Superman Flying And Eating Rice In New Japanese Comic

D.C. Comics and Japanese publisher Kodansha are joining forces for a new gourmet-themed comic called Superman vs. Meshi: Superman no Hitori Meshi or Superman vs. Food: Meal For One. In it, the Man of Steel travels around, eating at various restaurants in Japan at lunch hour.

According to the official announcement, Satoshi Miyagawa is writing the comic while it will be drawn by Kai Kitago. Miyagawa is famous for creating the Space Battleship Tiramisu manga, which was changed into manga.

This is the third collaboration between D.C. and Kodansha. Earlier, the two joined forces for Batman Justice Buster, with Tomohiro Shimoguchi and Eiichi Shimizu giving the Dark Knight getting a fresh, new spin. Earlier, both Shimoguchi and Shimizu teamed up for Getter Robo and the Ultraman manga adaptation.

The second collab was Wanope Joker or One Operation Joker, in which the villain protects a baby Bruce Wayne.

It’s exciting to see the takes from manga authors and artists because they do feel so different. Like, Superman flying around, eating Japanese food?

The upcoming hero comic will be available on June 22 in the manga magazine Evening, with the first chapter will come out in at around 30 pages. It will also be available through the publisher’s Comic Days website.
