The Wrath of Zod
Like Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Kevin J. Anderson was first published in his teens, and his prolific success is enviable. Now Anderson will sign and discuss what Superman fans have been clamoring for: The Last Days of Krypton, a book that subtly retraces the courtship of Jor-El and Lara, the usurping General Zod, and the final aching destruction of baby Kal-El's planet. Anderson's talent lies in his fantastically futuristic vision paired with his knack for intricately layered dialogue, so it's no wonder he was tapped to pen various Star Wars spinoffs, three X-Files novels, and prequels to Frank Herbert's Dune.
