Ahead of the release of its June 2014 solicitations, DC Comics has provided CBR with an exclusive first look at John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson’s wraparound cover for “Superman” #32.
Joining writer Geoff Johns to discuss their upcoming run on the title, Romita told CBR News that he is, quite simply, excited about this project.

“Doing Superman, in all brutal honesty? Never expected it,” Romita told CBR in discussing “I think the decision, when I first met with [DC Comics co-publisher] Dan [DiDio] and when Geoff came over at breakfast that day in San Diego, I still hadn’t considered what character I wanted to do, until I realized I could apply an old storyline I liked with Superman. When Dan said, “There’s a possibility, that if Geoff could find some time” — and Geoff hadn’t gotten to the table just then. And then Geoff came over. And all of a sudden, it coalesced within a few minutes.”
Johns, Romita Jr. and Janson’s “Superman” run begins June 25 with Issue #32.
