Hello and welcome to the 52 Book Club, where each week we read an issue of the acclaimed maxi-series as we celebrate it’s 15th Anniversary!
This week we cross a little milestone with issue 40! We’re only twelve issues away from the end! Well…technically 16, but…we’ll get there.
Anyway, issue 40, written by the Gang of Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns and Mark Waid, with art breakdowns by Keith Giffen and finishes by Chris Batista. There’s also a Secret Origins back u-uuuuh, actually, no, there isn’t one this week. Huh.
Steel leads his crew on an assault on LexCorp to bring down the super-powered Lex Luthor and save his niece Natasha Irons. But can the man of Steel stand toe-to-toe against a superman Luthor? Find out in Week 40!
