Bendis Off Superman In December

Bendis Off Superman In December

Brian Michael Bendis is off Superman and Action Comics as of December, as DC Comics has released its December solicits.

Bendis is still on Legion and Young Justice, so no word yet if he will be tackling anything else, though there has been speculation on Twitter he might take on Batman.

Prior to the coronavirus, Superman and Action Comics were selling pretty low for the title, in the low to mid-30s, so news of Bendis departing the books isn't surprising.

DC has since stopped using Diamond for distribution, so estimates and numbers are now hard to come by (via Comichron). 

Check out the solicits below for Bendis' last issues of Superman and Action Comics
