The Man of Steel will look a little different in DC Comics’ upcoming anthology mini-series Superman: Red & Blue. The six-part series offers fans a different take on the character by creating comics pared back to his signature red and blue colours.
The new Superman anthology is modelled after DC’s award-winning Batman: Black & White series and features tales from the Clark Kent’s past and present. The stories also combine old-school heroics with deeper insight into what Superman means to society in general.
Superman: Red & Blue #1 will showcase five stories from an impressive lineup of creatives.
- John Ridley and Clayton Henry tell us how Clark Kent confronts a villain who still haunts him, in a story that reveals what Superman means to an entire country.
- Brandon Easton and Steve Lieber take readers to the streets of Metropolis where one hero changes the life of an individual in pain.
- Wes Craig tells a tale of Superman’s early days and the man who inspired him to become the hero we all know and love.
- Marguerite Bennett and Jill Thompson tell the story of a teenage Clark Kent.
- Dan Watters and Dani bring us an outlandish fable about what happens when all colours in the world are stolen.
Additionally, the first 40-page issue in DC’s Prestige Format binding will feature a main cover by Gary Frank, with variant covers from Lee Bermejo and Yoshitaka Amano.
