Finalist blurb: Boasting flawless art with a classic superhero feel, New Superman is here to stay. Chinese teen Kong Kenan goes from schoolyard bully to national hero overnight, and gets all the complications that come along with being beholden to a secret government agency for his new powers. The characters seem so real they make incredible situations believable, and plot twists galore keep readers guessing. Kenan’s ego is terrifying and hilarious. Politics, pride and powers all come together perfectly in this collection of issues 1-6.
