SUPERMAN: STRENGTH #1 (OF 3)

Written by Scott McCloud; Art by Aluir Amancio and Terry Austin; Cover by Alex Ross

What is the true source of Superman's strength? Find out in this 3-issue Prestige Format miniseries written by Scott McCloud (UNDERSTANDING COMICS, REINVENTING COMICS) with art by Aluir Amancio (SUPERMAN ADVENTURES) and Terry Austin (Uncanny X-Men, SUPERMAN ADVENTURES) and astounding painted covers by Alex Ross!

A young Clark Kent watches in awe as his supernatural abilities steadily grow, and he stands at the brink of a new world of power and possibilities. But for the first time, he finds reason to question the limits that his adopted parents have placed on him.

Confronting the consequences of his actions, Superman must forge in steel the moral world-view that proves to be the source of Superman's real strength!
