What’s New In The New 52: First Look at SUPERBOY #25

By Bob Harras Friday, September 27th, 2013

Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.

A couple weeks ago, I showed you a sneak peek at “Krypton Returns” by giving you a first look at ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2. Today, take an all-new look at this upcoming crossover event by checking out some of Ed Benes’ stunning art for SUPERBOY #25 in the gallery above!

On the first of these two spreads, it’s Supergirl vs. the clone army of KON the Abomination. Kara finds herself in Krypton’s savage past (last seen in SUPERBOY #0), and it seems as though everything she’s ever feared about her home planet's history has become realized. But can she make it out alive?

Meanwhile, the second spread depicts Superboy facing The Eradicator in his first New 52 appearance! The duo seems to share a common desire for Krypton to cease existing – so then why are they engaging in battle? And what is The Eradicator’s connection to Kara? That’ll remain a mystery for now, but you can certainly expect to see more of him in the coming months …

With a story by Scott Lobdell, SUPERBOY #25 flies into stores on November 13.

Until next week!
