SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE - New Details and Cover Art For Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Comic Series
Last year it was announced that legendary comic writer and artist Frank Miller (Batman: Year One, The Dark Knight Returns) would be developing a new comic book series called Superman: Year One with artist John Romita Jr. We now have some new details to share with you along with a collection of cover art that was shared.
He is taking the Man of Steel back to his origins and it will be published by DC Comics’ Black Label imprint. Here’s the official synopsis that was released:
Superman: Year One is a coming-of-age story for the future Man of Steel, featuring a young alien-boy just trying to find his place in a new world. Faced with the need to hide his heritage and powers in order to survive, Clark will find his humanity through the grounding of the Kent family and the relationships that will define the man he will become. Told by two of the most revered voices in comics, Superman: Year One is more than a superhero story – it’s about the choices made by Clark Kent on his path to becoming a legend. It’s a testament to the importance of choosing to become a hero.”
I loved what Miller has done with Batman in the past and I can’t wait to see his take on the origin of Superman. There’s no doubt that he’ll bring something new and fresh to a story that has already been told several times over the years.
This is a three issue story arc and the the first issue is set to be released in June. That will be followed by issue No. 2 in August and issue No. 3 in October. The complete three-issue comic will be released as a single volume in November.
Below you will find three cover images created by John Romita Jr. for the Superman: Year One series and a fourth by Frank Miller for the collected story arc version that will reach stores in November.
