Prepare for the Last Stand of New Krypton

What is the LAST STAND OF NEW KRYPTON? Well, it's basically New Krypton's worst nightmare come to life, as Brainiac attacks the planet, determined to recapture the city of Kandor.
But General Zod has prepared for this moment since Brainiac first attacked the original Krypton. Only problem? Zod's plan to save New Krypton will mean the destruction of the future.
So it's up to Superman, Supergirl, Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes to save the people of New Krypton and ensure the Legion won’t be wiped from the future’s existence. Good luck! Or, to quote editor Matt Idelson:
“This is the story that ties together tons of threads that have run through all the Super-books up to now, clearing the decks for the war we all knew was coming. And I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting months to see Brainiac restored to his full, horrific glory. And at last, we’ll get to see Superboy interact on an ongoing basis with the rest of the Superbooks’ characters.”
LAST STAND is a three-issue miniseries, weighing in at 30 story pages each, from writers James Robinson and Sterling Gates and artist Pete Woods. The first issue sports an amazing Andy Kubert cover and kicks off the latest chapter in the New Krypton saga, "Brainiac & The Legion of Super-Heroes," which we teased right here not long ago. “Brainiac & the LOSH” is an eight-part story (plus an epilogue and a prologue) that will run in LAST STAND, SUPERGIRL, SUPERMAN, and because you demanded it, ADVENTURE COMICS. Secrets will be revealed, loyalties tested and would-be lovers will be reunited—for the first time? And, knowing that all signs are pointing to an epic WAR OF THE SUPERMEN, why not hop aboard now?
SUPERMAN: LAST STAND OF NEW KRYPTON hits in March.
