Scott Snyder, Jim Lee to team up on new Superman title

by Matthew Price Published: October 11, 2012

DC Comics has announced a new Superman title by Scott Snyder and Jim Lee to be released in 2013.

“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 at DCComics.com. “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!”

The new title is to launch with a “Man of Steel” movie also set for 2013.

“I’ve loved Superman since I was a kid, and to be working on him now, with the great Jim Lee, is simply too thrilling for words. It’s a dream come true for me on every front,” Snyder said at DCComics.com. “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!”

Scott Snyder writes the best-selling “Batman” title.  DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee recently drew”Justice League” with writer Geoff Johns and is the artist of the best-selling “Batman: Hush.”
