Dan DiDio teased another project during the Geoff Johns panel – the Killing Zone banner.
According to DiDio, this new imprint, started by Johns, will be “a bunch of different books that form one big tapestry. It’s a bunch of different stories that take place from the 1940s to the 2040s so over a century. It features a bunch of characters who haven’t been at the forefront of the DC Universe for decades and some new ones too.”
Killing Zone will be releasing “early-ish” next year, “around May” Johns said. The characters will be totally new to Johns, as he has never written them before. “I said I want the worst characters that no one pitched,” Johns laughed, “I can’t give specifics but it’s a very important, very big story, over a century — a year long book effort with multiple stories that all ties into one project.”
Johns then elaborated that Killing Zone will also have a TV and film component from his company Mad Ghost, presumably to be part of the DC Universe digital streaming service.
