Lex Luthor's search for the Black Lantern energy takes a shocking twist in the penultimate issue of Paul Cornell and Pete Woods' BLACK RING storyline. Brainiac is the last adversary standing between Lex Luthor and a source of near-limitless power - will Lex finally complete his quest, or will the alien claim that power for himself? ACTION COMICS #899 features guest art by Jesus Merino and hits stores on March 30th. The issue leads into the return of Superman in next month’s oversized, landmark issue #900 – which finishes the Black Ring story and spins right into the action-packed Reign of Doomsday. This series won’t be slowing down for even a second.
