Look out, Dark Avengers, Hulk, and Secret Invasion: Wednesday Comics just jumped to the top of the pile.
DC Comics announced today that John Arcudi and Lee Bermejo’s Wednesday Comics feature starring Superman will be serialized in USA Today. The initial strip will appear in the July 8th print edition of the paper, with the following installments appearing online at USAToday.com.
For those of you not keeping score, this is the highest selling newspaper in America, with a circulation of 2.11 million, even narrowly beating out the Wall Street Journal. These strips will come out each week on USA Today’s site the same date as Wednesday Comics hits the stores, and the online strips will be promoted in the print edition.
“It just makes sense, no?” wrote Alex Segura in DC’s blog, the Source. “A weekly series created to remind readers of the joys of standalone comics and the newspaper strips many of us grew up on debuting in the pages of one of the most well-known and widely-read newspapers ever.”
