Now that it's officially up for pre-order on Amazon, I can finally talk about the project I've been hammering away at for the last few months. The Superman Files is a scrapbook of sorts on the life and times of the Man of Steel. Just as I did with its predecessor, The Batman Files, I'll be handling the writing portion of the book, while Lionheart Books will be tackling the design, pulling (and in some cases altering) hundreds of illustrations from the comics, as well as commissioning plenty of new artwork and hand crafted "artifacts" from Superman's past.
Coming in at over 300 pages, this massive hardcover aims to be the most comprehensive life story of Clark Kent ever attempted. Told through the use of Superman's own journal entries, faux newspaper articles, Justice League crime files, schematics, and hundreds of "photographs" of the Last Son of Krypton in action, The Superman Files is going to really dig into the life of Superman in ways we've never seen before.
I'll be sure to post a few sample pages as soon as I get the okay, so keep checking back. From what I've seen so far, though, this book is going to look amazing...
