Issue Notes

This issue is a variant of Superman (DC, 2006 series) #712 [Direct].

This issue went on sale two weeks after the solicited date and with new content. This issue was solicited to have the next part of the "Grounded" storyline, but DC announced via a press release on 2011-06-21 (the day before this issue shipped) that there would be a fill-in issue substituted for the solicited contents, saying that 'DC Comics determined that the previously solicited story did not work within the "Grounded" storyline.'

Two covers were done for this issue; one featuring Krypto over the Kent farm, and this variant one featuring Superboy and Krypto (10 issues for 1 issue mixture).

"Printed by Quad/Graphics, Montreal, QC, Canada. 6/10/11."
