DC Comics has canceled its “woke” green agenda-friendly “Superman: Son of Kal-El” series as sales for the gay title tank.
The company announced the gay Superman comic was getting the chop during the New York Comic-Con.
When it launched last year, the controversial comic made headlines over its “woke” agenda, leading to some initial sales.
It features a bisexual Superman who fights climate deniers and lectures readers about left-wing issues.
However, the series, by writer Tom Taylor, has not stood the test of time, with sales of the comic now virtually non-existent.
The series will end after only 18 issues, according to Bounding Into Comics.
The final issue of the comic hits stands in December
In January, Bounding Into Comics reported the dismal sales of some of the title’s early issues:
Previous estimates for the book’s sales showed it was in the gutter with Comichron claiming the first book of Superman: Son of Kal-El only sold 68,800 issues back in July when it first debuted.
That was good for the 17th best selling comic of the month.
The most recent data compiled by Comichron reveals that the book’s third issue only sold 34,000 copies in September.
That was good for the 77th best selling comic of the month.
That 68,800 number for the first issue is even worse when you compare it to previous Superman #1 issues.
When the series was rebooted when Brian Michael Bendis took over the title back in 2018, Superman #1 sold 133,700 copies.
In comparison, other recent Superman #1 editions sold 118,434 copies, 105,380 copies, and 118,376 copies.
The “woke” Superman title bombed so badly that it fell out of the top-selling 50 comics by its third issue.
Superman became a serious target for the “woke” agenda several years ago.
It got so bad that artist Gabe Eltaeb quit DC in 2021 when the company decided to sanitize Superman.
The company removed “America” from Superman’s longtime slogan, “truth, justice, and the American way.”
Eltaeb has since joined writer Eric July for a new “anti-woke” line of comics called the “Rippaverse” comics.
Their issue no. 1 of “Isom” earned $3.7 million in sales.
Eltaeb was thrilled to see the end of the gay Superman series.
“1 year ago, I stood on principle and left @DCComics for their U.S. hating book by SJW narcissist Tom Taylor. I win,” Eltaeb wrote on social media.
