New Superman comics reveal that the Man of Steel is about to share his secret identity as Clark Kent to the world.
According to the descriptions for two upcoming comics: Superman #18 and Lois Lane #7, new challenges are about to push Superman into sharing his secret identity to the world, not only changing the dynamic of the current DC Comics universe but also the dynamic between Clark Kent and Lois Lane.
You can read the description for Superman #18 down below:
“With Superman’s family scattered across the galaxy, our hero must confront some of his greatest concerns about himself and his place in the galaxy. Legendary artist Ivan Reis joins writer Brian Michael Bendis as they introduce the biggest change in the Man of Steel’s life ever!”
Superman #18 was written by Brian Michael Bendis featuring art and cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. It will be available in comic book stores on December 11, 2019. Meanwhile, here is the description for Lois Lane #7, which will tie into Superman #18:
“Someone wanting to kill Lois Lane is nothing new for the famed reporter, but is it because of something she knows or something she’s about to uncover? Plus, this issue ties to the events of December’s Superman #18 and the gigantic status quo shift for both Lois and her husband, Superman, when the Man of Steel decides to reveal his identity to the world.
With the war against Leviathan starting to pick up, it looks like the premiere couple of the DC Universe has a lot to deal with. But will they be able to pick up the pieces and find away to outsmart the newest intelligence organization in the world?”
Lois Lane #17 was written by Greg Rucka and features art and cover by Mike Perkins. It will be available in comic book stores on January 1, 2020.
