One might think the very last thing the comics world needed was yet another twist on the Superman story—until one picks up this awesome story from Landis...
-Publishers Weekly

Synopsis

Max Landis, acclaimed screenwriter of the hit film CHRONICLE, presents seven stories from the life of the man who will be the Man of Steel, seven pivotal moments that turned a sometimes good, sometimes angry, sometimes funny, always human, all-American alien into the world’s first superhero.

THIS IS NOT A SUPERMAN COMIC.

This is the story of Clark Kent, a Kansas farm boy who happens to be from another planet. It’s the story of a scared young kid with impossible powers, of a teenage delinquent with a lot to learn, of a reporter with a nose for the truth who’s keeping the biggest secret the world has ever known.

This is not the Superman you know. Not yet.

Illustrated by some of the greatest artists in comics today-including Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR), Francis Manapul (DETECTIVE COMICS), Jae Lee (BATMAN/SUPERMAN), Joëlle Jones (LADY KILLER), Nick Dragotta (EAST OF WEST) and more with covers by Ryan Sook (ACTION COMICS)-SUPERMAN: AMERICAN ALIEN tells the very human story of the Last Son of Krypton.
