Trailer – “Superman: Year One”

DC Comics has released a video trailer promoting the upcoming release of the first issue of Frank Miller and John Romita Jr’s “Superman: Year One” miniseries.

The DC Black Label will release SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE featuring creative work by Frank Miller (Batman: Year One/Batman: Dark Knight Returns) and John Romita Jr. (Daredevil: The Man Without Fear/The Amazing Spider-Man) this June, August, and October, along with a collection, which will be available this November. According to Black Label:

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.

The first issue will be available in local comic stores on June 19th. Check out the covers and the cover to the collected edition below!

I think I’ve heard that Clark Kent joins the military in this origin story. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, then I REALLY like this idea as part of his origin story. I’ve always defended Superman and said he’s truly a relatable character. But his detractors (mainly Batman fans and Marvel fans) always said he’s not relatable. So if this is true about Clark Kent joining the military in this origin story, then I’m very happy. I say this because as a former military veteran myself, I think “military life and experience” is yet another aspect that… Read more »

Frank Miller was responsible for two of my favourite comics ever – TDKR and Batman Year One. But since then he’s been responsible for some of the worst garbage I’ve ever read. He lost it long ago and I think it’s a serious mistake to entrust him with Superman, a character he’s shown such disrespect for in the past. Even if he takes this project seriously, I very much doubt that this will be a Superman I can get behind. I’ll look out for the reviews, but I am very, very sceptical.

Hmmm, having Clark in the military has me thinking this is set in Miller’s Dark Knight continuity…not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad one, though…
