Why Did Superman #712 Get the Axe?



This week’s issue of Superman was originally intended to tell the story of Superman teaming up with a young Muslim hero named Sharif in Los Angeles. Instead, it’s a story about Krypto the Superdog that was originally set to be published as part of Kurt Busiek’s run five years ago that was pulled for legal reasons surrounding the rights to Superboy.

DC’s official explanation is that the story “didn’t work,” but today on ComicsAlliance, I explain why I don’t buy that reasoning, and offer up a theory of my own.

And now you know why I turned off the comments.
