Hollywood screenwriter and Eisner Award nominee Max Landis has penned a 7-issue miniseries for DC Comics entitled "Superman: American Alien." It'll take a look back at Clark Kent's early life, showing how the Kansas farm boy dealt with his various powers as they manifested themselves and which encounters shaped his sense of right and wrong.
The first issue will go on sale November 11th. While we wait for its release, we can enjoy this "unofficial" promo poster created by British comics artist Jock (also known as Mark Simpson) -- tweeted by Landis.
In this first issue, superstar artist Nick Dragotta (Fantastic Four) illustrates the story of Jonathan and Martha Kent as they struggle to deal with their 12-year-old son's latest quirk—he's been floating up into the air, sometimes hundreds of feet!
The second issue will be released December 16th.
After Smallville experiences its first violent crime in years, teenager Clark Kent is pressured by his best friend Pete Ross to take matters into his own hands. Renowned artist Tommy Lee Edwards (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD) illustrates this unflinching look at the boy behind the Man of Steel.
Artists Joelle Jones, Jae Lee, Frances Manapul, and Jonathan Case will also contribute to "Superman: American Alien."
