The cataclysmic events of
Infinite Crisis have left the world without its three biggest icons - Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman - and the question is asked: Who will stand up in their absence...

Produced weekly for 52 weeks to fill in the year between Infinite Crisis and One Year Later, this groundbreaking 'real-time' series is finally being issued in a four part graphic novel collection. This series is written by some of the world's top writers, including Greg Rucka, Mark Waid, Geoff Johns and Grant Morrison.

In 52: Volume 2 tragedy lies in store for Booster Gold; romance surprises Black Adam; Steel struggles with his unwanted new powers; Renee Montoya and The Question continue their search for answers; Elongated Man continues to try to resurrect his wife; and Animal Man, Starfire and Adam Strange meet the savage bounty hunter Lobo... but has he changed his ways? Meanwhile, who's kidnapping the world's mad scientists?

So what can you expect from this collection? Well, Booster Gold's dubious heroism comes under fire, again; Lex Luthor's scheme for giving ordinary citizens superpowers explodes; and The Question heads into hostile territory to confront Black Adam.

As with Volume 1, there's plenty of additional material including rough sketches and additional text by the writers.

Wonderfully scripted and beautifully illustrated, this is one collection that all superhero fans can't afford to miss.
