DC Comics provide a new look at Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev's "Event Leviathan"
DC’s Event Leviathan is shaping up to be one of the biggest crossovers in years. Spearheaded by Brian Michael Bendis, the buildup in Action Comics alone has been gripping, mysterious, and all-around excellent, with a threat that’s managed to take out the likes of Spyral and Argus. That’s no mean feat. Plus, any story that utilizes Batman, Manhunter, the Question, and Plastic Man has my attention.
And that’s to say nothing of the cryptic teases that have slowly been coming out over the past several months, along with the announcement that Bendis would reunite with Alex Maleev to unfold the mystery behind Leviathan.
Also also: anything that spins off into a new Jimmy Olsen book is a-ok with me.
While we’re still a few weeks away from the event kicking off proper, DC have released a first look at both Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 and the promo materials for the Event Leviathan series itself.
As a bonus, DC have also included Bendis and Maleev’s entire story from the recently released DC’s Year of the Villain #1. Check it out below.
Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on May 29, with Event Leviathan #1 following on June 12.
