COMICS: The Justice League Join The Battle To Stop H'el In SUPERMAN #16

As "H'el On Earth" races to its conclusion, some members of The Justice League step in to aid a conflicted Superman in the battle against his fellow Kryptonian. Check out the cover and some very nice pencils from Kenneth Rocafort after the jump..

Writer Scott Lobdell reveals when fans can expect the current arc to wrap up, and also when things will tie back into the events of issue #0..

"I can tell you that "H'el on Earth" has a definitive ending and that happens on page 20 of "Superman" #17. Having said that, the events that take place in "H'el on Earth" in 16 and 17 are going to have impact on the time travel story that takes place in all 4 of the "Superman" titles. So, the story of H'el and the past and Krypton, all this will be told, but it's not going to be told consecutively. Anybody looking for answers to their questions that were raised in the 0's will not be answered until that story gets played out."

For the interview in full click the link below. Superman #16 hits shelves January 30th.

i don't read comics but i was just wondering, is the superman in this series the same superman in the justice league book.
Castle0715 - 1/3/2013, 11:44 AM
@polarkyle, yes he is, But that was his costume in Action Comics which is set in the past before he donned the suit. And i mean its not bad for a start, the blur look from smallville would have worked too as a "pre" super suit

I love the series and cant wait to see how this unfolds

Gail Simone, a highly respected writer in the industry gets kicked off a book she was doing wonders on.

Scott Lobdell, complete hack who gets to write DC's flagship characters (depending on who you ask) main book.

obviously i know Gail Simone is satying on batgirl now, but only because fans went batshit crazy (no pun intended)

I thought the Justice League was busy with the Ocean-Master

hey, those are not just regular jeans. notice the knee patches? those are work pants he is wearing. show some respect to the big guy, please.

@NerdAlert. Good on you. I was about to explain that too to all the non readers.
AztecRainGod - 1/3/2013, 2:13 PM
Im not a Superman comic reader, but could this Hel guy take Superman Prime?
Fortress - 1/3/2013, 2:19 PM
@NerdAlert @MutantEquality thanks for explaining that! now i love it!!!

I don't mind the t shirt and jeans look myself. Why does he always have to be in costume? We have casual Fridays at work don't we? I know, I know, "Yeah but he's could get his pantses burnded off!" Whatever. Let the man save the world in comfort. Hell, let him wear flip flops while saves kids from a burning building. It's cool Superman. As long as he doesn't rock the jorts. I'm told the ladies don't like a man in denim shorts. I don't know much about that stuff myself.

Really diggin Rocaforts art. Havent seen any of his work since Cyberforce.
Grabthemcakes - 1/3/2013, 4:44 PM
I'm liking this series & really like Wonder Woman's outfit. The blue boots are good. I hope this is how a movie portrays her.
Bluestreak - 1/3/2013, 5:23 PM
I can't believe anybody is still reading this ... 3 creative changes in 15 issues, DC really had a plan there didn't they?
DCjohnny - 1/3/2013, 5:50 PM
I am really enjoying reading this hel on earth series ...
Allura - 1/3/2013, 6:11 PM
Rocafort's art in this is the best I've seen from him. And he'd just about manage to make Lobdell's "writing" bearable for me without any serious need to cut myself with every line of predictable cliche. Why DC is so keen on the past-it Lobdell remains a mystery to me. I mean he's at the helm writing like, what, 4 monthly DC titles? Just because he used to write X-men doesn't make him any good now. Are them Supes editors trapped in Days of Future Past? Seriously Sentinel this guy away already!
Gunjin - 1/3/2013, 7:23 PM
Artist got skills.

This mother[frick]er rocks! Rocafort is my new favourite comics artist!!!
