Several stories have been announced to launch DC Black Label, but one that caught our attention was Superman Year One by Frank Miller.

The latest devotional from Nathan Marchand and Eric Anderson has released, and it is full of geekiness and godliness. The chapters in the form of daily devotions are numbered from 1-42, and they cover everything from Justice league, Cain and Abel, to the passing of Stan Lee. We here at Geek devotions love to see the things in Geek culture that will point you back to God and Eric and Nathan do an excellent job of doing just that.
