Superman Faces “Knight Terrors”

DC has unveiled further details on the upcoming issues of “Superman” and “Action Comics” that will be a part of the publisher’s “Knight Terrors” event.

The Dawn of DC horror-focused event will take over the publishing line in July and August with two-issue miniseries that each feature a DC Super Hero or Super-Villain confronting their worst nightmares in a “Nightmare Realm.”

Clark Kent knows why he’s been pulled into the Nightmare Realm and goes in search of his family and friends, but that journey takes him to the haunted Nightly Planet, where he is confronted by the Super-Reaper! In the waking world, Superman was midflight when he was hit by the nightmare wave, and where he crash-lands will surprise you! Superman series writer Joshua Williamson and artist Tom Reilly (Batman: The Adventures Continue) bring you “Knight Terrors: Superman #1”. This issue will be available at local comic shops on July 18 with a main cover by Gleb Melnikov, open-to-order variants by Francesco Mattina and Christian Ward, a 1:25 variant by Filya Bratukhin, a 1:50 design variant by Dan Mora, and a Midnight variant by Dustin Nguyen.

Power Girl faces off against herself and the Super-Twins are being hunted by Cyborg Superman in “Knight Terrors: Action Comics #1,” written by Leah Williams and Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Action Comics) with art by Vasco Georgiev (DC’s Legion of Bloom) and Mico Suayan (Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity). Paige may have narrowly escaped the grasp of the devious Johnny Sorrow, but all of that was just a warm-up for the real villain inside. Meanwhile, the Super-Twins are lost in a terrifying dreamscape and being hunted by a nightmare version of their own adopted father, the murderous Cyborg Superman. Can Superboy, Kong Kenan, and the Steel family find the twins in time to save them, or will they join his bloody list of victims? “Knight Terrors: Action Comics #1” will be available on July 25 with a main cover by Rafa Sandoval, open-to-order variants by Mico Suayan and Gerald Parel, a 1:25 variant by Otto Schmidt, a 1:50 variant by Meghan Hetrick, and a Midnight variant by Dustin Nguyen.

Fans can get a preview of what is to come in “Knight Terrors” on Free Comic Book Day, May 6, with the “Dawn of DC Knight Terrors Free Comic Book Day Special Edition”. Joshua Williamson is teaming up with Howard Porter and legendary comics artist Chris Bachalo (Doctor Strange, Deadpool) to show what haunts Damian Wayne’s dreams.
