Sina Grace, writer and artist, and book colorist Cris Peter announced a YA graphic novel releasing on October 3, 2023. Superman: The Harvests of Youth reacquaints us with a young Clark Kent navigating high school in Smallville. The story takes us on a journey through Clark’s eyes as he deals with the mortality of those around him, teenage isolation and the pressures and fears of growing up. The book features long-time fan favorites such as Lana Lang. It introduces us to new characters as well. 

Another YA graphic novel hits the scene on September 27 by New York Timesbestselling writer Kami Garcia and artist Isaac Goodhart. Constantine: Distorted Illusions is a young Constantine reimagined. The book gives a fresh take on the character but promises the familiarity of defects and weaknesses. The story gives us a glimpse of John as the lead singer of a band in the United States. When the band dabbles in magic, the spell gets out of hand, bringing about consequences John may not be able to handle.
