Superman hasn't fared too well as a British comic in recent times, with any title starring him tending to be short lived. However, that hasn't deterred London based Titan Comics to have another go. Today, The Man of Steel No.1 arrived in newsagents, consisting of 76 pages for £3.99.
The comic has replaced Titan's Batman/Superman comic on the schedule, and the indicia actually has it down as "Batman/Superman Vol.3 Issue No.1". No doubt this is to help suppliers continue to order the comic by keeping it on their system with the previous title.
The Man of Steel No.1 reprints the first three issues of the American DC Comic of the same name. As this was a 6 issue mini-series in the States it means that the story arc will conclude with the second issue of the UK version. In America, the story then continued into Superman and Action Comics. Whether the UK Man of Steel comic continues to call itself that or revamps again into a Superman title remains to be seen. Things are never straightforward in that respect with Titan Comics!
