The recently-wrapped NYCC 2015 was the perfect platform for DC to expand a little on some plans that had been announced at SDCC 2015 way back in July. On the DC Blog, we got a summary of some of the upcoming titles and changes in talent that are coming our way January 2016. Let’s take a look!
Swamp Thing is back with a new series, penned by Len Wein with art by Kelley Jones. DC is describing the series as full of “dark magic” and with “more than just your average monsters” that will be sure to give Swamp Thing plenty of creepy trouble in the future.
Poison Ivy will be getting her own mini-series under the title Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death. Writer Amy Chu in an interview back in July has described the series as “a really new direction” for Dr. Pamela Isley. The mini-series will feature art by Clay Mann and will be six issues long.
Once more going the route of the DC Digital First series, we have a new Wonder Woman limited series debuting in January. If you were as big of a fan of the recently cancelled Sensation Comics as I was, you too should be thrilled by this news! In the nine issue series we will see a young Diana of Themyscira, growing up alongside Queen Hippolyta and the Amazons. The series, titled Wonder Woman! The Legend of Wonder Woman is written and illustrated by Renae De Liz and inked and coloured by Ray Dillon.
Picking up from where Green Lantern: The Lost Army left off, we have Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion coming our way written by Tom Taylor of Injustice: Gods Among Us fame with veteran Green Lantern artist Ethan Van Sciver. Tom Taylor will also be taking over Batman/Superman #28 with artist Robson Rocha in what DC has described as a “three-part epic” that will be “an untold tale from Bruce and Clark’s early crime-fighting careers”.
All these titles are rich with diversity; there should be something for everyone coming up this January! What are you most excited for?
