LAST STAND OF NEW KRYPTON continues in SUPERMAN #698

Writer James Robinson and artists Javier Pina and Bernard Chang present the third part of the battle between New Krypton and Brainiac, with Superman trapped on Brainiac’s ship while New Krypton burns. Can Mon-El call upon all the skills he’s gained in the past years to save the Man of Steel? What secret will our heroes learn about Brainiac to turn the tide of battle? No spoilers here, folks. But I do come bearing preview pages.

Mon-El makes his Metropolis return in SUPERMAN #694

Kicking off a new 5-issue storyline, writer James Robinson sets the stage for the monumental SUPERMAN #700, with some help from artist Javier Pina. Mon-El makes his triumphant return to Metropolis with a new look and a determined manner just in time to combat the unstoppable fury of Bizarro. But with his powers phasing in and out, will the new Mon-El be able to save his city even with the help of the Guardian and Metropolis's Science Police?

SUPERMAN #694 hits 11/25.

What’s going on the Superman books next week? Find out from editor Matt Idelson now

Hola, folks!

I wish I could be like my ultra-trendy pal Michael Siglain, and give you a nice Halloween theme here, but let’s face it: on New Krypton, everyone wears a costume 24/7, and they don’t have candy there. (Notice none of the Kryptonians are overweight—well, except for Kal’s lawyer, but that’s genetic.) You’d think having been trapped in a bottle for decades they’d all be out of shape—or at least have invented Malomars. Whatever.

Experience the origins of Mon-El’s homeworld in SUPERMAN ANNUAL #14

Since Superman freed him from the Phantom Zone, Mon-El has spent his time learning about Earth and its many, diverse cultures. But how much does he know about his own homeworld, Daxam? The Legionnaire known as Tellus allows Mon-El to explore the ancient history of his home planet -- from it's beginnings as a Kryptonian colony to it's connection to Earth's Mayans. Join writer James Robinson and artist Javier Pina as they take Mon-El on a tour of the planet he always believed to be anything but exciting.

A day in the life of SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson

Ooh, look! Sun! I’d forgotten what that looks like. Neat. Today is a bit of a mad scramble (what else is new?). We’re wrapping up the lettering on ACTION COMICS #879, which means a lot of emailing back and forth with letterer Rob Leigh. He’s come up with what I think will be a stronger method for the English subtitles to all the crazy Kryptonian speak going on in the book. And if this doesn’t work, we’ll just start throwing sound chips in the book!

Renato Guedes tackles covers for ACTION, SUPERMAN and SUPERGIRL annuals

You may have noticed a trend here at The Source. We like to show cool art once it appears in our inbox. SUPERMAN Group Editor Matt Idelson and his assistant Wil Moss, coincidentally, like to forward us cool art. It works out nicely.

So, to close out this Monday, we've got three covers from SUPERMAN artist Renato Guedes. The covers, for ACTION COMICS ANNUAL, SUPERMAN ANNUAL and SUPERGIRL form a loose triptych image. What's better than a Guedes image? Well, three.
