Jeff Lemire to write Superboy ongoing for DC Comics

Jeff Lemire, along with artist Pier Gallo, will be launching a SUPERBOY ongoing series later this year,  debuting the series in a backup feature in August’s ACTION COMICS #892.

“I am really excited to be taking over the adventures of Conner Kent/Superboy in a new monthly series! The book will combine many of the classic touchstones of the Superboy mythos along with new supporting characters, new villains and new ideas, building a strong foundation that can support the Boy of Steel for years to come. I really want to work with our amazing artist Pier Gallo to combine a classic storytelling feel with a thoroughly modern sensibility and explore what it would really be like to be a super powered teenager, in the heart of rural America.”

Pier Gallo will illustrate SUPERBOY for writer Jeff Lemire.

Newsarama later caught up with Lemire to ask him a few questions about the Superboy project.
