DC RELAUNCH: Supernatural characters get updates (UPDATED)

by

DC Comics has announced not only will the superheroes get a relaunch in September, but so will Swamp Thing and other supernatural characters of the DCU.

UPDATE: This story has been updated from the 9:00 edition that includes cover images, and more supernatural characters, including vampires, and VOODOO by Ron Marz.

SWAMP THING #1
Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: Yannick Paquette


ANIMAL MAN #1
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Travel Foreman and Dan Green

Buddy Baker has gone from “super” man to family man – but is he strong enough to hold his family together when Maxine, his young daughter, starts to manifest her own dangerous powers?


JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #1
Writer: Peter Milligan
Artist: Mikel Janin

This book will feature John Constantine, Deadman, Shade the Changing Man, and Madame Xanadu.  No word if Bill Willingham’s Shadowpact team will be featured in this book or not.  My guess… probably not.

DEMON KNIGHTS #1
Writer: Paul Cornell
Artist: Diogenes Neves and Oclair Albert

From what we’ve heard, this is a series that will be set in medieval times.  That’s the time period, not the all you can eat banquet/ren-fair eatery.

FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF SHADE #1
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Alberto Ponticelli

Frankenstein and his network of strange beings work for an even stranger government organization: The Super Human Advanced Defense Executive. It’s the breakout hero of Seven Soldiers as you’ve never seen him before in FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF SHADE #1

It’s interesting that Lemire (of Sweet Tooth fame) is getting to work on this project.  Word has it that DC went to their top teams and let them pick and choose what titles they wanted to work on.  If Morrison doesn’t want to do this, and Batman, Inc is put on hold, what could Grant be working on? I bet we have the answer by Friday, if not sooner.

RESURRECTION MAN #1
Writers: Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning
Artist: Fernando Dagnino

I, VAMPIRE #1
Writer: Josh Fialkov
Artist: Andrea Sorrentino

Tortured by his centuries-old love for the Queen of the Damnned, Andrew Bennett must save humanity from the violent uprising of his fellow vampires, even if it means exterminating his own kind.

VOODOO #1
Writer: Ron Marz
Artist: Sami Basri

Priscilla Kitaen has just found out she’s a monster. A half-alien hybrid, the woman known as Voodoo must confront the secrets of her past to make sense of the nightmare her life has suddenly become.

Well, it looks like we know why Ron Marz left Witchblade…
