In honor of John Romita, Jr.’s first-ever work for DC Comics on Superman #32, Midtown Comics is excited to announce a signing at our Downtown location on Thursday, July 17th!

Superman #32
Writer: Geoff Johns • Artist: John Romita, Jr., Klaus Janson

“THE MAN OF TOMORROW” chapter 1! A NEW ERA for SUPERMAN begins as Geoff Johns takes the reigns – and he’s joined by the legendary super-talent of John Romita, Jr. in his first-ever work for DC Comics as they introduce Ulysses, the Man of Tomorrow, into the Man of Steel’s life. This strange visitor shares many of Kal-El’s experiences, including having been rocketed from a world with no future. Prepare yourself for a run full of new heroes, new villains and new mysteries! Plus, Perry White offers Clark a chance to return to The Daily Planet!

This issue is also offered as a combo pack edition with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.

Combo pack edition: $4.99 US

Midtown Comics will also be selling a number of incentive covers on the day of the signing!

If that’s the case, you’re probably curious where you should start. Fear not, dear friend! I am here to show you the wonders of the Man of Steel, having been a fan for as long as I can remember. Let’s take a trip into a world where a man can fly, and do things that inspire us to be better.
