Brian Michael Bendis Ending SUPERMAN And ACTION COMICS Run This December

Brian Michael Bendis will be wrapping up his run on both the main Superman title and Action Comics this December according to the latest DC Comics solicitations.

Back in June, Brian Michael Bendis teased that he was nearing his run on Superman but DC Comics fans didn't really have a clear idea of just how close Bendis was to wrapping up his story.   "I'm heading towards the end of my run on Superman, so I've been more reflective on it," teased Bendis in June. "And it's — I'll never be more grateful than I got to heal my near-death experience through Superman, and get through this pandemic. No matter what's going on with this world, I get to spend a few hours each day with Superman. That's a gift."

Bendis went on to caution that his final issue was still a ways off.   "It's sooooo far away. Kind of a non-headline. Don't even worry about it today."

Now, the recently released December solicitations from DC Comics have revealed that Bendis' final issue of Superman will be released on December 15, while his final Action Comics issue will drop a week later on December 22.  Bendis made his DC Comics debut in Action Comics #1000 (June 2018) and relaunched Superman with a #1 issue in July 2018. Bendis had written for Marvel for over 17 years before jumping ship to DC back in 2018. 

At this point, Bendis is still set to write his ongoing Legion of Super-Heroes title with artist Ryan Sook and Wade Von Grawbadger but what other titles Bendis starts in January (or potentially sooner) remains to be seen.  It's possible that the second part of DC FanDome (which kicks off later today) might reveal more on Bendis' future plans .
