DCU IN 2011: THE LORD OF DARKNESS IN STARK BLACK AND WHITE

"The Rise of Eclipso" begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA issue 54 and, so far, we've kept the lid tight on the details of James Robinson's epic storyline.

But we can confirm, this one's got it all:

As announced earlier this week, the Reign of Doomsday story will continue through SUPERMAN/BATMAN ANNUAL #5, as Supergirl must team up with Batman to try to stop Doomsday and Cyborg Superman from tearing them apart.

Doomsday is coming back.

A few of you drew this conclusion from last week's tease, and we'll confirm here that the Kryptonian killing machine will return to Earth early next year - and you don't need me to tell you that's never a good sign for the heroes of the DCU.

Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with:
