SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE Coming in June From Miller and Romita Jr.

Back to the beginning — again — with the Man of Steel…

Superman probably has more origin stories than any other superhero — and there’s one more coming this summer: Superman: Year One, by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.

The previously announced project is part of DC’s adult-oriented Black Label imprint and the publisher released the details Friday: The mini will be a  three-parter and will launch in June, with follow-up issues due in August and October. A collection will follow faster than a speeding bullet in November — in time for the holiday season.

Check out the covers — adorned with a logo that DC says is subject to change:

Says the press release: “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.”

  1. His chest symbol seems like a throwback to the Max Fleischer “Superman” shorts.

  2. ”Superman probably has more origin stories than any other superhero”? I’m putting my money that Batman has more origin stories than any other superhero, like, Superman and Spider-Man, etc.
