Chris Roberson on Superman’s trip through the American Heartland

Superman’s walk across the country is a long one, but he won’t be alone; writer Chris Roberson will have several of the DCU’s biggest heroes join him at different points of his journey. Take it away, Chris: “On an unconscious level, Superman’s return to the American Heartland in an attempt to reconnect with the values that he has begun to question, and to revisit the kinds of places where he had his earliest formative experiences As 2011 unfolds, we’ll see Superman get to the real heart of this journey, both geographically and emotionally, as he encounters allies and enemies that remind him of key moments in his past. An encounter with the Flash in Colorado serves to remind Superman of the time he and teenaged Lex Luthor shared a detention hall. A meeting with Batman in the Utah desert calls to mind the time Clark Kent and a young Bruce Wayne defended a village in Bhutran from Vandal Savage, who was searching for the road to Nanda Parbat. And of course, those are only two of the eight stories we’ll be telling.” – Chris Roberson Tags : chris roberson , eddy barrows , j. michael straczynski , j.p. mayer , john cassaday , Superman This entry was posted on Tuesday, January 4th, 2011 at 11:00 am and is filed under From the Creators .

Superman’s new foe isn’t from outer space

The “Grounded” storyline continues right here as Superman visits Mt. Prospect – a suburb just southeast of Chicago. In this issue, Superman discovers that there is a darkness even more immense than outer space… One buried deep inside the human heart. The first of the “Grounded” letter write-in destinations, this town was suggested by Annette Kowalczyk of Mt. Prospect, Illinois. Annette has lived in Mt. Prospect for 43 years, raising her three children (and now seven grandchildren) in the area. Thanks for being a Superman fan all these years! Issue #705 is written by J. Michael Straczynski comes with some excellent art by Eddy Barrows, J.P. Mayer and Wellington Dias. SUPERMAN #705 lands in comic stores today.
