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 kid 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.
Illustrated by some of the greatest artists in comics today--including Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR), Francis Manapul (DETECTIVE COMICS), Jae Lee (BATMAN/SUPERMAN), Joelle Jones (LADY KILLER), Nick Dragotta (EAST OF WEST) and more with covers by Ryan Sook (ACTION COMICS)--SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN tells the very human story of the Last Son of Krypton.

One might think the very last thing the comics world needed was yet another twist on the Superman storyuntil one picks up this awesome story from Landis (Chronicle, Green Valley). Things start as usual with an alien boy in Smallville and progress swiftly through the different stages of Clark Kents early life. Key characters are seeded in: Lex Luthors genius billionaire megalomaniacwho seems to get richer, smarter, and more tiresome with each DC reinventionBruce Waynes nosy rival superhero, and a highly enthusiastic Jimmy Olson, who in this incarnation is black and gay. Landis brings a fresh and lively humanism to each of these tales, tangling throughout with Clarks uncertain feelings about his powers and fracturing the Smallville narrative with small-town jealousies and a meth-fueled crime rampage. The art runs the gamut from rich manga speed to washed-out jottings, though some might wish theyd picked one style and stuck with it. (Oct.)
