New Anthology Series ‘Superman: Red & Blue’ Follows In ‘Batman: Black & White’ Tradition
by Olly MacNamee
DC Comics have already announced a Batman anthology series comic in 2021 and now it’s the turn of the Big Boy Scout himself to get his own anthology series too, with the announcement of Superman: Red & Blue. A six part series, and following also on the footsteps of Batman: Black and White, the new book will feature stories and strips by some of comics’ finest and all presented in just black, white, blue and red.
Set to debut in March 2021, look out for creators such as John Ridley, Clayton Henry and Marguerite Bennett and more contributing:
“To start things off in March’s Superman: Red & Blue #1, Academy Award-winning writer of DC Future State: The Next Batman John Ridley joins artist Clayton Henry (Batman/Superman) to tell a story of Clark Kent as he confronts a villain who still haunts him, in a story that shows what Superman can mean to a whole country. Then, Brandon Easton (DC Future State’s Mister Miracle) and Steve Lieber (Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen) take readers to the streets of Metropolis to show how one hero can mean so much to an individual in pain.
Plus, writer/artist Wes Craig (Deadly Class) tells a tale of Superman’s early days and the man who inspired him to become the hero he is today! And Marguerite Bennett (DC Future State: Kara Zor-El, Superwoman) and artist Jill Thompson (The Sandman, Black Orchid) give us a tale of teenage Clark Kent, while Dan Watters and Dani, the team behind Coffin Bound, bring us an outlandish fable about what happens when all colors are stolen!”
Superman: Red & Blue #1 (prestige format) is out Tuesday 9th March from DC Comics
