DC Comics Canceling Gay Superman's Solo Run After Failure to Sell

It looks like woke superman is now broke superman.

The new age of DC Comics is proving to be a flop as its flagship character (or at least his son) fails to attract readers and sinks into the mud in terms of sales.


According to CBR.com, the news was broken during a New York Comic Con panel that Jon Kent’s solo run will end at issue #18. Now, he’ll be moved into a different miniseries:

During the “DC’s Superman Panel” at New York Comic Con, the publisher revealed Superman: Son of Kal-El #18 will be the final issue of the series. Upon its completion in December, DC will launch a new six-issue miniseries, Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent, written by Tom Taylor and featuring art by Clayton Henry. “Jon will finally get his chance to take on the man who is responsible for kidnapping and torturing him, Ultraman. The Superman of Earth-2, Val-Zod, will also play a major part in the 6-issue miniseries arriving in comic shops in early 2023,” DC teased of the new miniseries.

Tom Taylor, the man who writes the comic for superman’s climate alarmist, pro-immigration, homosexual son, said that the new series is thanks to the fantastic response of fans to Jon and Superman.

Only, the response hasn’t at all been “fantastic.” In fact, it’s been abysmal according to the charts. DC Comics stopped publishing its sales numbers after its new social justice-focused comics began drowning. As I reported in January, the initial debut of “Son of Kal-El” sold only 68,000 copies putting it at number 17. By the third issue, it had only sold 34,000, putting it at number 77.


It’s unclear what sales look like due to DC hiding those numbers but if they’re ending the run at 18 issues then it’s likely far worse.

The goal here is to reinvigorate the character with a new first issue of a comic series. Since the message comes first for DC Comics, it’s imperative that this new Superman become the norm. Displaying numbers that look favorable to it is integral and first issues typically sell well as collectors will purchase these copies in hopes that they’ll appreciate in value.

This is a desperation move, and while the first issue may very well see a bump it’s unlikely that it will do solid numbers after.

Meanwhile, Eric July’s “Rippaverse,” a comic series that focuses on story, character development, and not caving to the demands of woke culture, has become a sensation with its campaign reaching $3.7 million and issues already going out.
