Superman Takes on the “House of Brainiac” this May

May is the month where Superman’s family of comic book titles take on the “House of Brainiac”, with the intergalactic villain placing a target firmly on Metropolis.

In a new art preview, DC gives us a look at the covers and interior art from “Action Comics #1065”, “Superman #14” and “Power Girl #9”.

“Metropolis is robbed of its super-powered protectors by Brainiac and his Czarnian army, and Superman, Lobo, and the Super-Family are the last line of defense as DC’s House of Brainiac rolls on this May!”

In “Action Comics #1065” (“House of Brainiac” Part 3, on sale May 14) – As Superman and Lobo fight Brainiac’s Czarnian army in outer space, it’s up to Supergirl and Conner Kent to tackle the threat from the inside. They’ll face heavy odds, but they’re joined by some unexpected and deadly allies! Written by Joshua Williamson with art by Rafa Sandoval and Miguel Mendonça, Action Comics #1065 hits comic book shops May 14, with main cover art by series artist Sandoval and variant covers by Jorge Jiménez, Paolo Rivera, Ivan Talavera, and Mark Spears. Plus, witness the full, terrifying scope of Brainiac’s legacy in “Brainiac & Son,” a backup feature written by Joshua Williamson with art by Mirko Colak.

Then in “Superman #14” (“House of Brainiac” Part 4, on sale May 21) – Williamson, Sandoval, and Mendonça turn an unlikely super-team-up into the ultimate comic book slobberknocker in the fourth part of this can’t-miss storyline! Lobo has betrayed the Man of Steel, and Supes has had it with the Main Man. Even if they stop punching each other long enough to save the day, it’s too late—Brainiac has everything he needs to give life to the Brainiac Queen! In addition to interior art, Sandoval also provides the main cover, with additional covers by Salvador Larroca, Dave Johnson, Carla Cohen, and Chuma Hill.

“Power Girl #9” (“House of Brainiac” tie-in, on sale May 28) – Leah Williams, Eduardo Pansica, and Júlio Ferreira continue Power Girl’s quest to protect her Metropolis neighborhood against the advancing Czarnian horde! Lobo’s daughter Crush offers herself up as a diplomat to reason with her fellow Czarnians, but these aliens are as corrupt as they are crude, deciding that they’ll just add Crush to their growing number of hostages. Can Power Girl save the day alone, or will she fall prey to Goblin and his intergalactic biker gang? Yanick Paquette provides the stunning main cover, with variant covers by Tony S. Daniel and David Talaski.
