Many superhero fans rolled their eyes when DC Comics announced it was going to give Superman a youth culture makeover – edgier attitude; blue jeans instead of tights – in order to make the icon more relevant. But with writer Grant Morrison at the helm, Action Comics has emerged as one of the best books in the publisher’s ‘New 52’ line.
The third issue – which hits comic book stores on November 2 – shows what happens when the citizens of Metropolis get fed up with their self-appointed protector. (#OccupyMetropolis!) And as this exclusive preview shows, the story also offers a sense of what life was like on Post-Flashpoint Krypton. The art team: Rags Morales, Brent Anderson, Rick Bryant.
