According to messages seen by ComicBook.com DC has issued instructions to Retailers stating the need to destroy incoming copies of Superman #14 and Supergirl #33.
DC will send replacements for both issues out and they will have different covers.
Comic book collectors ears will be wagging at the news. Two things might happen; there might now be a glut of Superman #14 and Supergirl #33 as retailers get twice the volume for free or even order more expecting some interest or these variants with the ‘to be destroyed’ covers become rare and highly collectable.
Why is DC destroying Superman and Supergirl comics
It’s all due to timing.
The covers for both Superman #13 and Supergirl #33 were shown months in advance. This is standard for comics.
However, the contents of the comic books have not kept up due to editorial changes, storyline changes, layout changes, and so forth. The result is the action on the front cover for these comic books have no relevance to the contents of the comic books.
What do the covers show?
The original Superman comic has Lux Luthor trying to tempt Lois Lane. It looks like a scene from Pandora’s Box. In the background, Superman is flying up, smashing into his logo and looking on.
The text reads;
The Last Temptation of Lois Lane!
The original Supergirl comic depicts a battle with the new Brainiac. There is a swarm of robotic bugs and tendrils around Supergirl’s arms.
The text reads;
Nothing Can Stop The New Brainiac
