Face Your Inner Monster in ‘Superman/Wonder Woman’ #9

Superman’s got a problem. He killed Doomsday, which–right there, that’s not a very Superman thing to do.

This is what we’re fighting for.

Oh, but there’s more. There’s a recolored version of the direct sales cover for the combo pack (that’s the one that includes a digital copy of your comic).



Isn’t that neat? Let’s see it as a GIF!

Dig those crazy eye beams!

Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing Cracked columns. You can say a neighborly hello to him on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley. But you should probably enjoy his comic, Heist, first .

Crime pays.
