Supergirl has finally brought Reactron back to New Krypton so he can be held accountable for murdering her father, Zor-El. While the debate about what to do with him rages among the people of New Krypton, the planet's ruler – and Supergirl's mother – remains unsure. Should Alura have Reactron executed? And will Supergirl allow it to happen if her mother decides to go that route? We can't spoil that for you here. But we can give you a glimpse at the issue, from writer Sterling Gates and guest artist Matt Camp.
As some of you know, artist Michael Turner died from complications of cancer last summer. He left a lasting legacy with not only the Maid of Steel, but comics in general. We thought it would be a great honor to spotlight his career and this milestone issue, SUPERGIRL #50 by having a cover from the artist that helped usher the modern version of Supergirl into the DCU.
We hope you agree and join us in celebrating the character, and this great artist.
Sterling Gates is far from a newcomer to the DCU -- but he's certainly one that's on the rise. With his work -- alongside artist Jamal Igle -- redefining and stabilizing SUPERGIRL, Gates has made a name for himself for his tight plotting and knack for strong and precise characterization. All of which can be seen month-in and month-out in the pages of the Girl of Steel's ongoing series.
Continuing from ACTION COMICS #882, "The Hunt for Reactron" concludes with the final showdown between Flamebird, Supergirl and the man who killed their father. And for the Daughters of Zor-El, that means it's payback time. Will Reactron make it out alive? Or is Nightwing the only one who can save them all? Writers Sterling Gates and Greg Rucka team with Jamal Igle to bring the story to a close. Check out a few pages below before you swing by your shop and pick up the full issue, which hits today.
Much of today has been devoted to wrapping up WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON #8, which is a pretty crazy issue. James Robinson, Greg Rucka and Pete Woods are introducing the Thanagarians to the series, and where the Thanagarians go, can bloody skirmishes be far to follow? One thing that’s complicated matters on this issue is Pete’s shoulder injury (I know, I know, I’m not supposed to give the opposing team info on our players’ injuries!).
Jumping from the pages of ACTION COMICS #881, writers Sterling Gates and Greg Rucka continue "The Hunt for Reactron" in the pages of SUPERGIRL. Can Supergirl rely on her seemingly unhinged childhood buddy to help her track down her father's killer? Or will she get burned by the person she once trusted most? Who knows? But we can tease a few lovely Jamal Igle pages right here. And don't go anywhere, as later today we'll have some more Superman inside info, right from Superman Group Editor Matt Idelson's desk.
Every now and again, we like to throw out a few covers from the coming months that might tease at just what is coming down the pike in the DCU. Today's no different. I'm probably sheltering myself from the Miami sun as you read this, but why let me have all the fun? Check out a few upcoming images from December to get amped up about. Specifically, the covers to ACTION COMICS, SUPERMAN: WORLD OF NEW KRYPTON, SUPERGIRL and SUPERMAN.
