A Summer of Superman is Coming
It’s going to be a very busy summer for Superman, Superboy and Brian Michael Bendis. Now that Superman has revealed his secret identity to the world, things are about to heat up for the Man of Steel and his offspring, Superboy; but Bendis and the Superfamily aren’t coming alone.
In the pages of Superman #24 (due out on June 10th), Bendis is joined by artist Kevin Maguire as a mysterious new villain has come to turn Superman’s life upside down. This new foe will put the Man of Steel at odds with the worlds most powerful sorcerer, Doctor Fate.

As Clark struggles to keep normality in his abnormal life he finds the most devastating story of his career: The Daily Planet under siege!
At the same time as Action Comics #1024 comes Event Leviathan: Checkmate #3 (also due out June 24th) but this time it’s Talia al Ghul, Lois Lane, Question and Martian Manhunter who uncover the plot by Leviathan to betray Checkmark.
