DC Comics Announces ‘Justice League Dark,’ ‘Swamp Thing,’ ‘Animal Man,’ and More
Another day, another set of huge announcements from DC Comics. Not only will September bring Justice League Dark, a new team of supernatural heroes, but some familiar faces from both DC Comics and imprints like Vertigo and Wildstorm will return in all-new books, including Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Resurrection Man, The Demon, Frankenstein of Seven Soldiers, Lord Andrew Bennett of I… Vampire and Voodoo from WildC.A.T.S.
Check out all the creative teams and preview art below, and vote on which new series interests you the most.Swamp Thing will be written by American Vampire scribe Scott Snyder with art by Yanick Paquette (Batman Incorporated):
For years, one man served against his will as the avatar of nature. And while he may have been freed of the monster, he’s about to learn the monster will never truly let go of him.
Justice League Dark by writer Peter Milligan and artist Mikel Janin will feature the “World’s Greatest Supernatural Heroes,” including John Constantine, Deadman, Shade the Changing Man and Madame Xanadu. (Could that be Zatanna we see in the cover art wearing fishnet arm bands?)
Animal Man will be written by Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Superboy) with art by Travel Foreman and Dan Green:
Buddy Baker has gone from “super” man to family man – but is he strong enough to hold his family together when Maxine, his young daughter, starts to manifest her own dangerous powers?
Set in the Middle Ages, the Demon leads an unlikely team to defend civilization and preserve the last vestiges of Camelot against the tide of history.
Voodoo, based on the character from Wildstorm’s WildC.A.T.S. will be written by Ron Marz with art by Sami Basri:
Priscilla Kitaen has just found out she’s a monster. A half-alien hybrid, the woman known as Voodoo must confront the secrets of her past to make sense of the nightmare her life has suddenly become.
Based on a long-running story in DC’s House of Mystery series, I… Vampire will be written by Josh Fialkov with art by Andrea Sorrentino:
Vampires threaten to bring ruin to the DC Universe in I, VAMPIRE #1…Tortured by his centuries-old love for the Queen of the Damnned, Andrew Bennett must save humanity from the violent uprising of his fellow vampires, even if it means exterminating his own kind.
Featuring the Frankenstein of Grant Morrison’s Seven Soldiers, Frankenstein, Agent of Shade will be written by Jeff Lemire, with art by Alberto Ponticelli:
Frankenstein and his network of strange beings work for an even stranger government organization: The Super Human Advanced Defense Executive. It’s the breakout hero of Seven Soldiers as you’ve never seen him before in FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF SHADE #1.
Finally, Resurrection Man, a popular ’90s hero who recently appeared in Brightest Day, will get his own series by Andy Lanning and Dan Abnett, two of the character’s original creators. DC says simply that “RESURRECTION MAN #1 is the story of a hero who wakes up with new powers each time he’s killed.”
