Comic book fans will be surprised this October with the release of Action Comics #894.
The issue will have a guest appearance by the character Death from Neil Gaiman‘s beloved Vertigo comic book series Sandman.
According to DC Comics, Action Comics writer Paul Cornell thought of the idea himself to bring Death into the issue and then got approval by Gaiman, who he said has been supportive of bringing Death and Lex Luthor face to face. This big move is part of a huge story arc for Action Comics where Lex Luthor will not only go against people he is used to, but other characters he has never met before.
DC had very limited information about the storyline, but they did reassure that way they use Death “will be true to the spirit of what has gone before.”

It will be very interesting to see how this brand new story works out for both Lex Luthor and Death. Will the Brightest Day end with Lex Luthor being triumphant or will Luthor finally be defeated once and for all? What role will Death play in this scenario?
