    The DC site says that the first of the Returns tie-in comics was released on April 5. This is a mistake, right? - I would have seen people talking about it if it had been out for over a month, and I was pretty sure all of the comics were coming out in June.

    If that's the case, what's the real release date?

    Do you know where I'd be able to find these comics (once they come out, of course)? I'm not even sure if we have a local comic shop. I could order them online, but I don't know where to order them from. Particularly since if I'm ordering online I'd prefer to order all four at once and save on shipping (except that I'd have to get two-day or overnight delivery to get them before the movie comes out and that'd cost extra).

    So if anyone could tell me if any regular bookstores might have them or where a good place to order them online is, I'd be grateful.

    Barnes and Noble gets in comics, but I'm not sure if they'll get these in. They will probably be released in Trade Paperback format though, with all 4 issues in a single softcover book. I'm sure B&N would get them there. If you want the single issues, wait till they're all out and try Ebay if you dont mind buying from another person, or MileHighComics.com if you want them from somewhere more...official.

    I don't mind where I buy them from. I was just hoping for a place with a good shipping policy (that didn't cost an arm and a leg). I'll check out milehigh, first and then decide where to go from there.

    no, there are 4 single issues, although they're giant sized, I believe...I havent checked the site since they were first announced though, so I could be wrong

    EDIT: I just checked, and there are 4 40 page single issues, one each week in June

    That'll tell you if you have a local shop. As for online stores, there are two I recommend.

    The art and the covers look great, i'll for sure pick it up.
     
  13. I picked the first issue up, I like the artwork but the story is not so interesting as it is just an adaptation of the Krypton scenes from STMP, with extra detail. Nicely done as far as movie adaptations go, and a nice homage to the 1978 film, but otherwise not highly interesting for those who remember the Donner films.
