Clark Kent Babysits Sugar And Spike In ‘Adventures Of Superman’ Chapter 42 [Preview]

Adventures of Superman 42 Main
DC Comics

DC’s digital-first line has provided an outlet for a lot of episodic, unconstrained storytelling starring characters from Teen Titans Go!, Batman ’66, the Batman Beyond universe and more, but this Monday’s Adventures of Superman Chapter 42 will take things a step further as Clark Kent spends a day babysitting Sheldon Mayer’s Sugar and Spike in a new story by writer Fabian Nicieza and artists Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur.

A standout non-superhero series published by DC from 1956-1971, Sugar and Spike followed the misadventures of two toddlers who communicated via “baby talk.” Think Rugrats, only 20+ years earlier and without Chucky whining all the time. While generally good-natured, Sugar and Spike weren’t ones to let adults get in the way of their plans, and it seems they still aren’t. Not even a superpowered adult.

From DC’s official solicitation info:

When Sugar and Spike need a babysitter, this looks like a job for–Clark Kent? But when an explosion at Star Labs threatens the city, Clark must find a way to balance his newfound responsibilities with his duty to Metropolis as the Man of Steel!

Sugar and Spike have had cameos in DC titles before — most recently in The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #4 — but it’s been some time since they’ve come up against a Kryptonian… or at least Superman’s costume like in Sugar and Spike #83.

You can get an early look at Adventures of Superman Chapter 42 featuring Sugar and Spike below.
