We’ve already shared the upcoming release dates for two new DC Zoom titles, but today, DC Comics has announced even more DC Ink and DC Zoom titles, along with some never before seen previews of these titles.
As we have previously reported, The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid and DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High will arrive in October 2019.
THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID by acclaimed writer and illustrator Kirk Scroggs tells a lighthearted coming-of-age tale about a half-human/half-plant boy named Russell Weinwright. The book is completely written and drawn in first-person journal entries and features a fun, innovative lined notebook-style format.
DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH marks the first DC Super Hero Girls (DCSHG) graphic novel by new series writer Amy Wolfram. Wolfram is joined by DCSHG veteran artist Yancey Labat for this original story set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that will air Sundays at 4 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network beginning March 17, 2019.
