But it’s all change at DC Comics! We have the new Breaking Point story featuring Deathstroke by James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham with new covers by Ian Churchill replacing these listings.

James Bonny and Tyler Kirkham worked on Deathstroke for DC Comics before the DC Rebirth. Indeed, at London Super Comic Con this past weekend, Kirkham said that as far as he was concerned, Deathstroke was a title that didn’t need Rebirthing, and he was quite happy with the New 52 version. Might this be a way of revisiting a little of that New 52 Deathstroke spirit?

Here are the new solicits:

SUPERMAN #31. Lois Lane is after the interview of a lifetime. The subject of her Daily Planet article: Deathstroke the Terminator! Determined to get “inside the mind of a killer,” Lois follows a trail of bodies across the globe and comes face to face with the ultimate assassin. But the encounter turns deadly and, with Superman half a world away, the interview of a lifetime could cost Lois Lane her life!

SUPERMAN #32. Deathstroke has come to Metropolis…and he’s got his sights set on Superman. Slade Wilson gives the Man of Steel an impossible choice: maintain his ideals and let the love of his life die, or save Lois Lane and become a killer himself. Will Deathstoke push Superman to his breaking point?
