New ‘Superman: Earth One’ Vol. 2 Preview Packs Parasitism and Murder Aplenty

Celebrating its Superman Facebook page‘s 2,043,695 and counting “likes,” DC Comics has released two new preview pages from Superman: Earth One Vol. 2 by J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis. Due out October 31, the OGN will explore a darker side to the young Superman, as demonstrated by a cover featuring the Man of Steel floating solemnly over a pile of burning human skulls. This brand of literal face-melting is repeated in one of the new preview pages, as Supes (presumably) fantasizes about murdering an evil dictator with his incendiary heat vision. Meanwhile, the other page is equally murder-y, this time on behalf of the evil Parasite, who sort of bears a passing resemblance to the X-Men character Maggot. You can scope out the two new Superman: Earth One Vol. 2 pages after the cut.

The highly anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times best-selling graphic novel SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE by acclaimed writer J. Michael Straczynski and superstar artist Shane Davis is here! Young Clark Kent continues his journey toward becoming the World’s Greatest Super Hero but finds dealing with humanity to be a bigger challenge than he ever imagined! From a ruthless dictator to a new love interest who’s NOT Lois Lane, things are never easy for this emerging Man of Steel. And the worst is yet to come, in the form of a man-monster with an insatiable appetite, the Parasite! The only thing that might appease his hunger is The Last Son of Krypton! But that will also mean he will have Superman’s powers without his conscience, and Kal-El learns to live without powers beyond those of mere mortals.
