Get ready for SUPERMAN: TRUE BRIT, an original hardcover graphic novel with a new take on the Superman legend, courtesy of writer Kim "Howard" Johnson (Monty Python: The First 280 Years) and with some help from, in his comics debut, Monty Python's John Cleese (Fawlty Towers, A Fish Called Wanda). And with art by fan-favorites John Byrne (JLA, DOOM PATROL) & Mark Farmer (JLA: ANOTHER NAIL), this book is sure to be Super!
In this humorous, veddy British tale, the Last Son of Krypton's rocket ship crash-lands in an English town even smaller than Smallville, where the infant Kal-El is taken in by adoptive parents - the Clarks - who raise their son Colin to hide his powers, because the worst thing anyone can do is stand out from the crowd. But when Colin grows up to become a mild-mannered reporter working for the Daily Smear, a powerful tabloid newspaper dedicated to uncovering the biggest story of the century, he finds that the key to his success may be in going public.
