Superman: Year One by Frank Miller And John Romita Jr. To Be Released This June

When DC announced it’s Black Label it was meant to allow their all-star talent to expand upon the cannon of their iconic superheroes, with unique standalone stories that would not be part of the current DC Universe continuity, in simpler terms “story first”. We saw quite a few stories that were first announced like Batman: The Last Knight on Earth from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Phil Jimenez as and others. The only one so far to make it to comic book readers has been Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo’s Batman: Damned, which last September immediately found itself in unnecessary controversy because of Bruce Wayne being naked. Since then not much as come from this imprint until today.


Via DC we have learned that Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s long anticipated Superman: Year One will finally hit comic book shops this year. The first of the three large formatted books is scheduled to arrive in stores in June of this year. The following issue drops in August and the final one in October. The collection of the series will be available a month later in November. With the announcement DC has released all three covers for the books done by Romita Jr., Danny Miki and Alex Sinclair. As well as the cover for the final collection by Miller and Sinclair. Check them out below!

Here is the summery of the series provided by DC:
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 have to be honest when I say that since the arrival of Romita Jr. to DC I have not been the biggest fan of his art, especially in his run with All-Star Batman. I’ve enjoyed some of Miller’s writing in the past, so I will definitely be giving this book a shot.
