First Look: Batman: Earth One and Superman: Earth One Vol. 2

Released in conjunction with one another since the past day via DC Comics' official blog The Source, here is a first look at two of the most highly anticipated and much awaited graphic novels this year: Batman: Earth One and Superman: Earth One Vol. 2!

Written by acclaimed scribe Geoff Johns and illustrated by the talented Gary Frank, Batman: Earth One serves as Johns' first original graphic novel work, and explores a contemporary look at the origins and beginnings of The Dark Knight. In this story, Batman isn't yet the master detective or watchful protector he is known through legend, and instead we see a Bruce Wayne who is still making mistakes and trying to adjust to a world where shades of gray dominate the society of Gotham City. Above is a sneak peak page of the awesome looking graphic novel, and more pages, as well as info on the story, can be viewed here!

Once again written by J. Michael Straczynski and drawn by Shane Davis, Superman: Earth One Vol. 2 is the long awaited sequel to one of the best original graphic novels of 2010, once again exploring a younger version of the Man of Steel as he tries to find his place in the world. Now that he has finally become Superman, Clark Kent has to find out where his alter ego fits in, especially with the world watching and wondering what his true purpose will be. As he starts to put his life in check, he becomes mixed up with a certain girl next door, and as Lois Lane tries to snoop around Clark's mysteries, a new threat comes in the form of the deadly Parasite. In the end, Superman will have to discover how to use his power, and how he really fits in the world he calls home. Check out more info, pages, and details here!

Expect Batman: Earth One and Superman: Earth One to hit comic book shops and bookstores this 2012!
