Let’s go hiking and when we run across an abandoned town, we’ll search the buildings! After narrowly avoiding death in the most gruesome of ways, we’ll take a little souvenir back home to remember the horrific occasion. Sound crazy? Well, yeah. But people do the craziest things when stressed out. Especially if the item they found is a possessed plague doctor mask that reeks of pure evil. Because, yeah, that’s probably going to be a problem.
Welcome to Death Head #3 in all of its twisted glory!

Is it possible for a man to truly get away with murder? In Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray‘s Abbadon, a sadistic serial killer is on the loose and two men with a complicated history will do everything in their power to ensure that the culprit is brought to justice.
When a series of gruesome murders befalls the western town of Abbadon, the famous U.S. Marshall Wes Garrett is called in to put his reputation to the test. Reluctantly working side by side with the sheriff of the town, Colt Dixon, Garrett wastes no time in looking for answers. But as the investigation deepens — and more bodies begin to pile up — it would seem a copycat killer is on the loose — one who brutally murders in the same way as the man who gave Garrett his renowned name.

Action Comics #900 is quite simply a celebration of everything great about Superman as a character. The issue, throughout most of the stories, is a showcase of Superman’s willingness to help and serve the human race primarily through self-sacrifice. Most of the recent anniversary episodes that we’ve seen, primarily through DC Comics, have been treated as anthologies with three or more short stories, one focusing on the end of a story arc, a couple of “untold tales,” and then one that starts the next story arc in Superman #700 and Wonder Woman #600; either that or a one and done story like Batman #700.
This book, on the other hand, focused more than half of its attention on the wrap-up of Lex Luthor’s Black Ring storyline by Paul Cornell and Pete Woods, and the return of Superman into Action Comics. Unfortunately, it also includes the recent Reign of Doomsday story arc, although in this issue it was a minor distraction, but still paled in comparison to the epic showdown between arch rivals Superman and Lex Luthor.
