Popverse's top stories of the day

Comics like Batman '66 and Superman '78 follow a fascinating trend over at DC Comics. They're comic book adaptations of movies and TV shows that are, themselves, adaptations of comic books. Now, the trend continues, as DC is unveiling plans for a comic book based on animated series My Adventures of Superman, due in shops this June.

My Adventures with Superman debuted on Adult Swim in July of 2023. After a successful first go-around, the show was renewed for a season 2 in September of the same year (as reported by Deadline). It stars Jack Quaid as Clark Kent, Alice Lee as Lois Lane, and Ishmel Sahid as Jimmy Olsen. A brighter, more Silver Age take on the Daily Planet crew, My Adventures with Superman featured writing by Josie Campbell, who will also write the comic adaptation.

"This story is one we actually talked about in the writers room, but we didn’t have space for it in season one,” says Campbell, who is also a producer on the show. “So get ready for romance, comedy, super-powers, Jimmy Olsen talking a lot about how he’s super-rich now, and all the goodness of the show bundled into this action-packed miniseries."

But just what will the story be about? Well, details are scant in the press release DC sent out on March 6, but we do know that the comic will "[pick] up from the explosive end of season one, serving as a bridge to the highly anticipated season two."

Also revealed in the press release, and perhaps most exciting for regular DC comic readers, is the fact that artist Pablo M. Collar will be providing the art. The pencil behind standouts like DC’s Are You Afraid of Darkseid, DC’s Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun, and more, Collar brings heaps of experience from all over the DCU into My Adventures with Superman.

"Superman has always been the reference and the symbol of all that’s good in us," says Collar, who jumped at the chance to work on the comic, "and being part of something like this is a dream come true, and the whole team will give it our best."

My Adventures with Superman #1 heads to comic shops June 4, 2024. You can stream the first season of the show now on Max.
