DC Comics revealed Tony Daniel's new Superman original poster for this year's Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) which takes place from April 26th-28th.
As you may or may not know, DC Comics is also launching a new Man of Steel comic book by superstar artist Jim Lee and best-selling Batman writer, Scott Snyder, which launches in conjunction with the new Man of Steel movie as well as the 75th anniversary of Superman.
In addition, Zack Snyder filmed the Man of Steel in Chicago, and the C2E2 happens to be the biggest convention prior to the movie's debut on June 14th. It's quite possible we may see something from the movie there.
Fans will be able to see the poster featured in Chicago area retailers and on transit trains and buses, with Superman being a major part of the convention's marketing plans.
"Each year I am always encouraged by the tremendous support that DC Entertainment provides at our shows," said Lance Fensterman, Group Vice President for ReedPOP and Show Manager for C2E2, in a statement. "This year is obviously no exception and this early announcement is a great way to be setting the stage for C2E2. The poster art is a key element of our show and a critical part of our marketing strategy. This year's image reflects the strength and dynamism of C2E2 and I am incredibly grateful to Tony Daniel for contributing his time and effort on our behalf. He is a brilliant artist and he has created what will be a lasting image for C2E2 in 2013."
