"THE PLANET IS DOOMED!" More stories from Jor-El's taped diary focusing on his crusade to convince the people of Krypton that their planet was doomed!
Author: Scott Snyder
Publisher: Dial Press
Scott Snyder’s protagonists inhabit a playfully deranged fictional world in which a Wall Street trader can find himself armed with a speargun, guarding a Dumpster outside a pawnshop in Florida; or an employee at Niagara Falls (his job: watching for jumpers) will take off in a car after a blimp in which his girlfriend has escaped. But in Snyder’s wondrous imagination there’s a thin membrane between the whimsical and the disturbing: the unlikely affair between a famous actress—in hiding after surgery—and a sporting goods salesman takes an ominous turn just as she begins to heal; an engaged couple’s relationship is fractured when one of them becomes obsessed with an inmate at the women’s prison next door. Dark, funny, powerful, this debut collection underscores the remarkable gifts of a fiercely original young writer. From the Hardcover edition.

La vida de las superheroínas ha sido dura. No se lo pusieron fácil. Desde sus inicios han tenido que luchar contra viento y marea para sobrevivir. Contra los prejuicios, contra el deseo de sexualizarlas, la censura, el machismo, las modas, las ventas, etc. Nacieron para satisfacer los deseos de los lectores masculinos pero, año tras año, han conseguido encontrar su propio camino, hacerse un hueco, agarrarse con uñas y dientes para sobrevivir. Este libro -una auténtica novedad en su género- hace un repaso de las principales superheroínas que han existido durante décadas en el mundo de los cómics, su evolución y los cambios que han sobrellevado: mujeres poderosas que han luchado contra el mal y el crimen con los mismos poderes que sus compañeros masculinos. Phantom Lady: Dama de la oscuridad. Brenda Starr: La reportera aventurera. Wonder Woman: La primera gran superheroína. Catwoman: ¿Supervillana o antiheroína? Batwoman: El glamour hecho superheroína. Desde que surgieron los primeros cómics, la mayoría de historias con seres humanos que poseían habilidades extraordinarias se centraron en los personajes masculinos. Y sí, de vez en cuando aparecía alguna mujer, pero tenía que conformarse con brindar apoyo a los superhéroes o formar parte de su equipo. Wonder Woman quizá sea el ejemplo paradigmático de la superheroína que rompió esquemas y consiguió, además, sobrevivir al paso de las modas y de los años. Aunque el tiempo fue cambiando su devenir, siempre se ha mantenido como el gran icono femenino y feminista del cómic. Pocas mujeres como ella han protagonizado su propia serie con éxito durante tanto tiempo, y las que lo hicieron se repartieron los papeles: algunas demostrando su fuerza física y muchas otras gracias a sus poderes mentales. Pero Wonder Woman no está sola en esta aventura: la acompañan mujeres como la Capitana Marvel, Catwoman, la Mujer Invisible, Batwoman, Spider-Woman, She-Hulk, Black Canary, Batgirl y un sinfín más.
Clark Kent's childhood sweetheart Lana Lang is back in Smallville, and the Man of Steel decides to pay her a visit. In the process, Clark learns the truth of his home planet of Krypton and the life his people ledÜbut what does it mean for his future on Earth?

A new era begins for Superman as a threat name Rogol Zaar comes to Earth to put an end to Superman and his cousin, Supergirl. How will the Last Son and Daughter of Krypton survive a threat that destroyed almost all of their kind? As his world comes down around him, Clark Kent must also wonder: what happened to his wife and son, Lois Lane and Superboy? Brian Michael Bendis, the scribe behind some of the greatest comics of all time, including Ultimate Spider-Man, New Avengers and Daredevil, dives headlong into the DC Universe in this precursor to his debuts on both Superman and Action Comics. Featuring stunning art by some of comics greatest artists including Ivan Reis, Evan "Doc" Shaner, Ryan Sook, Kevin Maguire, Adam Hughes, and Jason Fabok.

With Burrough's Mars series, Wylie's Hugo Danner is generally credited as the ancestor of both Clark Kent and Clark Savage, Jr. Danner, the product of a strength serum given to his mother during pregnancy, is able to lift 4,000 pounds, leap 40 feet in the air, and so forth. Unlike Superman and Doc Savage, however, Danner is never happy with his skills, hating the isolation and at times using his strength for monetary gain. Also, you can't imagine Doc Savage spending his summer after freshman year the way Danner did.
In 1986, John Byrne was recruited from Marvel Comics to reinvent Superman for a brand-new audience. Along with inker Dick Giordano, Byrne reimagined the look of Superman, Lois Lane, Krypton and Lex Luthor. The relationships between Superman and Lois, Superman and Batman, and Superman and Luthor were reexamined and tweaked for modern readers. Old villains such as Bizarro returned and new ones, such as Magpie, were introduced. It was the dawn of a new age for the Man of Steel that endures today. See how it all began in this collection of the first six stories. Includes a foreword by Ray Bradbury. This volume collects MAN OF STEEL #1-6.
