When “The Great One” Brian Bendis left Marvel for DC Comics, he set out to return The Man of Steel to his former glory. And in this preview of Superman #12, by Bendis, Ivan Reis, and Joe Prado, we see the return of another classic: the sideways comic book page! It starts out like any other issue, with a nice big splash page showing the united members of the House of El in epic space battle…
But after that, things take a turn… literally!
Go ahead, pick up your computer monitor and hold it sideways…
It’s reminiscent of the 1990s crossover between X-Force and Spider-Man, where the entire issue was laid out like that. Sadly, this appears to be a one-page-only gimmick… this time. But is it time to bring this tradition back?
Superman #12 is in stores on Wednesday.

The House of El is united in this SUPERMAN/SUPERGIRL crossover! It’s the House of El against everyone as Superman, Jor-El, Supergirl and Superboy face intergalactic attacks from Rogol Zaar, General Zod and an armada of alien warriors and assassins. With the truth behind Krypton’s destruction set to be revealed, a galactic conspiracy threatens to silence Supergirl and Jor-El if Superman can’t live up to his name.
