DC Comics Announces ‘Superman: Lost’ Miniseries From ‘Batman Vs. Deathstroke’ Writer Christopher Priest

Prolific comic book writer Christopher Priest (Vampirella, Justice League, Black Panther) returns to the pages of DC Comics with artist Carlo Pagulayan (Elektra, Wonder Woman, WTC Tribute Book) for the upcoming ten-part series ‘Superman Lost.’ The story will center on Superman returning from a mission only for him to inform his friends that he has been gone for two decades.

DC Comics says on its website,

“After Superman is called away on a routine Justice League mission, Lois Lane awakens to find a complete stranger standing in her living room. The Man of Steel, home much sooner than expected, reveals he has, in fact, been lost in space for 20 years. Nothing and no one seems familiar to him anymore, and the timeless bond between them has been severed…or has it? Can love conquer all? Superman’s 85th-anniversary celebration continues with this all-new blockbuster 10-issue, self-contained series from the creators of the Eisner-nominated Deathstroke series!”

Priest said about the series, “Superman: Lost has been several years in the making and it’s been incredibly difficult for me to keep quiet about this.”

“I am absolutely delighted to be reunited with my Deathstroke team as we explore the emotional toll a tragic loss exacts. A man of steel, from an alien species, is ultimately the most human among us. And finding his way home is only the beginning,” he added.

DC Comics also revealed the first issue cover by Pagulayan and Jason Paz:

The first issue of the limited series is set to debut on March 14th, 2023.

Priest and Pagulayan worked together on the DC Rebirth version of Deathstroke, which included the ‘Batman Vs. Deathstroke’ story arc. In that series, the Dark Knight and the Terminator go head-to-head when Talia al Ghul claims that Damian Wayne is actually the son of Slade Wilson, not Bruce Wayne.
