Written by bestselling YA science fiction and paranormal author Claudia Gray with art by Eric Zawadzki, House of El: Shadow Threat, is a fascinating look at the intricate social hierarchies, genetic design, and class conflicts on Krypton, Superman’s home planet, as Kryptonians begin to face the dangers that threaten and will ultimately destroy the planet. In this 14 page excerpt, Zahn, teenage son of one of Krypton’s elite ruling families, and Sera, a young Kryptonian soldier, join forces to investigate the mysterious ground quakes threatening Krypton (and the censoring of news about the scale of danger) and learn of the genetic experiments conducted by Jor-El and Lara, scientists and Superman’s Kryptonian parents, aimed at transforming the nature of Kryptonian society. House of El: Shadow Threat by Claudia Gray and Eric Zawadzki, the first book in a graphic novel trilogy, will be published by DC in January 2021.
