Walking with Superman: Day 269
Montana is called "Big Sky Country," but today the sky looks awfully crowded, filled entirely with the slimy carapace of a planet-eating space creature! Superman arrives in Lewiston, MT, a town now bordered on either side by the creature's enormous mandibles, latched into the Earth's crust. The Man of Steel springs into action, but how can he reason with a mindless beast? How can his super-strength affect a creature the size of a gas giant? What use is heat vision against an animal that would casually drink the molten iron from the planet's outer core? Superman may finally be in over his head--and unless he can drive off this astronomic arthropod, the world will end with neither a bang nor a whimper, but with digestion!
