DC Comics announced Superman: Year One from Frank Miller and John Romita Jr. will hit comic book shelves this June!
The series has been a work in progress. Miller had announced the project in July of 2017, but the announcement was short on details. John Romita Jr. would provide a little more information on the series when he discussed it at Boston Comic Con in August of 2017 where he described the book was similar to Miller’s Daredevil: Man Without Fear.
Now, we have an official description courtesy of DC Comics:
“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.”
