EXCLUSIVE: 1st look at DC Comics' rebooted Superboy #1

When DC Comics announced it was rebooting its entire universe and starting 52 comics over again with issue #1, we all wondered ... would this experiment work? Well, now we've got your first look at Superboy #1, and it turns out the superpowered teen really IS an experiment—born of a combination of Kryptonian and human DNA.

In the first five pages of the issue, written by Scott Lobdell and drawn by RB Silva and Rob Lean, we get to see how a failed experiment spawned a decidedly different Superboy.

The issue doesn't go on sale until 9/14, but you can see the cover and read the first five pages right now. Click on the images below to view them at full size.
