When the dawn breaks, a hero rises.

His power is beyond imagining.

Clark Kent has always been faster, stronger--better--than everyone around him. But he wasn't raised to show off, and drawing attention to himself could be dangerous. Plus, it's not like he's earned his powers . . . yet.

But power comes with a price.

Lately it's difficult to hold back and keep his heroics in the shadows. When Clark follows the sound of a girl crying, he comes across Gloria Alvarez and discovers a dark secret lurking in Smallville. Turns out, Clark's not the only one hiding something. Teaming up with his best friend, Lana Lang, he throws himself into the pursuit of the truth. What evil lies below the surface of his small town? And what will it cost Clark to learn about his past as he steps into the light to become the future Man of Steel? Because before he can save the world, he must save Smallville.

The fourth installment of the DC Icon series is finally here! “Superman: Dawnbreaker” is the book I have been waiting for. De la Peña takes a beloved character, creates a Smallville, very similar to towns in America, weaves an immigration subplot into a superhero mystery that is sure to capture the hearts of old and new fans alike. I am a huge Superman fan. I have been since I was a little girl when Christopher Reeve flew his way into my heart. There is no other superhero like him, and no other that I love like this. When I found out Matt de la Peña was writing this one, it made this book much more special for me because of the diversity I knew he would bring to the “Superman Universe.” This book captured me from the get go. It is well written and so relevant to our changing country today. With a cast of new — yet familiar — characters, “Dawnbreaker” is bold, powerful and beautiful. A timely Superman, perfect for a new generation. Matt de la Peña’s Superman is brilliant!
