DCU in 2011: The Reign of Doomsday
Mon, 11/15/2010 - 3:35pm
Doomsday is coming back.
A few of you drew this conclusion from last week's tease, and we'll confirm here that the Kryptonian killing machine will return to Earth early next year - and you don't need me to tell you that's never a good sign for the heroes of the DCU.
Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with:
Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
Part 3: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #55
Part 4: SUPERBOY #6
Part 5: ... ????
"Doomsday is one of the most popular villains in Superman's canon of foes," says Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras, "He injects a feeling of dread and chaos into the DC Universe that few other characters can."
In other news, one of the exciting pieces of news to come out of last week's DC Digital Store launch is the launch of some amazing back list titles in digital format - including The Death and Return of Superman. And if you haven't read those stories before, you might want to do it sooner rather than later. Y'know, just sayin'...
