DC Comics has announced a ‘World Of Krypton’ mini-series which will consist of 6 issues and is set to release in December.
The series will be written by Robert Venditti, with interior artwork by Michael Avon Oeming. I cannot wait to read this series, I am a huge fan of Robert Venditti and his take on the character, so it will be interesting to see how he expands his ideas towards the planet that started it all.
Here’s a look at the preview pages. It’s safe to say that Oeming’s artwork is certainly unique, I really love the colours or lack of colours used, I’m not sure if this is consistent throughout the series and the issue but it’s so striking. I’m really looking forward to seeing more of Oeming’s art.
Here is the official write up from DC Comics:
Meanwhile, on Krypton, writer Robert Venditti (GREEN LANTERN, THE SURROGATES) and artist Michael Avon Oeming (POWERS) are going back in time in this modern telling of one of the most storied periods in comics in WORLD OF KRYPTON. When a catastrophic event befalls Krypton’s natural world, it points toward a mass extinction in the making. Jor-El, head of Krypton’s revered Science Council, embarks on a mission to save a world that may already have passed the point of no return.
This six issue miniseries shines new light on the famous characters of Krypton’s past—including Jor-El, General Dru-Zod, and even a young Kara Zor-El—World of Krypton combines action, cosmic wonder, and political intrigue in a story as much about our world as the one on the page. And if that’s not enough to draw you in: there will be puppy Krypto.
Three covers that have been released for issue #1, I have to say each and every one of them are spectacular! From left to right, the standard cover is by Mico Suayan, the variant by A.D’Amico and the 1:25 variant is by Francesco Francavilla.
‘World Of Krypton’ #1 will be released on 7th December and I cannot wait to delve into my second favourite planet once more.
