Don't know if this has been listed here but I saw it on the Comics reporter site:

Quote
Titan is licensing an 84-page Superman publication from DC to sell in the UK, Superman Legends, initially featuring recent Grant Morrison, Jim Lee and Jeph Loeb serials from different North American comic books.

According to Wikipedia, the first issue was published in March 2007.

The series looks pretty neat:

Like crispy snax, I never have any trouble locating comics here, but then I live in London, where there are several comic stores: Forbidden Planet, Pow! and the beautifully-named They Walk Among Us to name but a few. I imagine these comics, which are available at ordinary newsstands, are intended for a nationwide and perhaps more casual audience.

Submitting the UK to Azzarello's "For Tomorrow" arc? 
I feel pity for them.

I think one of Busiek's arcs would have been a better move.

But at least they get Grant Morrison.

I guess they felt that Jim Lee would sell more copies, even if it was one of the most boring stories ever.

Yup, and Alan Moore, Garth Ennis and pretty much anyone who's ever written Hellblazer. It would be pretty good if DC commissioned a Superman title produced only by British people.
