After it was delayed from its previous release date, DC has announced that Frank Miller and John Romita Jr's Superman: Year One will finally be coming out this June. This was originally announced as a 100-page graphic novel but will now be a three-issue prestige mini-series. It's something a lot of fans have been waiting for and we can't wait to see how it reads.

Part of DC's creator-focused Black Label line of comic books, all three issues will be 64 pages (including advertisements) and will be priced at $7.99 each. Numerous covers have also been revealed, some of which look great while others look a bit weird. That's basically John Romita Jr's artstyle in a nutshell but at least the guy managed to make his mark.

Here is what DC told Newsarama about the series:
