DC Comics unveils 10 new series in re-launch
PHILADELPHIA (KABC) -- DC Comics' superheroes are getting new series in September as part of a massive 2011 re-launch.
The company is planning 52 separate new series as it retools its major characters, including Wonder Woman, Firestorm, Captain Atom and Aquaman.
The first batch of series includes "Green Arrow," written by JT Krul and drawn by Dan Jurgens; "Justice League International," which Jurgens will write and Aaron Lopresti will draw; "Mister Terrific," from writer Eric Wallace and artist Roger Robinson; "The Fury of Firestorm" by Ethan Van Sciver and Gail Simone with artist Yildiray Cinar; and "Captain Atom," by Krul and artist Freddie Williams II.
DC Comic's chief creative officer Geoff Johns is teaming up with artist Ivan Reis to write the new "Aquaman." Both worked on titles about Green Lantern and the epic story arc "Brightest Day."
Brian Azzarello will write the new "Wonder Woman" with art by Cliff Chiang, and Tony Daniel will handle writing chores for "The Savage Hawkman" with art by Philip Tan.
Francis Manapul will share scripting and illustration duties with Brian Buccellato on the relaunch of "The Flash," a character Manapul is familiar with having drawn the speedster's recent 12-issue series. The new series marks Manapul's debut as a writer.
