Is the current Superman: Man of Tomorrow title in canon or out of canon?

Sorry, I'm not currently keeping up with the current run of Superman comics until Bendis leaves so I'm just wondering.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

As I understand it it is out of Canon, it stands on its own terms. I'm so out of step with what is coming out I don't even know where it's sold, who it's intended for, or how long it is intended to run - mini series perhaps?

Still, from what little I understand it has had some reasonably good reception and word of mouth.

It was originally meant for the DC 100 Page Giant series, that were exclusive (then not exclusive) to Walmart. Now, it's digitally only (until it isn't). I have also heard good things about it, though I haven't read it fully, yet. As to it being canon, the story comes across as a contemporary Superman tale, with Superman, Clark Kent, Lois Lane (they're married) in standard form, a stock tale if you will, but if the reception continues to be strong, it'll become canon, as has been done in the past.
