Summary

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES!
DC Icons continues with the coming-of-age story of the world's first super hero, SUPERMAN, from Newbery award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author MATT DE LA PEÑA.

When the dawn breaks, a hero rises.

Clark Kent has always been faster, stronger--better--than everyone around him. But it's not like he's earned his powers . . . yet. Lately it's difficult to hold back and keep his heroics in the shadows. When Clark follows the sound of a girl crying, he comes across Gloria Alvarez and learns that people are disappearing from the Mexican-American and undocumented worker community in Smallville. Teaming up with his best friend, Lana Lang, Clark discovers that before he can save the world, he must save Smallville.

"In his brilliant take on Superman, de la Peña shows us that there's a chance we'll all need to step up like Clark Kent--with or without a cape."
-- Jason Reynolds , New York Times bestselling author of Miles Morales: Spider-Man and Long Way Down

"A wonderful, bold interpretation of a DC icon that aspires to embrace all readers, new and old."
--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Matt de la Peña's Superman is the quintessential American alien. Despite being caught between two worlds, he's everything we love about the Man of Steel: courageous, compassionate, and full of hope."
-- Gene Luen Yang , author of New Super-Man and National Ambassador for Young People's Literature
