Special Effects for Paperback of "Last Days of Krypton"

HarperCollins will be issuing the paperback of THE LAST DAYS OF KRYPTON with a special "lenticular" cover -- fine prismatic etching that gives the whole book an amazing 3-D look, as if the Superman "S" is leaping toward you. This is the first time in publishing history that this effect has been used for a mass-market book.

The new painting is lovely as it is, but the scan can't give an idea of the lenticular effect. Be sure to take a look in the stores. The paperback will be released on August 26.

Also, I am just finishing the final polishes on the manuscript for Batman/Superman: FIRST ENCOUNTER, which is due out in fall 2009.
