DC has released further details of its forthcoming War of the Supermen miniseries. The series will consist of four issues that are set over a time-frame of 100 minutes. All four issues are written by Sterling Gates (Supergirl) and James Robinson (Starman), and will be released in May.
Superman group editor Matt Idelson says,
“The war between New Krypton and Earth has been the worst kept secret in comics the last several months”
“The number of mocking ‘Wouldn’t a world of supermen defeat Earth in five minutes?’ questions I’ve been assaulted with have undone years of therapy. Now, thank Freud, the time for secrets is over, as the two sides are finally going to war!
“And it’s going to last a lot longer than five minutes – 100, to be exact, told in 25 minute increments.”
Each issue will represent 25 minutes of the war, with Free Comic Book Day’s War of the Supermen #0 acting as a prologue to the event.
