Much of today has been devoted to wrapping up WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #8, which is a pretty crazy issue. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods are introducing the Thanagarians to the series, and where the Thanagarians go, can bloody skirmishes be far to follow? One thing that’s complicated matters on this issue is Pete’s shoulder injury (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to give the opposing team info on our players’ injuries!).
It started in a tiny town. Smallville, Kansas, to be exact. There, a boy named Clark Kent would begin to learn the lessons that would help him become not just a man, but the world’s greatest defender and a universal symbol of hope and freedom: Superman.
Every now and again, we like to throw out a few covers from the coming months that might tease at just what is coming down the pike in the DCU. Today's no different.

Specifically, the covers to ACTION COMICS, SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON, SUPERGIRL and SUPERMAN. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
