Thanks to Newsarama, we’ve got our first look at the January Superman-related titles, including Adventure Comics #6, the last issue of Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul’s run (sob). As you can see at right, they’re going out with a bang (dinosaurs?), and there’s even a hint in the solicitation that they may be back on the title in the future!
ADVENTURE COMICS #6
Written by Geoff Johns
Art and covers by Francis Manapul
Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul say goodbye (for now) to Superboy with a spectacular 30-page issue! Ever since Superboy returned from the grave, he has been obsessed with Lex Luthor, believing that there must be some good in the master villain somewhere. So for Luthor, it’s time to put up or shut up. With Superman off planet, it’s time to do some good for the planet earth. Superboy is willing to do what it takes to make Lex’s dreams come true, but what Superboy will discover is that one man’s dreams, are another man’s nightmares.
Retailers please note: This issue will ship with two covers.

I know I’ve said this before, but can. Not. Wait! Especially for an extra length tale!
