By David Hyde Friday, February 11th, 2011
After all the excitement for REIGN OF DOOMSDAY we received after sharing Kenneth Rocafort’s awesome cover to ACTION COMICS #901, we know you’re anxious for more. Click below for this month’s Superman solicits: ac_cv901 ACTION COMICS #901 Written by PAUL CORNELL Art and Cover by KENNETH ROCAFORT 1:10 Variant cover by DAN JURGENS We can’t tell you much about this issue without ruining some of ACTION COMICS #900’s surprises, but suffice it to say, Doomsday’s back – and you’ve never seen him like this before! Doomsday’s first appearance brought about the “Reign of the Supermen,” where four characters – Superboy, Steel, Cyborg Superman, and Eradicator – came onto the scene to try to fill Superman’s shoes. Now, with “Reign of Doomsday,” it looks like Superman might need to fill their shoes! On sale MAY 25 • 32 pg, FC $2.99 US • RATED T sm_cv711 SUPERMAN #711 Written by J.
