Stevens Album Art Issue Resolved

The Sufjan Stevens Illinoise cover art story has resolved itself with a pretty reasonable agreement amenable to both sides. The first releases will go out with Superman; future releases will not. It looks like DC Comics also wants to make it pretty clear that they did not file against the release of the original album. The "effective cease and desist" came from the label's lawyers stopping the action in fear of DC's reaction were they to be interested; turns out they very much were.
