Overview

Geoff Johns's two most acclaimed stories of his now classic ACTION COMICS run, previously collected separately as SUPERMAN: LAST SON and SUPERMAN: BRAINIAC, are now collected together for the first time. Along with co-writer Richard Donner (director of the original Superman feature films), Johns will take us on a epic journey that will leave Superman re-examining everything about himself.

A rocket lands in Metropolis containing a boy Superman thinks is from Krypton. Along with figuring out what that means to him, Superman must protect young Christopher Kent, who has become the most valuable child on the planet thanks to his immense power. Will Superman be able to protect him against both Lex Luthor and his new Superman Revenge Squad, as well as the Phantom Zone criminals General Zod, Ursa and Non?

This all sets the stage for Superman's showdown with one of his greatest foes: Brainiac!

With art by Adam Kubert and Gary Frank, this new collection contains ACTION COMICS #844-846, #851, 866-870, and ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #11.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...(an)entertaining...read that's hard to put down. Grade: A"—Variety

"...pure spectacle, gripping intrigue, and a fresh and invigorating take on iconic elements of an established mythos."—IGN

Praise for Richard Donner:

"Donner, who directed Christopher Reeve in the classic first Superman movie, shows the same deft touch as a writer when it comes to giving the hero all-too-human longings."—Washington Post

Praise for Geoff Johns:

"Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be a fresh take on Batman, along come Johns & Frank to prove you extraordinarily wrong. Original, surprising and emotional, Batman: Earth One is a must-read."—Damon Lidelof, co-creator and executive producer of Lost
