Description

The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling
graphic novel Superman: Earth One by acclaimed writer J. Michael
Straczynski and superstar artist Shane Davis is here!
Young Clark Kent continues his journey toward becoming the World's Greatest
Super Hero but finds dealing with humanity to be a bigger challenge than he ever
imagined! From a ruthless dictator to a new love interest who's NOT Lois Lane,
things are never easy for this emerging Man of Steel. And the worst is yet to
come, in the form of a man-monster with an insatiable appetite, the Parasite!
The only thing that might appease his hunger is The Last Son of Krypton! But
that will also mean he will have Superman's powers without his conscience, and
Kal-El learns to live without powers beyond those of mere mortals.

Review quote

"Eisner Award winner Straczynski (Babylon 5; Amazing Spider-Man) does more than contemporize Superman's story: his hero is a wild card who grew up alienated and isolated, whose human parents' wishes for him are more about self-actualization than doing good deeds, and whose birth parents have tasked him with avenging Krypton against its enemies...Davis's artwork combines classic superhero design with contemporary detail and a slightly dark edge. Fine stuff."--Library Journal
