2014.09.24 – SUPERMAN DOOMED #2 and STORM #3 in stores today


Pretty thrilled to have two big books in comic book shops today:

SUPERMAN DOOMED #2 is the enormous conclusion to the six month long DOOMED storyline that’s run through the Superman books. Charles Soule and I co-wrote, with tremendous art from a slew of great artists, including Ken Lashley, Cory Smith, and many, many more.

Superman’s given in to the Doomsday virus, going full-monster in order to take on Brainiac, with the lives of everyone on Earth at stake. And yes, the last two pages might break your brain.

Check out Comicosity’s 8/10 review:

Soule and Pak seamlessly scribe a narrative that is both big on action and thought-provoking about the nature of solving the problem of world-dominating alien invaders. In one particular scene, Lois asks Superman how he can reward Brainiac by allowing him to live. The response is brilliant, and so right for Superman. So right.

STORM #3 follows Ororo Munroe back to the village in Kenya where she pretended to be a goddess as a child. Now she faces new challenges as an adult — with her former flame Forge on hand to complicate matters.

Have I mentioned that I love Greg Pak? Because I love Greg Pak. And I really love “Storm”. In just two issues, Pak and Victor Ibanez have dove feet first into exploring the long history of this wonderful character full of personal contradictions (an orphan and a pick-pocket and a weather witch and a goddess and a punk and a leader and a mother) and bringing all of these aspects together to create a portrait of one of the most interesting characters in Marvel’s history. Why aren’t you reading this book?
