Superman : American alien by Max Landis( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hollywood screenwriter and Eisner Award nominee Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, Adventures of Superman) joins forces with top comics artists including Jock, Francis Manapul and Jae Lee to bring you Superman: American Alien, a new epic that chronicles the life of Clark Kent and his development into the archetypal hero he will eventually become. But these are not the stories of the iconic "Superman" as you know him, but of the soft-spoken, charming, often-funny Kansas farm-boy behind the Man of Steel. With the tone of each issue ranging from heartwarming and simple, to frighteningly gritty and violent, to sexy, sun-kissed and funny, Superman: American Alien is unlike anything you've seen before."--
