It’s been rumored for weeks, but now we have official confirmation from DC that writer Scott Snyder and artist Jim Lee are teaming up on a new Superman comic in 2013. The yet-untitled book will be the first time that the duo has ever worked together, and while there are few actual details about the series as of now, the creative team alone should sell fans on it.

"I've loved Superman since I was a kid, and to be working on him now, with the great Jim Lee, is simply too thrilling for words. It's a dream come true for me on every front,” Snyder said to the company’s blog. “I don't want to give too much away, so I'll just say it's the Superman story I'd write if I only ever got one chance to write the character. It's an exploration of everything I love and am fascinated by about him. Like "Court of Owls" for Batman, it's a character piece for Clark - it's going to challenge him to his core. And it's definitely epic in scope, with huge action and drama - the biggest and most earth shaking action I've ever done. Can't wait to see what you all think of it. Couldn't be more grateful or excited to get the chance to make this one!"

We’ll have more information on this new comic book series as it becomes available. For now, check out the first piece of promo art by Lee below:
