The news comes courtesy of a press release from DC, which promises that readers will, with reaffirmed conviction, believe a man can fly thanks to Superman ’78. Penned by Rob Venditti, the writer behind the company’s recent run of Hawkman stories, and penciled by Batman ’66 artist Wilfredo Torres, Superman ’78 is touted as a book created around “stories set within the world Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve created in Superman: The Movie.

The series’ exact place in the franchise timeline is a little fuzzy, but director Richard Donner’s work seems to be the cornerstone of the universe, implying that the comic might take place outside of the continuity presented in Superman III and IV.

Clark Kent’s cinematic history isn’t the only avenue being explored by DC at the moment. Alongside the premiere of Superman ’78, the comic book company has also announced a second series, Batman ’89, which will expand on Tim Burton and Michael Keaton’s iconic take on Gotham’s Dark Knight. Both stories are scheduled to debut on July 27, 2021 as digital offerings before making their way to comic book stands the following month.

With the combined nostalgia of two beloved franchises behind them, these stories are sure to fly off the shelves.
