DC is doing everything it can to own March 2021. With so many new titles and mini-series starting up in March, you might just need to set the whole month aside to take it all in.

The Man of Steel Stars DC’s New Superman: Red & Blue Anthology Mini-Series!

Debut issue includes stories written by John Ridley, art by Steve Lieber, and more!

When you see a red and blue streak in the sky above Metropolis,
it’s not a bird…it’s not a plane…
it’s Superman!

In the spirit of DC’s iconic Eisner Award-winning Batman: Black & White anthology series, DC proudly announces Superman: Red & Blue. Anew six-issue DC mini-series presenting fresh new visions of the Man of Steel. These six sissies will feature an incredible slate of comics’ most exciting and innovative storytellers. They will be creating comics pared back to Superman’s two signature colors of red and blue (magenta and cyan for the color nerds)!

Around the world, everyone knows that when they see a red and blue streak in the sky, it’s not a bird…it’s not a plane…it’s Superman!

Superman; Red & Blue #1

To start things off in March’s Superman: Red & Blue #1, Academy Award-winning writer of DC Future State: The Next Batman John Ridley joins artist Clayton Henry (Batman/Superman) to tell a story of Clark Kent as he confronts a villain who still haunts him. This will be a story that shows what Superman can mean to a whole country. Then, Brandon Easton (DC Future State’s Mister Miracle) and Steve Lieber (Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen) take readers to the streets of Metropolis. This story will show how one hero can mean so much to an individual in pain.

Plus, writer/artist Wes Craig (Deadly Class) tells a tale of Superman’s early days and the man who inspired him to become the hero he is today! In addition, Marguerite Bennett (DC Future State: Kara Zor-El, Superwoman) and artist Jill Thompson (The Sandman, Black Orchid) give us a tale of teenage Clark Kent. While Dan Watters and Dani, the team behind Coffin Bound, bring us an outlandish fable about what happens when all colors are stolen!

Superman: Red & Blue #1 (of 6), features 40 pages of stories by Marguerite Bennett, Wes Craig, Dani, Brandon Easton, Clayton Henry, Steve Lieber, John Ridley, Jill Thompson and Dan Watters. It retails at $5.99 with a cover by Gary Frank and variant covers by Lee Bermejo and Yoshitaka Amano. Superman: Red & Blue will ship monthly beginning on March 9 in DC’s Prestige Format binding.
