Superman: Year One by writer Frank Miller and artist John Romita Jr. – originally annnounced at 2017’s Comic-Con International: San Diego as a 100-page graphic novel – is now scheduled to launch June 19 as a three-issue series in a special, large-format size.
While DC didn’t provide further details on the larger format, the Black Label imprint title is scheduled to run every-other-month with a collected edition following on November 12.
Superman: Year One is described by the publisher as the “definitive origin story” for the Man of Steel
“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,” reads DC’s description of the title. “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.”
Superman: Year One was originally scheduled to debut in August 2018 and was later pushed back to November 2018. The first issue is now scheduled to debut June 19, 2019.
