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.
What is a young man to do when he's handed a death sentence? Experience life as best you can, no?

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.
