With the wrap-up of writer Joe Keatinge's multi-artist "Strange Visitor" epic in Adventures of Superman last week, the series is nearing a full year of weekly, digital Superman stories. It's easily been the best, most daring Superman title DC Comics has been publishing in 2013 and 2014 (and not just because Superman gets to wear his real costume in it).

We like it so much, Adventures of Superman ended up on our list of the best comic books published in 2013.
We thought it would be a good idea to look back at the series so far, so I've compiled the following list of stories that readers unfamiliar with the series should go back and catch up with if they want the high points of the past year. At a dollar a pop, they're all well worth it.

Universal's EVP (Executive Vice President, not electronic voice phenomenon) of Production Jon Mone and Creative Executive Jay Polidoro will reportedly oversee the project, with Ben Kim developing on the K/O side of things.

Kind of.

It appears that The Walking Dead won't be the only indie comics hit to enjoy new life as a critically acclaimed television series with big-time talent behind the scenes. At least on paper, a new TV series based on IDW Publishings Locke & Key looks like a surefire hit, with Mark Romanek in talks to direct the pilot written by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' Josh Friedman.
