Orson Scott Card ‘Superman’ scuppered

SupermancardSlated for April 29, the Superman story, “written by noted homophobe — sorry, ‘gay marriage opponent’ — Orson Scott Card will not see digital nor print release as originally planned following the departure of artist Chris Sprouse from the project,” says Graeme  McMillan in Wired.

It’s a, “digital anthology of 10-page Superman short stories featuring the works of various creators that will be collected in print issues beginning in May,” says Brian Truitt, USA Today.

Fans and retailers called for boycotts of the print comic, and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender activist website AllOut.org collected more than 16,000 signatures on an online petition asking DC to drop Card from Adventures of Superman, says Truitt.
