SRP: $9.99

Superman has arrived and he’s out of sight! Right? The world may love him, but the citizens of Metropolis are growing skeptical as the cities around them suffer without the help of the Man of Steel. The world doesn’t need saving as much as it needs changing, and Superman and his super friends in the Justice League seem unqualified to save the day the way they once did. Could this be the beginning of the end that Pariah prophesied? Or is it just a sign of the times?

Meet Clark Kent, a young reporter who just learned that the world will soon come to an end (Crisis on Infinite Earths) and there is nothing he can do to save it. Sounds like a job for his alter ego…Superman! After years of standing idle, the young man from Krypton defies the wishes of his fathers to come out to the world as the first superhero of the Space Age. As each decade passes and each new danger emerges, he wonders if this is the one that will kill him and everyone he loves. Superman realizes that even good intentions are not without their backlash as the world around him transforms into a place as determined to destroy itself as he is to save it. Uniting the critically acclaimed writer Mark Russell (One-Star Squadron, The Flintstones) and Eisner-winner Mike Allred (Silver Surfer, Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns & Moonage Daydreams) for the first time, this series promises fans an unforgettable journey through U.S. history and culture starring our beloved characters.

Bissette, Jae Lee, Nick Pitarra, Paul Pope, Bill Sienkiewicz, and legendary letterer Clem Robins teamed up with rising star artist Vanessa Cardinali and debut comic book writer Chanan Beizer for the all-new graphic novel, The Golem of Venice Beach.

Both a riveting narrative and a celebration of Southern California, The Golem of Venice Beach has already hit its funding mark on Kickstarter and shows no sign of stopping!

We’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes process art for the book from artists Paul Pope, Mike Allred, and Jae Lee!
