[Book News] DC to Publish Weekly Series of Superhero Comic Strips

dccomicswednesdaycomicsDC Comics has announced they will be publishing a new weekly series called the Wednesday Comics, which will be delivered to comic shops every Wednesday for a period of 12 weeks on a newsprint format. Each publication contains multiple strips of famous DC comics such as Superman, Batman, The Green Lantern and many more, telling 15 stories in total.

When asked about the temporary return to the newspaper format, DC Art Director Mark Chiarello said “There’s a certain romance to the history of the big old Sunday funnies that I wanted to try to recapture in Wednesday Comics, why not dust off the format and have a little fun?”

The weekly series kicks off July 8 at $3.99 for each publication. If you are only interested in the Superman strip and are afraid of inky fingers, USA Today will publish all 12 Superman strips online for your viewing pleasure.

  1. That’s far too expensive for weekly DC printings on a format that can’t even be kept in mint. There’s a reason pubs quit using newspaper print.
