Four of the most critically acclaimed writers in comics–Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid–are joined by breakdown artist Keith Giffen and a host of the industry’s finest pencillers and inkers to create this unprecedented event in comics history. DC’s groundbreaking publication of the weekly comic 52 tells the story of a “missing” year in the DC Universe–in real time. The cataclysmic events of INFINITE CRISIS have left the world without its three biggest icons¾Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman–and the question is asked: who will stand up in their absence? Now, in the first of two volumes, 52 is collected with bonus material after each chapter, including concept designs, page breakdowns, scripts, alternate story elements, and more! Collects 52 #1-26.
