If you've read the new Action Comics issue, you'll understand why it's important that Superman makes his climactic return to take on Lex Luthor in the lead story for next month's milestone ACTION #900.
After all the excitement for REIGN OF DOOMSDAY we received after sharing Kenneth Rocafort’s awesome cover to ACTION COMICS #901, we know you’re anxious for more. Click below for this month’s Superman solicits: ACTION COMICS #901 Written by PAUL CORNELL
"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: * Shade. * Doomsday. * Blue Lantern Saint Walker joins the League to ensure that all will be well. * Alpha Lantern Boodikka and Supergirl on the trail of the Cyborg Superman. * The return of one of the DCU's classic villains, Eclipso.
...with a lot more Doomsday than they bargained for. 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.

A few words from the book's editor, Mike Carlin, who also edited the original Death of Superman story:
Next year's "Reign of Doomsday" storyline is still shrouded in mystery. We've done a couple teases here on The Source, and here's another: this great splash by Ed Benes from STEEL #1! Excited? Me too.
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: Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
