What a week! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to sit back and read some comics. The weekend is finally here, and the world can relax and rest once more — but the comics industry has been busy too, you know, and the last seven days have seen a flurry of comics-based news and announcements fly past at high speed.

ComicsAlliance has got your back, though: when it comes to comics, we never slow down, so here’s a look back and just what’s been going on. New comics, new stories, new podcasts, new art being made — it’s all part of the ComicsAlliance Weekender!

‘New Super-Man’ Is Introducing New Bat-Man New Wonder-Woman In August

New Super-Man #2, DC Comics

The upcoming New Super-Man title has been one of the most interesting pieces of DC's Rebirth event ever since it was announced, and as we move closer to its debut this summer, it just keeps getting more intriguing. I mean, we already knew that we'd be following the adventures of Kenan Kong, a young man from Shanghai who gains the powers of Superman, but now, it seems that he's not the only New character we're going to be meeting.

As revealed today, the second issue of New Super-Man will find Kong face-to-face with two more hyphenated heroes with familiar names: New Bat-Man and New Wonder-Woman.

ICYMI: Did ‘Batman/Superman’ Give Us Our First Look At The New ‘Super-Man’?

New-Super-Man-Featured

DC's current “The Final Days of Superman” crossover, taking place across the entire line of Superman titles, has produced some really great comics. Written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Doug Mahnke and Mikel Janín and others, the crossover has Superman putting his affairs in order ahead of his impending death due to a terminal condition he recently developed.

The most recent installment of the crossover in Batman/Superman sees Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman on the trail of an imposter Superman who believes himself to be the real deal, and their trail leads them to China. Once there, they’re confronted by The Great Ten, and we get our first glimpse of a new hero we’ll be seeing more of very soon as part of DC Rebirth.

The event was introduced by DC All Access host Tiffany Smith, with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio and chief creative officer and Rebirth chief architect Geoff Johns introducing and interviewing the creative teams as they joined them on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Clark Kent Hits The Presidential Debates In ‘Superman’ #48 [Exclusive Preview]

Superman #48, DC Comics

I've said it before, but I honestly don't remember a time when the core Superman books were all as good as they are right now. The long-running story of Superman losing his powers and running around punching out crime in jeans and a t-shirt has been a fantastic breath of fresh air for the character, and it's resulting in some pretty amazing stories.

And now, as if the pro wrestling storyline wasn't enough, Gene Luen Yang (recently named the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature) and Howard Porter are taking Superman to the presidential debates in Superman #48. Check out a preview!
