NYCC: Scott Snyder & Jim Lee Announce New Superman Comic

The rumors started earlier this summer and now we’ve got word that it’s true, Scott Snyder and Jim Lee will be making a Superman comic. While there is no title or release date for the project (the rumor is Superman: Man of Steel), it has been confirmed by DC at the New York Comic Con.

“As a huge fan of Scott’s writing, I’m looking forward to drawing Superman as much as I am reading Scott’s story as it unfolds,” Lee said. “Scott’s crafted a truly epic yet personal story which will demonstrate without a doubt why Superman remains the most iconic hero of the modern age. 2013 is gonna absolutely rock!”

Writer Scott Snyder teased this: “I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just say it’s the Superman story I’d write if I only ever got one chance to write the character. It’s an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like Court of Owls for Batman, it’s a character piece for Clark – it’s going to challenge him to his core. And it’s definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama – the biggest and most earth shaking action I’ve ever done. Can’t wait to see what you all think of it. Couldn’t be more grateful or excited to get the chance to make this one!”

One would think the newly-announced project will launch in March for the 75th anniversary of Superman. Check back here for more details on the project as they emerge and check out a piece of Lee’s art for the project below.
