Beginning in June DC Comics is bringing back the legendary Frank Miller for a new series focussing on the Man of Steel. Miller will be working with artist John Romita Jr. on Superman: Year One.
The new series will drop its first, super-sized, issue in June with the second issue arriving in August. The third and final issue will be released in October and the collected volume will then debut in November.
The publisher recently released a synopsis giving fans an idea what to expect when the series arrives:
“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.”
