In Superman #23.2, writer Tony Bedard sheds some light on the backstory of one of the Man of Steel’s oldest foes: Brainiac. This is an unsettling origin update that combines sci-fi action and a horror movie atmosphere to give us a chilling study of this computerized menace. Along with some jaw-dropping interior art by Pascal Alixe, the 3D cover for the issue was illustrated by Gene Ha, one of the industry's top talents. Here we get an in-your-face glimpse of Brainiac in his updated outfit gloating over a prone Superman in the background. Check out the 3D motion in the video below:
