalhaes, the Superman family — including The Man of Steel, Lois Lane, Chris Kent, Jonathan and Martha Kent and others, are reunited for what may be the last time.

    SUPERMAN ANNUAL #13 (SEP070183) is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 28.

    Because of these changes, these issues will be made returnable at a later date. DC Comics apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

    So now Pacheco is the latest DC talent to be so delayed they moved his final chapter to an annual, following Heinberg's writing on Wonder Woman and Adam Kubert's art on Action Comics. Oh well, I was looking more forward to The Third Kryptonian (and finally Chris getting more than just a passing mention in the books) than the conclusion of Camelot Falls anyway.

    The new Confidential arc sounds nice.
