    SOLD-OUT FIRST CHAPTER OF “SUPERMAN AND THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES” GOES BACK TO PRESS

    Spinning out of the hit storyline “The Lightning Saga,” ACTION COMICS #858 — the first chapter of the 6-part story “Superman and The Legion of Super-Heroes” — has sold out at DC Comics and is being rushed back to press.

    “It's been an absolute pleasure and an honor to be working with Gary Frank on ACTION COMIICS,” says writer Geoff Johns. “It's nice to see his dedication to Superman and his unbelievable artwork rewarded. Thanks to everyone who picked up the issue and spread the word. And thanks to DC for keeping it in print!”

    ACTION COMICS #858 Second Printing (SEP078123) features a recolored version of the cover by Gary Frank and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 5.

    To ensure delivery on December 5, retailers must confirm orders by Sunday, November 25. Please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before November 25. This item will not be offered on Final Order Cutoff.

    Retailers may order this issue by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@....

    In addition, retailers who place orders by November 25 will qualify to order the ACTION COMICS #858 Variant Edition, featuring a cover by Gary Frank. Qualifying retailers may order one copy of the ACTION COMICS #858 Variant Edition (under the new item code OCT078011) for every 10 copies of the ACTION COMICS #858 Second Printing (SEP078123) ordered.

    Upcoming issues of ACTION COMICS are available as follows:

    • ACTION COMICS #859 (SEP070184) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on November 21.

    • ACTION COMICS #860 (OCT070157) is solicited in the October Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on December 26.

    • ACTION COMICS #861 (NOV070194) is solicited in the November Previews and is scheduled to arrive in stores on January 30.

    In addition, “The Lightning Saga” is collected in the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA VOL. 2: THE LIGHTNING SAGA HC (OCT070192).
