DC releases trailer for Superman Smashes the Klan

DC Comics is set to collect its acclaimed three-part comic series Superman Smashes the Klan this May, and you can check out a trailer for the graphic novel, narrated by New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang.

The year is 1946. Teenagers Roberta and Tommy Lee just moved with their parents from Chinatown to the center of Metropolis, home to the famous hero, Superman. Tommy makes friends quickly, while Roberta pines for home. Then one night, the family awakens to find their house surrounded by the Klan of the Fiery Kross! Superman leaps into action, but his exposure to a mysterious green rock has left him weak. Can Roberta and Tommy help him smash the Klan?

Inspired by the famous “Clan of the Fiery Cross” story arc that aired on the 1940s Adventures of Superman radio show (which you can listen to above), Superman Smashes the Klan explores Superman’s own identity as an immigrant struggling to assimilate in America while also following the Man of Steel as he saves a Chinese American family from a local chapter of a national hate group called the Klan of the Fiery Kross.
