In October, DC Comics will unleash another wave of DC/Hanna-Barbera team-up comics, featuring some of your favorite heroes, and some of your favorite HB cartoon characters.
DEATHSTROKE/YOGI BEAR SPECIAL #1

variant cover by PAOLO PANTALENA
In Yellowstone Park, legends speak of a spirit bear referred to as “the Yogi,” which few if any have actually encountered. Real or not, when a bear seems to have graduated from stealing picnic baskets to kidnapping actual campers, Ranger Smith decides it’s time to stop this menace—so he calls on the services of Slade Wilson—a.k.a. Deathstroke—to get the job done.
GREEN LANTERN/HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SPECIAL #1

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the early 1970s, Green Lantern and Huckleberry Hound join forces to take a stand on the issues of that era. Returning from recent duty in Vietnam, veteran Marine John Stewart—now a member of the Green Lantern Corps—contemplates what, if anything, he should do about the issues tearing his country apart. Meanwhile, Huckleberry’s comments against the Vietnam war have left him a celebrity outcast, and a visit back home to Mississippi puts him face to face with the Civil Rights Movement. What can one man—and one hound—do?
NIGHTWING/MAGILLA GORILLA SPECIAL #1

variant cover by JONBOY MEYERS
When a famous Hollywood talent agent is found brutally murdered, suspicion and evidence seem to point to his most famous client, Oscar winning actor Magilla Gorilla. Dick Grayson, already in Tinseltown to meet with said agent, senses something suspicious. Donning his Nightwing costume and joining forces with the simian suspect, he’s got one night to prove that this monkey doesn’t belong in a cage.
SUPERMAN/TOP CAT SPECIAL #1
written by DAN DiDIO
art and cover by SHANE DAVIS
variant cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO
It’s Superman versus super food with Top Cat caught in the middle. While searching for his missing friend Bennie, TC uncovers a dietary danger that threatens the healthier portions of mankind, and it’s up to the Man of Steel to stop the probiotic menace of Kalien! In the salad bar, no one can hear you scream.
My first takeaway from all of this is, the first event must have gone so well that this will be a regualr event from DC Comics, which I’m totally fine with. The second takeaway I have is wondering if the Superman/Top Cat Special will feature the same Top Cat we saw in the Batman/Top Cat Special.
