Clark Kent Kidnapped: Preview Superman Leviathan Rising #1

by Olly MacNamee

One of the summer’s big mysteries  – who is Leviathan? – moves up a gear this week as Superman: Leviathan Rising #1 is released from DC Comics. Written by Matt Fraction, Greg Rucka, Brian Michael Bendis and Marc Andreyko with art by Yanick Paquette, Mike Perkins, Steve Leiber, Eduardo Pansica and Julio Ferriera, it also kick starts the Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane maxi-series too, so a must for all Superman fans and anyone looking to pick up either of these two new titles.

Here’s your generous 11 page preview of the comic and the amazing artwork of Paquette, who I get the pleasure of interviewing this coming weekend at Comics Salopia in Shrewsbury.

An all-star roster of writers and artists highlight the new threat of Leviathan, but also tees up new ongoing series for Jimmy Olsen by writer Matt Fraction and artist Steve Lieber, and Lois Lane by writer Greg Rucka and artist Mike Perkins, coming in June! As Leviathan enacts a plan to take down Superman, it’s up to Lois, Jimmy and the heroes of the DC Universe to rescue the Man of Steel.
