Superman: Year One #2 will be in stores next week from DC Comics, by the creative team of Frank Miller and John Romita Jr., and that means that over the next few days, it will likely show up as an EX-X-XCLUSIVE preview on a compliant DC media partner website, part of the quid pro quo relationship between the comic book media and the publishers they cover that drives the click economy of the comics news business.
But we’ve got one first. At first, we were beginning to worry, as our Mysterious Benefactor had yet to send us any pages from next week’s DC Comics ahead of their media partner preview releases, but then, our dog started barking and we heard a rustling on our porch and a knock at the door. We opened the door to find the disembodied floating head of Grant Morrison, astral projecting to our porch, his head a glowing purple hue. Morrison opened his mouth and shrieked, a wail that cut through to our very soul, and then he was gone. Was he ever really here? We may never know, but these 3 pages from Superman: Year One #2 were psychically etched into our minds, along with 1 page from Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #2.
For the rest, pick this up for eight bucks at your comic shop on Wednesday.
