It's the End of the World!!! Again. In other words, Happy New Year 2012! This is the year that when December 21 hits, keeping any resolutions won't matter because it all goes apocalyptic! So what's our mood here at DC? To paraphrase our pal Alfred E. Neuman from MAD, "What, us worried?" Hardly. Doomsdays are what makes for great stories, and even a cool character here at DC! This just gives us fodder for story material.
Of all the villains being reintroduced within DC – THE NEW 52, none have been anticipated more than this one. He has not appeared inside a DC comic since early 2009 — DARKSEID!
While present-day Lex Luthor is busy fighting an array of the DCU's most vile foes over in ACTION COMICS, this year's ACTION COMICS ANNUAL takes a look back at two formative encounters Luthor had before he became the bald mad genius we know and love today. Paul Cornell gives us two great stories in this double-sized volume. In the first, Marco Rudy illustrates a story of young Lex and Darkseid, while in the second we've got Ed Benes tackling a tale starring Luthor and Batman villain Ra's al Ghul. ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #13 hits stores on December 2nd. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
