In addition, “Lois Lane” and “Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen” are both beginning in July. And, continuing along, along with “Action” and “Superman,” is “Supergirl” from writer Marc Andreyko and artist Kevin Maguire.

    In this anthology one-shot, “Superman: Leviathan Rising” – we get stories from all four corners – Superman, Supergirl, Lois, and Jimmy – of the Super-universe. Today, we are thrilled to share an exclusive preview of the Supergirl portion, featuring guest illustrator Eduardo Pansica. The 80-page book is out on May 29th.
