14-03-23 | The Man of Steel is about to embark on an epic 10 part adventure through the vast emptiness of space. Superman Lost hurls the iconic character into the unknown as part of the character’s 85th anniversary celebrations. Proud creators Christopher Priest and Carlo Pagulayan have been slaving away for several years to make the series a reality.
Preview artwork divulges Superman’s dramatic return home. As Lois Lane comments she hadn’t expected him home so soon, Superman reveals that from his perspective he has in fact been lost for two decades. The exact nature of his lonely journey is being kept under wraps. Whatever path Superman Lost takes, it promises to be a trip well worth the price of admission.
Superman’s journey is an opportunity for clean storytelling. The type that is not dependent on references, continuity and insider knowledge. The premise is a strong one, as are the visuals. Superman’s new costume, a handsome white suit with a golden emblem, has been well received by the community. Will Superman Lost live up to the hype? You can find out next week, when the first of ten issues goes on sale.
