COMICS: Scott Snyder And Jim Lee's New Superman Series Gets A Title
Forget Django, now it's Superman who's about to get unchained! To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the iconic DC superhero, the publisher will be launching a new ongoing series from the creative team of Scott Snyder (Batman) and Jim Lee (Justice League). Read on for details!
USA Today reports that the untitled Superman series from writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Lee will actually be name Superman Unchained (the first issue goes on sale on June 12th). The title will also feature back-up stories from Synder with artist Dustin Nguyen. May 4th will give fans a glimpse at the new series in a special Free Comic Book Day offering which will focus on the Man of Steel before his return to the big screen in the movie of the same name. "We're all fans and we've all known this character for a long time," Jim Lee says. "You have to fight your natural tendency to do what you know or what you've always thought the character to be. We've been pushing the creators to not be beholden to the past conceits and understandings of Superman. So we will speak to a new generation of readers." Snyder adds: "If I think for a second, 'I'm working on Superman,' you get chills and it becomes very, very intimidating when you think of all the amazing stories that have come before. The way to approach a character as iconic as him is you just come at it from a standpoint of what you love the most about the character, and then write a story that explores that, tear it down and build it back up."
