Next month, Superman fans will witness an explosive and defining revelation in “Star Light, Star Bright…,” the back-up story in ACTION COMICS #14.


Regular ACTION COMICS back-up writer Sholly Fisch welcomes aboard the stellar art team of Chris Sprouse and Karl Story for a tale that finds the Man of Steel making a mysterious trip to an observatory. But why is he there? Why would someone so well versed in other planets need the help of an observatory? We asked the back-up story’s editor Wil Moss to give us a clue as to what Superman is up to. Take it away, Wil! 


“The back-up in ACTION COMICS #14 is a really terrific little story, but we can’t tell you much about it yet,” Moss teased. “All we can say is that it’s IMPORTANT! Historic, even! Superman has been making these regular trips to an observatory. But why? What is he searching for? Find out this November … and wait’ll you see who’s helping him!”


Place your bets in the comments section below about what you think Superman is looking for, and don’t forget to pick up ACTION COMICS #14 when it flies into stores on November 7th.
