To celebrate the launch of It’s A Stampede!, every day for the next year I will be presenting a totally informative, yet totally useless fact under the banner heading: ‘On this day in geekdom’.

Yep, that’s 365 facts!

Here’s today’s slice of geekdom…

August 24th – On this day in 2011, DC Comics publishes Superman Beyond issue #0. The comic is a spin-off from the popular cartoon/comic series, Batman Beyond. The Comixology preview reads: “From the hit comic series BATMAN BEYOND comes the adventures of The Man of Tomorrow in the DC Universe of the future. As Superman feels his super-powers beginning to decline, The Last Son of Krypton is called back into action to stop a villain more powerful than any he’s faced before. This looks like a job for Superman Beyond!”

More tomorrow…
