Kick-Ass Cover Alert: Action Comics #869

Looking at Previews for September, I stumbled upon a totally killer cover. Gary Frank's rendering of Clark and his pa is so sweet and unpretentious that it puts a lump in my throat. The only thing cooler would be if it would have come out on Father's Day.

Here are the specs:

Written by Geoff Johns
Art by Gary Frank & Jon Sibal
Cover by Gary Frank
"Brainiac" part 4 of 5! Krypton's greatest adversary has set his sights on Superman and his homeworld as his endless quest for absolute knowledge continues. But the horrors within Brainiac's ship are nothing compared to the alien behind it. Superman's world is about to change as the build-up to the Superman event of 2008 races towards its conclusion!
On sale September 10 o 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US"

This cover is just another example of why I love Gary Frank's art. Amazing.

No new comic book list tonight as Diamond didn't update. I will see you back here tomorrow. Tonight we are sitting here giddy because we got our stimulus check and ran it to the bank. Yay!
