Yesterday, at the New York Comic Con, Brian Michael Bendis took the stage during DC’s Meet the Publishers panel to announce the first details of his Wonder Comics curated line of teen-focused, in-continuity comic books that will arrive in early 2019.
The line will be anchored by the return of Impulse (Bart Allen) and Superboy (Conner Kent), teaming up with Robin (Tim Drake) as the nucleus of an all-new YOUNG JUSTICE, which Bendis will write with art by his ACTION COMICS partner in crime, Patrick Gleason. As a tease for his Saturday evening spotlight panel, Bendis also announced the rest of the first wave of titles:
- NAOMI, which Bendis will co-write with David Walker (CYBORG), featuring art by Jamal Campbell (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: VIXEN)
- WONDER TWINS, written by Mark Russell (THE FLINTSTONES, EXIT STAGE LEFT: THE SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES, DC Black Label’s SECOND SON) with art by Stephen Byrne (JUSTICE LEAGUE/POWER RANGERS)
- DIAL H FOR HERO, an updated take on the Silver Age classic series from the team of writer Sam Humphries (HARLEY QUINN, GREEN LANTERNS) and artist Joe Quinones (BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA)
While I’m super interested in the return of Young Justice, and the Wonder Twins series could be great fun, I think I’m most interested in what Sam Humphries and Joe Quinones have in mind for Dial H for Hero.
Which of the new books are you looking forward to?
