DC Comics announced today via their blog, The Source the debut of a new one-shot based in the same continuity as "Batman Beyond."

Written and illustrated by longtime Marvel creators Tom DeFalco, Ron Frenz and Sal Buscema, "Superman Beyond" is set to debut in August under a cover by Dustin Nguyen. The series is notable not only for spinning off a new title from DC's well-received "Batman Beyond," but also for being the first work at the publisher by both DeFalco and Buscema in decades.

DC's official description of the one-shot follows:

Spinning out of the fan favorite BATMAN BEYOND series come the adventures of The Man of Tomorrow in the DC Universe of the future! An aging Kal-El is called back into action to stop a villain more powerful than he’s ever faced - all while his own super powers are starting to fade.
