DC launches the newest addition to its All Star line of comics — where the industry’s top creative talents refine the iconic focus of the world’s greatest super-heroes. Writer Grant Morrison
(JLA, SEVEN SOLDIERS) and artist Frank Quitely (THE AUTHORITY, New X-Men
) — the acclaimed team behind JLA: EARTH 2 — are at it once again, this time to strip down the Man of Steel to his timeless, essential elements.
The series kicks off with a 12-issue story arc touching on all the classic aspects of the Superman
mythology, starting with a daring rescue of a doomed group of helionauts on the surface of the sun. The massive amounts of solar radiation affect Superman
in a way no one could possibly anticipate — except Lex Luthor!
