Discuss!

Just released tonight
"Hell to Pay" Chapter 12 will be available starting June 6th. Written by Jeff Parker and Pencils by Matthew Dow Smith.
Waller's last chance to save her soul from damnation is at hand, but can she grasp it tightly enough?
I expect many will die but hope it won't impact what Tucker and co. have in the works for the upcoming movies. But it's tough because they can't just kill off the not-so popular characters and spare the famous ones.

Chapter 3 is up as well.
Ma and Pa Kent came to Metropolis to meet Clark's lady, but when Ma sets off on her own, Superman has to come back and save her! "Power" part 3.
I guess the angle of this comic is to show the day in the life of Superman like that guest shot in The Brave and The Bold or even similar to B:TAS' "Appointment in Crime Alley".

EDIT: More info:
Art will be done by Cat Staggs, Joel Ojeda, Laura Braga and more. It is a weekly 12 issue series. Some chapters takes place before, during, and after the Doomsday battle. One story will explore what Jimmy was doing during the battle. Each chapter explains what power means: to Superman who uses it to save humanity or villains or wield it to further their own selfish agendas. Preview of Chapter 1 included.

Nice, now the comic will shift to during the battle and fill in what Jimmy was doing. I guess it's before the helicopter picks up Lois. Maybe Jimmy was there at Carlin Heights trying to get a scoop of the JL fighting Doomsday.

Nice. Hmm, it seems like the loglines hint that Jimmy might stumble on Intergang at or get kidnapped and taken to a hideout that happens to be in Carlin Heights. Then Doomsday randomly charges through their building and 'saves' Jimmy -- then he observes the battle between it and the Justice League. Gotta check that part in the movie. I think they leave the gap of Jimmy in the movie pretty wide -- so Simonson can really fill in that part -- was it when he takes Bibbo and Superman's photo then the next time he's seen is when he picks up Lois from Ace O'Clubs in the helicopter?
