Usually finding yourself doomed twice in the same week would be a cause for serious concern rather than celebration. But then again, none of us are Superman. (No, not even that guy who keeps emailing us asking for an ongoing Beppo, the Super Monkey series and signing his emails Clark “Superman” Kent. Sorry to disappoint you, dude.)
If you were fearing that it’s all downhill for Superman comics after last week’s SUPERMAN #32, you may be living in the Bizarro world. That’s about the only explanation that makes sense when you look at some of the phenomenal books featuring the Man of Steel hitting the stands this week.
There’s no sugar coating it. By all accounts and on all levels, Superman is doomed. It’s surprising. It’s frightening. It’s tragic. But it’s also compelling. No one wants to see Superman brought down permanently. But as far as human drama goes, you can’t ask for a more powerful one. Here’s why.
Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at ACTION COMICS #31 and SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #8.

This year marks a very special occasion: the 75th Anniversary of one of DC Comics' flagship characters, a character recognizable the world over, a character that to this day remains one of the most important characters in comics. We are, of course, talking about the brilliant reporter Lois Lane. Who, can we say, looks great for 75. It's almost like she hasn't aged a day in all that time.
This week's issue of Action Comics #25 marks the start of a new era for the Man of Steel by welcoming the new creative team of writer Greg Pak and artist Aaron Kuder. We've long been fans of Pak—both in terms of his creative output but also just as a person. So, having him working on essentially the most recognizable comic book character in the world is super awesome and exciting. The addition of Kuder only sweetens the already sugary delicious deal.
