Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
Does the new Superman sparkle in the sun? Does he have an unquenchable thirst for blood? Does he like to play intense games of baseball with his family while Muse blares in the background?
Emo Superman will be featured in Superman: Earth One, a new graphic novel written by J. Michael Straczynski, with emo artwork by Shane Davis.
The graphic novel will re-tell the Superman origin story, but with a Twilight/hipster-esque vibe to it.
Here's what DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio had to say about the graphic novel:
"We wanted to tell a story that's hip, sexy, and moody."
What Superhero will get the hipster/emo/Twilight treatment next? Are we gonna see a young Taylor-Lautner-like Batman walking around the pages of an upcoming graphic novel, completely shirtless?
