DC have just released a preview of the first issue of their upcoming Superman: American Alien miniseries.
The series, written by Hollywood screenwriter Max Landis, who masterminded the blockbuster superpower movie Chronicle and the critically acclaimed American Ultra, is made up of seven short stories from Clark’s life, all of which represent important junctures in his development as a person. The stories are brought to life by the brilliance of Francis Manapul, Jock, Jae Lee, Tommy Lee Edwards, Nick Dragotta, Joëlle Jones, and Jonathan Case, with covers by Ryan Sook.
Speaking about the series, Landis said “Issue one is heartwarming, two is brutal, three is sexy, four will make you think, five’s thrilling, six might make you cry and seven…seven has the most violent fight you’ve ever seen featuring Clark Kent,” says Landis. “This has been my dream since I was ten years old. Come on this journey with me and Clark. C’mon.”
The first issue sees Nick Dragotta (East of West, Fantastic Four) illustrate 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!
