DC Announces ‘Superman: Lost’ From Christopher Priest And Carlo Pagulayan
by Olly MacNamee
With the return of Superman to Earth and a relaunch for the Man of Steel imminent, it would seem that DC Comics are finally showing Clark some much needed love. After all, it can’t always be about Batman, right? And as a fan for the big blue boy scout, I for one welcome the announcement that the Deathstroke team of writer Christopher Priest (Black Adam) and artist Carlo Pagulayan (Deathstroke) are reuniting for a 10-issue Superman series, Superman: Lost, debuting March 14th, 2023.
Here’s Priest with more on the announcement, as well as a first look:
“Superman: Lost has been several years in the making and it’s been incredibly difficult for me to keep quiet about this. I am absolutely delighted to be reunited with my Deathstroke team as we explore the emotional toll a tragic loss exacts. A man of steel, from an alien species, is ultimately the most human among us. And finding his way home is only the beginning.”
As for the plot:
“SUPERMAN’S ODYSSEY OF SOLITUDE! After Superman is called away on a routine Justice League mission, Lois Lane awakens to find a complete stranger standing in her living room. The Man of Steel, home much sooner than expected, reveals he has, in fact, been lost in space for 20 years. Nothing and no one seem familiar to him anymore, and the timeless bond between them has been severed…or has it? Can love conquer all? Superman’s 85th anniversary celebration continues with this all new blockbuster 10-issue, self-contained series from the creators of the Eisner-nominated Deathstroke series!”
