Jim Lee & Scott Snyder’s Superman Unchained To Be Released On June 12, 2013


This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel and the superhero from Krypton will be celebrated in a number of ways.

A new movie, Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill will arrive in theaters on June 14th.

DC Comics is putting their top talent in charge of a new comic series titled,

Superman Unchained. Artist Jim Lee and writer Scott Snyder will debut issue # 1 on Wednesday June 12th.

Readers will get their first look at the new series in a special for this year’s “Free Comic Book Day.” Snyder will also be writing back-up stories at the end of each issue with artist Dustin Nguyen.

“The way to approach a character as iconic as him,” said Snyder, “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.”

“The energy we’re bringing to the story and that ‘Hey, we can add new stuff to the canon’ kind of attitude will serve us well,” Lee says.
