By Josh Wilding - 10/23/2012
The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times best-selling graphic novel SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE by acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and superstar artist Shane Davis is here! Young Clark Kent continues his journey toward becoming the World’s Greatest Super Hero but finds dealing with humanity to be a bigger challenge than he ever imagined! From a ruthless dictator to a new love interest who’s NOT Lois Lane, things are never easy for this emerging Man of Steel. And the worst is yet to come, in the form of a man-monster with an insatiable appetite, the Parasite! The only thing that might appease his hunger is The Last Son of Krypton! But that will also mean he will have Superman’s powers without his conscience, and Kal-El learns to live without powers beyond those of mere mortals.




SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 2
Written by J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI
Pencils & Cover by SHANE DAVIS

earth one batman...crap!
superpooper - 10/23/2012, 4:04 PM
I like the glowing red eyes...but it's hard to look menacing in a red and blue jump suit with a cape. I dunno. Superman needs to be more of a badass.
Jollem - 10/23/2012, 4:06 PM
i need more man of steel news
TheTank - 10/23/2012, 4:11 PM
Enough with the friggen eyes glowing red on every shot of Superman these days, its retarded, it doesn't make him look bad ass, makes him look like an asshole.
jimoakley666 - 10/23/2012, 4:16 PM
Hmmm. Looks a bit crappy to my eyes.
superotherside - 10/23/2012, 4:16 PM
About time! The first book was one of the best Superman stories ever!
TrueBlue - 10/23/2012, 4:30 PM
It's funny how most of CBM was crapping on this when it first came out because Clark looked too "emo". Now that we read it everyone is excited for the next volume.
titansupes - 10/23/2012, 4:31 PM
Why is Superman so skinny? Come on.

I'm still buying it though.
RSDhillon - 10/23/2012, 4:34 PM
@TrueBlue
Maybe that's because...it TURNED OUT GOOD?

I loved Superman: Earth One. Can't wait to read this.
Also, I just finished Batman: Earth One! Pretty Good!
Moakynubs - 10/23/2012, 4:39 PM
I've loved Earth One so far.. it needs to be a bigger line.
Ancar - 10/23/2012, 4:57 PM
God, how i hated that Justin Bieber face! WRONG! Superman for Twilight readers!
chujong - 10/23/2012, 4:58 PM
The 3rd panel (with "Power Consumes"), did Superman fried all of those people with his heat vision? I haven't read Earth One but is he supposed to be evil or something?
damntree - 10/23/2012, 5:19 PM
@TheTank - How does glowing eyes make someone look like an asshole? Oh nevermind, I just thought back to every time I remember someone being an asshole and you're right; they all had glowing eyes. How could I have not noticed that before?

You could just say you don't like it; there's no need to make up nonsensical shit.
Shadowelfz - 10/23/2012, 5:26 PM
ficken awesome!
laughterman26 - 10/23/2012, 5:29 PM
badass art, whos the girl?
TheLight - 10/23/2012, 5:41 PM
@chujong,

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. Superman now fries people alive? I'm excited for Volume 2, but WTF?

@laughterman26,

Obviously, someone hotter that Lois.
BlueHawaiiSurfer - 10/23/2012, 5:49 PM
OMG!!! I can read the origin of the Man of Steel AGAIN!?!?! Nooooo...Waaaaay!!!! :o|
Devastator335 - 10/23/2012, 7:26 PM
Vol. 1 was probably one of the best Superman stories I ever read. Awesome, can't wait for Vol. 2! ;)
SigmaCenturion - 10/23/2012, 7:38 PM
Hopefully in all the other comics he gets his shorts back.
MJPETTY7 - 10/23/2012, 7:42 PM
LOOKING GOOD!!! I loved Volume One, so I can't wait for this next volume!!!!
113 - 10/23/2012, 9:04 PM
Superman doesn't kill! PERIOD
DioFoRio - 10/23/2012, 9:13 PM
can't stand davis' art
breakUbatman - 10/23/2012, 9:30 PM
@ damntree

LOL

I could list a few assholes with glowing eyes

The Sentry
Dark Phoenix
Anakin Skywalker

Generally glowing eyes mean a turn to the dark side or the person is about to open up the biggest can of whup-ass.

Superman can't/shouldn't be looking like that all the time.
JoseTheKingOfTheNorth - 10/23/2012, 10:06 PM
Definitely buying this!!
DCjohnny - 10/24/2012, 3:46 AM
loved the first one .... waiting for this one to come out
NorrinRaddical - 10/24/2012, 4:31 AM
that artwork is cancer on the eyes
ClarkFarley2012 - 10/24/2012, 5:36 AM
I'll definitely be picking this up. Vol. 1 was great.
TheTank - 10/24/2012, 5:42 AM
@damntree

Because he's Superman, he doesn't need to constantly "flex" like that
DiLusso - 10/24/2012, 8:05 AM
Preordered this ages ago
Dedpool - 10/24/2012, 9:07 AM
Can't wait! Loved Vol. 1 and batman Earth1 too!!
luckylu - 10/24/2012, 3:03 PM
