Action Comics #875

 Action Comics #875 ( DC / Rucka / Barrows / Jose )

“To give the full details of this story would spoil the dramatic finale of the “New Krypton” crossover, and we don’t want to do that! Suffice to say, a “World Without Superman” is a very dangerous place, indeed, and the only thing standing between the good (and not so good) folks of Earth and an impending shadow of doom are the all-new Nightwing and Flamebird!

Eisner Award-winning writer Greg Rucka (FINAL CRISIS: REVELATIONS) teams with rising star Eddy Barrows (TEEN TITANS) to kick off a bold new era for ACTION COMICS!”

Action Comics has been the best Superman book since Geoff Johns took the reins of the classic DC book. He was able to take the Man of Steel across time and on a slew of  adventures that always seemed fresh, but still classically iconic.  But things don’t last forever, unless your name is Erik Larson, and Geoff has moved off of the monthly Action Comics gig.  But before he left Action Comics, and in the pages of his New Krypton storyline, he set up the makings of a super-powered manhunt.  And what better man to write good cop/bad cop manhunt than the comic world’s premier crime scribe, Greg Rucka?

Mr. Rucka wastes no time in finally letting us know some HUGE plot points in the New Krypton story line.  YES, Zod and Ursa are up to something!  YES, Flamebird and Nightwing are cool characters!  YES, Christopher Kent is going to be a player in the DCU!!  Rucka grabs readers, especially those following the Superman books, by their specific genitalia and doesn’t let go until the last page.
