Life is never dull for the Man of Steel, but the unexpected return of some of his strangest antagonists proves to be a mere warm-up for the astonishing events that follow their shenanigans. After taking care of the Prankster, the Silver Banshee and even a rogue Metal Man, Superman is faced with one of his greatest challenges yet -- a date with Wonder Woman.
As exciting (and potentially life-threatening) as an evening with the Amazon Princess promises to be, however, the Last Son of Krypton needs to keep his super-senses alert for threats from beyond the realms of both men and gods. Nemesis is coming from the heavens, black and silent, cold as death, and in the aftermath Superman's friends and foes alike will never be the same!
Famed for his runs on Marvel Comics' The Uncanny X-Men and The Fantastic Four, writer and artist John Byrne reimagined Superman for a new age before going on to chronicle the exploits of Wonder Woman, the Doom Patrol and the Demon for DC Comics. This volume also included the work of artists Jerry Ordway [THE POWER OF SHAZAM], George Perez [THE NEW TEEN TITANS], and Mike Mignola [Hellboy].
Born in England and raised in Canada, John Byrne discovered super-heroes through The Adventures of Superman on television. After studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design, he broke into comics first with Skywald and then at Charlton, where he created the character Rog-2000. Following his tenure at Charlton, Byrne moved to Marvel, where his acclaimed runs on The Uncanny X-Men and The Fantastic Four soon made him one of the most popular artists in the industry. In 1986 he came to DC to revamp Superman from the ground up, and since then he has gone on to draw and/or write every major character at both DC and Marvel.
