Monday's winding down, and while there are still four more work days looming, let's take a glance at some of the notable bits in the press from the last few days:

Experience the origins of Mon-El’s homeworld in SUPERMAN ANNUAL #14

Since Superman freed him from the Phantom Zone, Mon-El has spent his time learning about Earth and its many, diverse cultures. But how much does he know about his own homeworld, Daxam? The Legionnaire known as Tellus allows Mon-El to explore the ancient history of his home planet -- from it's beginnings as a Kryptonian colony to it's connection to Earth's Mayans. Join writer James Robinson and artist Javier Pina as they take Mon-El on a tour of the planet he always believed to be anything but exciting.

Someone's been shot, and Superman is tasked with finding the culprit. But when the shooter flees to Earth, can Superman play hero without pitting the planets against one another?

What better way to kick off your weekend then by looking at some lovely Renato Guedes pages?

As media mogul Morgan Edge fans the flames of Earth’s distrust of all things Kryptonian, Mon-El wrestles with his looming demise and what to do with his remaining time on the planet. At the same time, forces from the future plot to prevent Mon-El from meeting Sodam Yat, the GL from Daxam known as Ion.

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.

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.
