by Olly MacNamee
The third and final part of the throughly entertaining, relevant and personal all-ages read, Superman Smashes The Klan, comes out tomorrow from DC Comics. Written by Gene Luen Yang (who is absolutely smashing it over on The Terrifics) with art and cover by Gurihiru, it may be a story based on a 1940s radio show, but it’s still very much relevant in this current day and age. Check out one of the best Superman stories of the past few years on 19th Feb. 2020.
When the Klan invades the newspaper’s office, they kidnap Lois Lane, Perry White, and Inspector Henderson. The Klan’s attacks have separated our heroes, forcing Roberta and Jimmy Olsen to step up and help save the Daily Planet staff. But the Klan has one more surprise to reveal. In order to save his friends and stop the Klan once and for all, Superman must face his own identity to unleash his full potential and ultimately accept who he really is. Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) concludes his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan.
