By Alex Nagorski Monday, April 29th, 2013

Welcome back to another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at THE MOVEMENT #1 and ACTION COMICS #20.

This week sees the launch of the eagerly anticipated and all-new ongoing monthly series THE MOVEMENT. Set in Coral City, THE MOVEMENT centers around a group of young people with extraordinary abilities, who take matters of justice into their own hands after the corrupt local police department is exposed. But how will the rest of the world react to these teens? And with so much power at their disposal, can they really be trusted to work towards a greater good? THE MOVEMENT #1 comes to you from writer Gail Simone (BATGIRL; SECRET SIX) and artist Freddie Williams II (CAPTAIN ATOM; GREEN ARROW).

Meanwhile, in ACTION COMICS #20, the Man of Steel must save the people in Suicide Slum, who have become infected with the alien virus that attacked Superman last month. Along with the help of Dr. Veritas, Kal-El  will need to get the answers to fight this new threat quickly – before it continues to mutate and grow into a completely unstoppable force and even when he does Lex Luthor is still on the loose! Plus, in the backup story, journey to the world of Krypton! From the creative team of Andy Diggle, Tony S. Daniel, and Matt Banning on the main story and Scott Lobdell and Frank Hannah writing with Philip Tan and Jonathan Glapion on art for the back-up, ACTION COMICS #20 lands in stores this Wednesday.
