Tuesday's Headlines | Superman: Son of Kal-El series delayed two weeks

DC has postponed the release of Superman: Son of Kal-El #1 and #2.

This planned relaunch of the main Superman title with Superman's son Clark Kent will now debut July 27 - two weeks past its originally announced July 13 debut.

The follow-up issue has likewise been delayed two weeks to August 24.

The publisher has not shared the reason behind this change.

Original story follows...

DC's new Superman, Jonathan Kent, steps into his father's proverbial shoes (and his actual mantle) on July 13 with Superman: Son of Kal-El #1. Written by Tom Taylor with art by John Timms, the new ongoing comic book series Superman: Son of Kal-El replaces the long-running Superman title and is now what DC calls the "main Superman title" in its line of Superman titles (more on that in a bit).

"Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He's traveled the galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father, Clark Kent, could no longer be Superman," reads DC's description of Superman: Son of Kal-El #1. "There is a hole in the Legion's history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon."
