Any Superman fan who hasn't picked up ACTION COMICS #900 is really doing themselves a disservice. Besides all of the many, many anniversary features that pack the 96-page issue, you're skipping out on a pretty earth-shaking twist in the ongoing Reign of Doomsday storyline. Those of you who've read it will know what I mean. To those of you who haven't, beware: spoilers after the jump....
ACTION COMICS #900 is here this week, and along with all of the special bonus features (Donner, Lindelof, Johns, Frank, Sook, Stelfreeze, Dini -check out the full list here!) celebrating 900 issues of Action,you'll get the 51-page finale to the epic Lex Luthor storyline that's been building since ACTION COMICS #890.
To celebrate the release of SUPERMAN: THE BLACK RING (now available in comic shops and bookstores everywhere), we asked associate editor Wil Moss about his experience working with Paul Cornell and Pete Woods as Lex Luthor took center stage in the pages of Action Comics:
If you've read the new Action Comics issue, you'll understand why it's important that Superman makes his climactic return to take on Lex Luthor in the lead story for next month's milestone ACTION #900.
Lex Luthor's search for the Black Lantern energy takes a shocking twist in the penultimate issue of Paul Cornell and Pete Woods' BLACK RING storyline. Brainiac is the last adversary standing between Lex Luthor and a source of near-limitless power - will Lex finally complete his quest, or will the alien claim that power for himself?
There are few better ways to start a workday than by posting a killer Action Comics cover. This one comes from the incredibly talented Kenneth Rocafort, whose issue #901 cover we showed off here a while back, and will be joining Paul Cornell to handle art duties on the series starting in ACTION COMICS #900. Here are a few words about Kenneth Rocafort from Associate Editor Wil Moss:
They’re fought Superman separately. They’ve teamed up and fought him together. Now Lex Luthor and Brainiac set their sights on a new enemy – each other! Two of the Man of Steel’s greatest foes duke it out the cover of ACTION COMICS #899 by David Finch and Ryan Winn.
Did anyone really think that Larfleeze would just forgive and forget Lex Luthor trying to steal his Orange Lantern back in Blackest Night? Check out a preview of the rematch we've all been waiting a year for and catch its results in ACTION COMICS #898, on sale next week. [gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
