Weekend Headlines - Superman Comic Book Update

July 5's Superman #26 has been changed to now feature a new one-off story by guest creators Michael Moreci and Scott Godlewski. Moreci is an alum of the DC Writer's Workshop program, but no reason was given for this change to the originally-solicited plans.

As part of this change, the originally-intended stories for Superman #26 through #29 have been pushed back one issue number, with writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason reamining as the regular series writers.

Here is the updated solicitation for Superman #26 through #29
