And now, a first look at SUPERMAN: SECRET ORIGIN #1

The moment we've all been waiting for is close at hand. The superstar team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank reunite to present the modern origin of the Man of Steel, and it all starts with a gigantic 48-[age first issue. Chronicling Clark Kent's journey from Smallville to Metropolis, you'll experience the beginnings of some of comics' most beloved characters, including Lex Luthor, the Legion of Super-Heroes, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and more.

Matt Idelson talks CODENAME: PATRIOT

A rare non-rainy day and I find myself trapped indoors with Wil Moss, putting the finishing touches on SUPERMAN #691, the fourth and final chapter of our latest Superman crossover, “Codename: Patriot”. While Wil goes over some dialogue tweaks involving the not-so-nice General Lane with James Robinson, I’m going over David Curiel’s colors. We’re asking a lot of David on this one, and so far, he’s been more than up to the challenge.

On sale tomorrow: ACTION COMICS #879

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.

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!

Take a look at the ACTION COMICS ANNUAL

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.

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.

Just another day for the SUPERMAN Group Editor

Hey folks! As usual, we have our regular “From the Editors” post  coming your way. Being the diligent worker we all know and love, Matt Idelson  managed to give us his entry early, as he made his escape to the distant land  of Barcelona. Enjoy...
