#1 NEW YORK TIMES BETSELLER!
This is not a Superman comic. This is the story of Clark Kent, a Kansas farm boy who happens to be from another planet. It’s the story of a scared young boy with impossible powers, of a teenage delinquent with a lot to learn, of a reporter with a nose for the truth who’s keeping the biggest secret the world has ever known.
This is not the Superman you know. Not yet.
Max Landis, acclaimed screenwriter of the hit film Chronicle, presents seven stories from the life of the man who will be the Man of Steel—seven pivotal moments that turned a sometimes good, sometimes angry, sometimes funny, always human, all-American alien into the world’s first superhero.
Illustrated by some of the greatest artists in comics today—including Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR), Francis Manapul (DETECTIVE COMICS), Jae Lee (BATMAN/SUPERMAN), Joëlle Jones (LadyKiller), Nick Dragotta (East of West) and more—SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN tells the very human story of the Last Son of Krypton.
Collects SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN #1-7.
