Good morning, Source readers. We’re slowly getting acclimated to this west coast time business and getting down to, well, business here at San Diego Comic Con. First up on the agenda is the SUPERMAN: TWO WORLDS panel, which kicks off in a few minutes. I think I still see a few seats available, so, if you’re milling around, you still have time to head over to Room 6DE to listen to some of the talented creators working their magic on the Superman franchise.
So far, Nightwing and Flamebird's attempts at apprehending Zod's sleeper agents have worked out pretty well. But enter Az-Rel and Nadira Va-Dim, and we've got problems. The "Bonnie and Clyde of Krypton" have turned the tables on our new heroes, and the race to prevent an all-out war with New Krypton may be over before it's even begun. Written by Greg Rucka , with art by Fernando Dagnino and Raul Fernandez, this issue also includes the first installment of the CAPTAIN ATOM co-feature, from Rucka, co-writer James Robinson and artist CAFU. Check out a few pages from the lead story below.
Up-and-coming artist Rafael Albuquerque joins the ongoing writing team of Michael Green and Mike Johnson for a tale of the World's Finest duo -- Robin and Supergirl. When the inmates take over at Arkham, can anyone but the Boy Wonder and the Maid of Might put things right? Check out a few pages below to see.
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #62 hits 7/15.

What is a young man to do when he's handed a death sentence? Experience life as best you can, no? Mon-El deals with his fate by doing just that -- exploring the world and interacting with some of DC's international cast of heroes.
But back in Metropolis, a new media mogul takes the airwaves. His name? Morgan Edge. Writer James Robinson and artist Renato Guedes continue their stellar run on SUPERMAN with issue #689, and we have some pages for you to peruse.
SUPERMAN #689 hits 6/24.
Curious about the origin of Nightwing and Flamebird? Well, you came to the right place. We've got a nice chunk of pages from ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #12, from writer Greg Rucka and artist Pere Pérez, featuring a lovely cover by Renato Guedes. N and F are busy rooting out Zod's sleeper agents in the present, but how did they find out about them in the first place? What's their beef with Zod? How'd they get together? And what's their link to the original Nightwing and Flamebird? Well, you know the drill.
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.
