DC Comics is ushering a new era of comic books with something for everyone.
With the success of TV shows like Arrow and The Flash, and an increasing interest in comics with new and diverse demographics, DC Comics will bring a new slate of modern superheroes.
“More than ever before, DC Comics fans are being exposed to our rich portfolio of characters through multiple sources, including an unprecedented number of highly successful TV shows, videogames and upcoming major motion pictures,” said DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee. “We are looking to extend that experience within publishing to ensure there is a comic book for everyone.
DC Comics’ move to modernize its characters and stories is the latest in a trend, with comic book readers and viewers alike demanding more relevant and relatable story lines.
Earlier this year, an 11-year-old girl wrote a letter to DC Comics. The girl expressed her disappointment over the lack of female representation in comic books, explaining that girls read comic books too. DC Comics responded via twitter, saying it would work toward creating more content for girls.
With a Black Canary stand-alone series, as well as a Vixen animated series, the Wonder Woman movie, and a Supergirl TV series in the works, DC Comics is well on its way to creating more diverse content for readers and views of all kinds.
