In case you haven’t already heard, yesterday details were announced for DC’s Free Comic book Day Superman Issue.The issue will include a reprint of the first part of Geoff Johns’ and Richard Donner’s Action Comics story arc, “Last Son of Krypton”.
In addition, the issue will also include a sneak peek of the upcoming new superman series starting in June by writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Lee. As of right now there is no name for that new series but a lot of people have been speculating that it will be entitled Man of Steel. We’ll just have to wait and see this Free Comic Book Day, May 4th, 2013.
On Friday, May 11th we decided to head down to Midtown Comics for their Jim Lee and Geoff Johns signing. In order to be admitted, people needed to purchase DC Comics’ recently released Justice League Vol. 1: Origin and only the first 200 people in line were allowed to get things signed. The signing was at 6:00 PM that evening, but fortunately we got there and got on line at 12:00 PM. Waiting on line for 6 hours wasn’t too bad. We had plenty of people there to help the time go quickly.
The 6 hour wait was definitely worth it. We were able to get a couple of things signed. Check out these links to see what we got — Drewtos’ stuff, King Alex’s stuff. Midtown Comics is awesome for setting this event up. It was great being able to meet two of the biggest names in DC. Check out our pics below.
