Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at ACTION COMICS #31 and SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #8.

This week launches a huge new storyline for Superman, and we don’t want you to miss a beat! SUPERMAN: DOOMED #1 starts the SUPERMAN: DOOMED story arc with an extra-sized one-shot. USA TODAY ran an exclusive preview along with an interview with Greg Pak and Charles Soule. Click here to check it out!

The story continues in ACTION COMICS #31 with Infected: Chapter 1: “True Believers”. Check out the gallery, above, for an exclusive first look as the Justice League – led by Lex Luthor – helps clean up after the battle with Doomsday. Superman barely survived the encounter and realizes that his wounds aren’t healing as usual. And the Men of S.T.E.E.L. start making their first appearance!

Then, in SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #8, Wonder Woman must deal with what Superman is becoming in Infected: Chapter 2: “Evolutions”. The world knows Superman and Wonder Woman are an item, but is their relationship strong enough to withstand the sudden changes—both physically and in temperament—in Superman? Take a look in the gallery above as Wonder Woman breaks out her lasso of truth! Will she need to use it? And what can Diana Prince learn from Lois Lane about Clark Kent that she doesn’t already know? Click here for a full-sized image of Wonder Woman confronting Superman.
