DC creates a new imprint "Young Animal" which will be run by Gerald Way

They have four books in development.

  • Doom Patrol
  • Shade, The Changing Girl
  • Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye
  • Mother Panic

Doom Patrol:

This September, in the spirit of Grant Morrison's legendary run on the series, along with other classic incarnations of the characters, writer Gerard Way and artist Nick Derington will put their unique stamp on the world's strangest heroes taking on the universe's strangest villains.

Shade, The Changing Girl:

An alien takes over the body of a 16-year-old bully and must face the challenges of being a stranger in a foreign land, plus the consequences of a life she didn't live. Star Wars’ Moving Target writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone explore themes of madness, alienation, and the bizarre in this sci-fi thriller, with covers by Becky Cloonan. The new series hits shelves in October.

Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye:

Writers Gerard Way and Jon Rivera, along with artist Michael Avon Oeming take readers on a strange adventure with DC Comics’ Silver Age character Cave Carson, his cybernetic eye and his college–age daughter as they travel to dark places deep in the earth and mind. Catch this new series in October.

Mother Panic:

Meet Violet Paige, a celebrity heiress by day and brutal vigilante by night as she takes on the underbelly of Gotham City’s high society. Hitting shelves in November, the series is written by Gerard Way and Jody Houser with art by Tommy Lee Edwards.

Do comics companies do like a one year edition which has all the comics that release every month for a particular title over the course of one year?

I'm not sure. I do know they have trade paper backs of one particular story that releases after that storyline wraps up.

I wish they would just do one book a year with all the issues from one title. Assuming there is a new comic every month. Would make collecting so much easier.

I got three DC Rebirth books yesterday.

  • Justice League: Rebirth #1
  • Batman #2
  • Green Lanterns #2

Looking foward to the Young Animals line from DC Comics.

Each book will be in the DC Universe loosely.

Mother Panic is set in Gotham and will reference some of the other DC characters but it would be similar to old Vertigo when they had DC characters and was loosely connected to the DC Universe but would mainly just interact with each other.

Doom Patrol launches on September 14th.

Shade and Cave Carson launch in October.

Mother Panic launches in November.

10.29 million been shipped to comic book shops in North America in the month of August.

The last time shops ordered that many comics was in December of 1996.

It is a combination of DC Rebirth being successful and having multiple comic book movies releasing in the next 4 years.

This is from a few weeks ago but this would be funny in a movie.

Kite Man's real name is Charles Brown.

February Solicitations for DC Comics!

I can't wait for this story arc from Detective Comics!

Starting with the 950th issue of Detective Comics Cassandra Cain will have a more prominant role in that story arc starting with that issue because it deals with the League of Assassins and her mother Lady Shiva.
