DC Comics

SUPERMAN: THE POWER WITHIN (Digital) (13 Jan 2015)
DC Comics
This Trade Paperback Superman: The Power Within came out today (January 13th), although traditional comic book stores will still get it on Wednesday (January 14th).  The book collects ACTION COMICS WEEKLY #601 - 641 (plus a few other extra books), including the George Perez cover to ACTION COMICS WEEKLY #602 (1988).*  The physical book is on sale for $13 from, which I always think is a much better deal than its digital counterpart (which also costs $13). You pay just as much money, but get none of the benefits....

* UPDATE: Unlikely to reprint cover to ACTION COMICS WEEKLY #602 cover artwork (since the cover features Green Lantern, not Superman).

Details of the book:

When Superman saves an innocent man from being killed, he discovers two disturbing facts: 1) the man he saved is part of a cult that worships the Man of Steel, and 2) the man's would-be killer is part of another faction dedicated to wiping them out! Even worse, both groups are gaining super-powers due to a mysterious, space-born source that Superman must discover before it is too late! Plus: When a young man gains superhuman powers, he must quickly learn to use them to protect his sister from assassins ... and to deal with a certain Man of Steel ... all in the classic three-part Sinbad Contract! Collecting stories -- drawn by the great Curt Swan -- from ACTION COMICS WEEKLY #601-641. Plus, SUPERMAN #48, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #471, and ACTION COMICS #658, written by William Messner-Loebs.
