In anticipation of DC Comics' latest Black Label miniseries Superman: Year One by Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr., the publisher has released a new teaser image from the story.
The image shows a young Clark Kent admiring the vast cornfields of his new hometown Smallville, Kansas. The teaser resembles a worn postcard from the fictional Midwestern town.

Miller and Romita, Jr., who previously worked together retelling Daredevil's origins in Daredevil: The Man Without Fear, reunite for the three-issue miniseries. It explores the earliest days of the Man of Steel, years before his iconic appearance in Miller's landmark story Batman: The Dark Knight Returns.
Updating Superman's origins in an out-of-continuity adventure, each issue of the miniseries comes in an oversized prestige format. The graphic novel collection is expected to be released this November. Advance previews of the debut issue show Clark in Smallville attempting to balance his newfound powers with fitting in at school, where he is a social outsider among his peers.
Frank Miller and John Romita, Jr.'s Superman: Year One #1 debuts on June 19 from DC Comics.
