Super Genius will reveal the real-life origin story of Superman’s creators in a new graphic novel. Writer Julian Voloj (Ghetto Brother: Warrior to Peacemaker) and Thomas Campi (Magritte) examine the friendship between Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel in Truth, Justice, and the American Way: The Joe Shuster Story. The 180-page graphic novel will be in stores on April 24. MSRP for the hardcover is $24.99. The softcover has an MSRP of $19.99.

This year marks Superman’s 80th anniversary and the 1000th issue of Action Comics, the series that introduced the Man of Steel to the world. DC will be releasing a previously unpublished Shuster and Siegel story in a commemorative hardcover, also due out in April (see “DC to Release Lost Siegel and Shuster Superman Story”).
