DC Comics announced this morning that the Superman strip from Wednesday Comics will be serialized by USA Today beginning July 8.
The move reinforces the nostalgic connection between the weekly miniseries and the heyday of the newspaper comics page. Officially announced in March, Wednesday Comics will feature 15 one-page stories told over 12 weeks in a broadsheet format.
Creators include Neil Gaiman, Brian Azzarello, Paul Pope, Mike Allred, Joe Kubert, Kyle Baker and Dave Gibbons.
According to DC’s The Source blog, John Arcudi and Lee Bermejo’s Superman strip will debut in USA Today’s print edition on July 8 and then appear each subsequent Wednesday on the newspaper’s website. Each weekly online installment will be promoted in the newspaper.
Update: USA Today now has posted its own article about the serialization.
