Lucifer is hosting. With his new abode complete, the prince of darkness is throwing a nice little housewarming dinner party to break the place in. Invited are a collection of miserable individuals whose souls are the devil’s to command. But when an uninvited guest by the name of John Constantine crashes the party, all hell breaks loose.

Meanwhile: a horn is blown, a dead man is murdered, and a closet proves to be quite a bit more spacious than first expected.

SUPERMAN SMASHES THE KLAN #2

written by GENE LUEN YANG
art and cover by GURIHIRU

Teenager Tommy Lee is missing, and Superman is on the case! It can’t be a coincidence that just last night, Tommy bravely confronted the Klan of the Fiery Cross when they surrounded the Lee family’s Metropolis house and told them to go back to Chinatown.

The year is 1946, and Clark Kent is so new to being Superman that he hasn’t yet learned to fly—so his search for Tommy is conducted in huge, gravity-defying leaps that make Tommy’s sister, Roberta, suspect the Man of Tomorrow may not be an earthling at all! But if this strange, young hero can adjust to his adopted home, perhaps she can, too.

First, though, they must stop the Klan from blowing up Unity House, which has welcomed the Chinese-American Lee family into their community. But could the real target be across town, where Superman’s friends Jimmy, Lois, and Perry work at the Daily Planet?

Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) brings us part two of his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan!

Beyond the edge of creation lies the Black Stair. And beyond it, amidst the void, he waits. Mol Uhltep, The Last God. This is the tale of those who claimed to slay him, and the world they doomed with their lies.

In the third chapter of DC’s dark fantasy epic The Last God, Queen Cyanthe and her unlikely companions make their way across the land of Cain Anuun toward the Pinnacle—city stronghold of the Guild Eldritch, a powerful order of sorcerers led by Skol, another fabled member of the original fellowship of Godslayers. There they hope to find protection from the looming forces of Mol Uhltep and his inhuman servant, King Tyr.

In the past, we see young Tyr, Cyanthe, and Veikko Al Mun make their way toward a similar destination, while they uncover more secrets of the Last God’s plan and make an unlikely ally.
