In honor of Superman Smashes the Klan’s release, DC Daily is debuting the ultimate Superman conversation between comics legends Gene Luen Yang and Brian Michael Bendis.
Tune in to the DC YouTube channel or the DC Universe app today (5/12) at 1:00 PM PT for Yang and Bendis’ epic one-on-one conversation about their work on the iconic Man of Steel. The conversation will also be a part of WonderCon’s WonderCon@Home programming.
Superman Smashes the Klan – the acclaimed comics series from New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang and artist Gurihiru – is gearing up for its collection release in May, and today, DC debuted the book’s official trailer.
The year is 1946. Teenagers Roberta and Tommy Lee just moved with their parents from Chinatown to the center of Metropolis, home to the famous hero, Superman. Tommy makes friends quickly, while Roberta pines for home. Then one night, the family awakens to find their house surrounded by the Klan of the Fiery Kross! Superman leaps into action, but his exposure to a mysterious green rock has left him weak. Can Roberta and Tommy help him smash the Klan?
Superman Smashes the Klan is inspired by the famous “Clan of the Fiery Cross” story arc that aired on the 1940s Adventures of Superman radio show. The radio serial is widely praised for its impact in changing public opinion toward the Ku Klux Klan, and now, for the first time, Yang and Gurihiru put a fresh twist on the iconic story in graphic form. Geared for teen readers, Superman Smashes the Klan explores Superman’s own identity as an immigrant struggling to assimilate in America while also following the Man of Steel as he saves a Chinese American family from a local chapter of a national hate group called the Klan of the Fiery Kross.
The three-part comics series debuted in 2019 to rave reviews and beginning May 12, readers can enjoy Superman Smashes the Klan as a single volume graphic novel. It’s lettered by Janice Chiang.
The Superman Smashes the Klan official trailer is narrated by Yang. The graphic novel is available to pre-order now and will hit stores and online retailers everywhere books are sold May 12, 2020.
From writer Gene Luen Yang, Marvel Super Hero Shang-Chi will be getting a brand-new limited series this June. Known for his Eisner Award-winning work, American Born Chinese – the first graphic novel ever to be nominated for a National Book Award – Yang will be teaming up with artists Dike Ruan and Philip Tan to craft the modern adventures of Marvel’s beloved master of the martial arts, with an all-new costume designed by artist Jim Cheung!
In this new series, Shang-Chi’s fight for justice will collide with his past. When the hero finds himself pulled back into the fold, no one will be ready for what will be unleashed. With a target on his back after the revitalization of his father’s secret society, the balance of power will shift in an epic tale of succession, family, and betrayal.
Equipped with incredible knowledge and skills in the martial arts, Shang-Chi’s action-packed exploits have been thrilling readers for almost 50 years. Since his introduction, Shang-Chi has become a breakout hero in the Marvel Universe, appearing in multiple series as well as his own successful and acclaimed solo run.
Don’t miss Shang-Chi #1 when it hits stands this June!
