Frank Miller And John Romita Jr. Open Up About Superman: Year One

Superman: Year One is going to surprise you.

That’s pretty astonishing when you consider that we’re talking about a character who debuted in 1938, written and drawn by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr., two stalwarts of comics that have been working in the medium for several decades. And yet, Superman: Year One still manages to feel unexpected, distinct and like a new high-water mark for the character and all those involved in the story’s creation. Part of this is undoubtedly due to the format and imprint that the comic is a part of. 

Releasing in three, large-format periodicals in June, August and October of this year, Superman: Year One is the third new book to come out as part of the DC Black Label line. However, it’s also clearly a labor of love for the two men behind it, as we learned when DC spoke to both of them about their much-anticipated new project.

Superman: Year One #1 by Frank Miller, John Romita Jr., Danny Miki and Alex Sinclair is available in print and digital on June 19, 2019.

In addition to the cover art, DC has released a new description for the series:

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. 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.

Romita Cover Final_5644dff9677697.71329072

Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade is a one-shot set before the events of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, which will be punching its way into comic shops in 2016.

Nearly thirty years ago, Frank Miller introduces us to an older, far more wizened Batman late in his career. But the newest Dark Knight project, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade, will take us back to over ten years before this classic work, when Batman was still actively fighting crime with his previous Robin, Jason Todd, at his side, revealing the previously untold story of how Jason met his end in Frank Miller’s Dark Knight universe and featuring the first appearance of Miller’s Joker since his death in The Dark Knight Returns.

Co-written by the Dark Knight III duo of Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello, Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade will be a 64-page prestige format one-shot drawn by legendary artist John Romita, Jr..

Dark Knight Returns: The Last Crusade #1 by Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello and John Romita, Jr. will be in stores on February 17, 2016.

In an exclusive interview, artist John Romita, Jr. discusses this eye-opening new chapter of the Dark Knight saga. Read the interview HERE.

DC has announced a prequel to the seminal Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello and John Romita Jr.

Revealed at the “DC Comics – Heroes To The Core” panel at New York Comic Con, this untitled series will debut in February.

This would be an expansion of the Dark Knight related work Miller and Azzarello are already doing with Dark Knight III: The Master Race, and a reunion of sorts for Miller and Romita Jr. as they worked together on Daredevil: The Man Without Fear.
