I always loved the origin of Superman, as told by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely in All Star Superman, taking up one page and few words. But needs must as the devil drives and the new Action Comics series demands a more detailed retelling of Superman’s departure from Krypton. And Action Comics #5 does just that. In this preview given by DC Comics to Wired magazine.

Not opnly is there an explanation for having a mini interstellar rocket around Jor El’s place, but we also find out exactly what’s happened to Krypto… and get an answer to some of the ghost dog mentions in previous issues too. Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert lay it out.
