More exciting PROJECT SUPERPOWERS comics, featuring the greatest heroes of the ages, from ALEX ROSS and DYNAMITE!

Joining PROJECT SUPERPOWERS mastermind Alex Ross for the four-issue DEATH-DEFYING 'DEVIL series are writer Joe Casey and artist Edgar Salazar! Spinning out of the events from PROJECT SUPERPOWERS:

CHAPTER ONE and bridging the gap before the debut of PROJECT SUPERPOWERS: CHAPTER TWO, the

mysterious 'Devil is put on the case to track down the terrorist organization known as "The Claw."

Traveling with the equally mysterious Justine, the 'Devil is also shadowed by a new character that very well may hold the answers to the 'Devil's strange existence and new clues to the nature of the Urn which imprisoned all of our heroes! But is the Dragon friend or foe? Also featuring the modern-day return of the Silver Streak and the Ghost – icons from the Golden Age of comics!

All four issues of the acclaimed series are here, along with a complete cover gallery featuring the work of Ross, Salazar, John Cassaday, John Romita Sr., and George Tuska! Also included are character sketches and designs by Alex Ross, a look at Salazar’s artistic process, and the Free Comic Book Day Special, “The Death-Defying ‘Devil vs. the Claw,” by Alex Ross, Jim Krueger, Andy Smith, and Debora Carita!

“Death-Defying ‘Devil moves like lightning. The addition of yet another super-hero pulsating in Fajardo's haunting hues adds to the story without undermining the ‘Devil. Salazar's astounding frenzy keeps the pace at breakneck, and the ending surprises.” -- Comics Bulletin
