Some exciting news out of the DC Comics camp this morning. Fan favorite Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Essex County, The Nobody) will be writing a new ongoing Superboy comic!
Lemire will be teaming with artist Pier Gallo on the new series later this year. Fans will get their first taste of the book in August with a one shot co-feature in Action Comics #892.
That’s one of Gallo’s sketches here at right.
DCâ€™s Source Blog asked Lemire what to expect from the series…
â€œI am really excited to be taking over the adventures of Conner Kent/Superboy in a new monthly series! The book will combine many of the classic touchstones of the Superboy mythos along with new supporting characters, new villains and new ideas, building a strong foundation that can support the Boy of Steel for years to come. I really want to work with our amazing artist Pier Gallo to combine a classic storytelling feel with a thoroughly modern sensibility and explore what it would really be like to be a super powered teenager, in the heart of rural America.â€
Lemire is one of my favorite writers so I will definitely be picking this series up later this year, will you?
