It's New Krypton's worst nightmare as Brainiac attacks the planet, determined to recapture the city of Kandor. But General Zod has been waiting for this moment since Brainiac first attacked Old Krypton – he has a plan to save his people, but at the cost of Earth, which doesn't really bode well with a certain Man of Steel. So it's up to Superman, Supergirl, Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes to stop the two madmen before they destroy everything in their path.

How often do you get to start on the ground floor of a great artistic career? Not very, I'd guess. This might be your chance. Yildiray's done a number of assignments, but it wouldn't be a stretch to say his work on LEGION is his breakout opportunity.

Legendary LEGION writer Paul Levitz goes back to the future to reunite with the characters he helped define in an all-new space adventure, teaming him with rising star artist Yildiray Cinar.

If that's not enough for you, here's a peek at the inked first page of the first issue of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, hitting in May.
It’s simple, really. When readers think of the Legion of Super-Heroes, they think of writer Paul Levitz. Specifically, they think of Levitz’s groundbreaking work on the series, which included the epic “Great Darkness Saga” -- a story that helped modernize comic book storytelling and story structure. Well, he’s back.
