Color art from Jock & Max Landis’ ‘Adventures of Superman’ tale

Jock has debuted what I believe is the first look at color art from his upcoming Adventures of Superman collaboration with Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis. The Eisner Award-winning artist released an inked page from the two-part story, titled “The Sound of One Hand Clapping,” last month.

As the two pages indicate, it’s poised to be a rather nontraditional Superman tale, as it pits the Man of Steel against the Clown Prince of Crime, who usually busies himself with a more grounded nemesis.

Their digital-first story is joined in DC Comics’ January Adventures of Superman roster by B. Clay Moore and Gabriel Rodriguez’s three-part “Exposed,” Fabian Nicieza and Phil Hester’s “The Coming of … Sugar & Spike,” and Ron Marz and Evan “Doc” Shaner’s three-part “Only Child.”

The new Adventures of Superman lineup debuts Jan. 6 with“Exposed”; Landis and Jock’s contribution follows that storyline on Jan. 27.
