CLARK KENT: JOURNALIST OF STEEL #1
Plotted by Clark_Kent
Written by Dan Jurgens
Art by Dan Jurgens
• The Daily Planet news building, with its top adorned by a golden globe, was once the crown jewel of Metropolis' skyline. In recent years, however, the proud newspaper has seen decline during the rise of social media. The paper is in financial crisis, and the globe hasn't spun in years. This looks like a job...for Clark Kent, new freelance reporter for the (formerly) great metropolitan newspaper!
• Corrupt politicians, evil businessmen, and social injustices beware, because the pen is mightier than the sword...and Clark just may be stronger than both. That is, if Cat Grant (Clark's new partner) and Faye Aura (aspiring writer & photographer) don't drive him crazy first!
• Also, with his star reporter on assignment in Washington D.C., EIC Perry White gives Ron Troupe the chance of a lifetime..."Who is this guy running and jumping around the city in a cape?" And why is Lex Luthor, the richest man in America, smiling about it?

However, there is already a relentless vigilante in these parts and he wears the face of a clown...enter Jack in the Box!

Plot by GLOBAL HONORED

Interlocking Variant Cover by ALEX ROSS (featuring Bruce Wayne)
"DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN"
Gotham City. New Dawn. Same battlefield.
A deranged killer, high on a dangerous new psychotic drug that has hit the streets, goes on a shooting spree in old town. The Batman is able to subdue him before a shootout with GCPD leads to any more casualties. Court psychiatrists declare him unfit for trial. The public is outraged. On the way to Arkham Asylum his transport is ambushed. The driver killed. The killer escapes. Is justice really being served? Somewhere in the darkness...the laughing grows louder.
It's an election year in the city. Power and influence rides on the outcome. Organized crime is pushing their candidates hard. Intimidation, like the sweltering heat, is at an all time high. Unfortunately the Falcones and The Penguin's Gang have conflicting interests. Which crook do you vote for this year? Either way, it is keeping Commissioner Gordon and his force working overtime.
An upstart foreign interest is making waves, with rumors of a hostile takeover attempt of Wayne Enterprises. Secret documents are mysteriously stolen from Lucious Fox's database. Could it be linked? Who is coming after the company and why?
And at stately Wayne Manor, Bruce Wayne receives a special invitation to a private masked ball being held for Gotham's criminal element by the Riddler. What's the special occasion? Riddler promises to reveal the true identity of Batman!?! Riddle me this Mister Wayne: What dark secret keeps you up at night? Bring your best disguise!
And so it begins. Gotham's reckoning.

Meet Clark Archer, an intelligent young man who has always been a little shy. From the CIA to the DEA to the FBI, Clark’s family is littered with law enforcement officials. He felt like it was only natural for him to go into law enforcement as well. But is this the life Clark wants for himself?
The lives of both of these young men will be changed when they choose to help a young woman being chased across campus by a group of men that just seem out of place.
The future of Gotham begins here. Join us, class is now in session!

Gaining a Foothold Part 1
Stagnant, oblivious, and most of all, corrupt. That’s how Mark Evans describes the United States government to a crowd of over 100 attendees at a F.O.G. (Free Our Government) rally Washington DC. Things get out of control when someone in the crowd disagrees with Mark and a huge fight ensues. Police arrive to break up the gathering, but not before Mark has 3 more recruits. One of them is James Mason, former Chicago cop and current vigilante known as Gangbuster.
Several hundred miles away in Atlanta, GA, Josiah Power is attending another F.O.G rally. More peaceful, but no less intense, the speaker calls for more government oversight and control to stem corruption. While leaving the rally, a man slips and bumps into Josiah. Thinking nothing of it, Josiah returns to his hotel room where he notices a flash drive in his pocket and blood on his shirt.
Who was the man that bumped into Josiah Power, what is on the flash drive, and is any of it connected to F.O.G.?

"Down & Out in the Bialyan Hills" (Part 1)
Tampa, Florida (Ybor City) - The Dead Spot Saloon. Never was a bar more appropriately and yet sadly named. The proprietor and sole employee is Floyd Lawson. The costumed community used to know him as the World's Finest Assassin aka Deadshot. But those days are behind him. He's retired. Gave it all up and cashed out to live his lifelong dream - owning his own thriving bar right here in the sun soaked Night Club district. Someone forgot to tell his dream about the realities of business start ups in today's economy.
In walks a lady. That is how these things usually begin. But she's different, remotely familiar even. Fairly attractive. And the only customer this establishment has seen in days, not counting that guy from the bank threatening to foreclose the place. Claims to be a president, dictator, or maybe prime minister...what's the difference? Anyways, she's involved in a power struggle with a bitter rival, some crazed tyrant. She needs to take him out to restore order to her beloved country, Bilaya (may have to mapquest this one.) She needs Deadshot. He's retired. She's offering one million dollars of her nation's funds when the job is complete. That would keep the bank off his back and put him knee deep in piña coladas for the foreseeable future. He's now unretired, on one stipulation - he will need some backup. And he knows just the fella.
United Republic of Tanzania - Not many private planes land in this remote region of Tanzania. Big game hunters. A few journalists. Those who deal with highly illegal or socially frowned upon pursuits. That sounds about right. But the locals know exactly who Floyd and "Queen" Bee are looking for when they start asking around. They seek the Ghost Beast, the one who lives with Lions. For a price they will guide them out into the wild, where the Ghost will find them.
The night is much darker in the African wilderness than it appears on TV. And louder. But they never hear the Ghost until his blade is pressing against their throats.
"Hello Thomas. Long time no see. If you let the lady live, she's got a job for us."
To be continued...
