Scott Snyder and Jim Lee Join Forces for ‘Superman’
Superman has had an interesting 2012 with DCs The New 52, and 2013 looks likes it’s going to be just as exciting for the Man of Steel. DC Comics announced yesterday that the two mega talents will be teaming up for a brand new Superman title next year that promises to add even more interesting chapters to the Superman – and Clark Kent – mythos, including some new characters, and some familiar faces.
Lee, who recently wrapped an artistic run on Justice League with Geoff Johns (which introduced the controversial Superman/Wonder Woman relationship), said yesterday, ““As a huge fan of Scott’s writing, I’m looking forward to drawing Superman as much as I am reading Scott’s story as it unfolds. Scott’s crafted a truly epic yet personal story which will demonstrate without a doubt why Superman remains the most iconic hero of the modern age. 2013 is gonna absolutely rock!”
Snyder, who will be bringing back the Joker in the Bat-Family cross-over story Death of the Family starting this month, and who has had enormous success onBatman this year, added, “I’ve loved Superman since I was a kid, and to be working on him now, with the great Jim Lee, is simply too thrilling for words. It’s a dream come true for me on every front,” Snyder said. “I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just say it’s the Superman story I’d write if I only ever got one chance to write the character. It’s an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like Court of Owls for Batman, it’s a character piece for Clark – it’s going to challenge him to his core. And it’s definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama – the biggest and most earth shaking action I’ve ever done. Can’t wait to see what you all think of it. Couldn’t be more grateful or excited to get the chance to make this one!”
There is no news yet on when the new title will hit shelves next year, or what it will be called, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the news is released.
