Elseworlds Trade Paperbacks

“In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places – some that have existed, and others that can’t, couldn’t, or shouldn’t exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.”

  • Superman: True Brit

    by Kim Howard Johnson, John Cleese, John Byrne

    ELSEWORLDS. Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way, but what if the space capsule that brought him to Earth had landed in rural England? That’s the premise of this graphic novel coauthored by Monty Python’s John Cleese. Adopted by a stereotypically proper farm couple, the Clarks, young Colin is raised to suppress his powers to avoid drawing attention and causing embarrassment. After university, he heads to London to write for a trash tabloid run by a Murdock-like magnate and develop a crush on Page-Three-Girl-turned-reporter Louisa Layne. To honor his parents’ desire for anonymity, he adopts the guise of, as a TV commentator puts it, “a man in a cape and rather garish tights.” As one might expect from its Python pedigree, the story is seldom subtle in spoofing Britishisms, from National Health Service waiting lists to cricket. Onetime Superman illustrator John Byrne’s art keeps the character recognizable. Less outlandish than Cleese’s better-known work, this tongue-in-cheek take on superhero conventions should please comics and Python fans alike.
