DC Releases a First Look at Superman #23

If I was Superman, I’d probably be asking myself, “Wonder if I should have rethought this whole revealing my secret identity thing?” Many folks in Big Blue’s world are still worried that he’s been tricked into destroying his own privacy. Having to go toe-to-toe with Mongul probably isn’t helping things, either.

In Superman #23 (on sale July 7) the Man of Steel will be dealing with a new villain, one steeped in magic and mysticism. And any Superman fan knows that he doesn’t have the greatest relationship with the old hocus-pocus. But Fate will step in to lend a hand – Dr. Fate, that is. This issue will also see some appearances from other denizens of the DCU’s more shadowy corners, including John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Swamp Thing, and Detective Chimp.

Here’s your first look at the John Timms cover and some interiors from Superman #23 by Kevin Maguire and Alex Sinclair. Superman #23 is written by Brian Michael Bendis, with additional art by John Timms and letters by Dave Sharpe.

On sale beginning Tuesday, July 7 at all open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers.
