DC Comics: Superman will be the focus of a new miniseries

Superman: Lost , this is the name of the new work that will tell about the man of steel, was officially announced last Friday . Ten issues in all , it will be launched on the market starting next March 14th . The mini-series will see Christopher Priest return to action together, for the story, and Carlo Pagulayan, for the drawings: the couple had already collaborated, on behalf of Eisner, on the occasion of Deathstroke, also from DC.

About this new project, Priest expressed himself as follows:

Superman: Lost took several years of work and it was incredibly difficult for me not to be able to say anything. I am absolutely delighted to rejoin my Deathstroke team as we explore the emotional toll that comes with a tragic loss. A man of steel, of an alien species, is ultimately the most humane among us. And finding your way home will only be the beginning.

The opening volume of this miniseries will be titled Superman's Odyssey Of Solitude! (Superman's Odyssey of Solitude) and will be thirty-two pages long. As we are used to seeing by now, the work will be available with a standard cover (designed by Jason Paz) which will be sold at a price of $4.99 and in a variant version.

More specifically, there will be two variants: in black and white (work by Joe Quesada) and a foil version (also designed by Jason Paz); both will be available at a price of $5.99 .

This is the synopsis of the first volume: After Superman has been called away on a routine Justice League mission, Lois Lane wakes up to find a complete stranger standing in her living room. The Man of Steel, having returned home much earlier than expected, reveals that he has been lost in space for 20 years. Nothing and no one seems familiar to him anymore, and the timeless bond between them has been severed… or has it? Can love conquer all?

In short, if the fate of the cinematic Superman, played by Henry Cavill, does not look promising, the celebrations for the 85th anniversary of the Man of Steel are instead bringing some welcome news for fans all over the world world!
