Issue Notes

Issue number on cover, but not in indicia.

This issue was solicited to contain a story written by Max Landis with art by Francis Manapul. That story was pulled from the print edition before it was printed and replaced with a Batman reprint. But it must have been done at the last minute, because it was contained in the digital edition on ComiXology (and the Batman reprint was not). It was an 8-page Superman and Lois Lane story entitled "Driver's Seat" and was positioned between the Deathstroke and Atomic Knights stories. DC later removed and replaced this story in the digital copy as well. The story was eventually printed in Action Comics Special (DC, 2018 series) #1.
