DC Reveals Art And New Details For ‘Kamandi Challenge’ Tribute To Kirby [NYCC 2016]

Kamandi art by Bruce Timm

A while back DC announced plans to revive Jack Kirby's Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth in January in a form that, to say the least, is a little unique. It's called The Kamandi Challenge, and the idea --- loosely inspired by 1985's DC Challenge and its game of storytelling hot potato --- is that the twelve-issue series will feature a new creative team, randomly paired together from a list of twelve writers and twelve artists for each issue, each picking up the story where the previous team leaves off.

It's an interesting way to mark the 100th anniversary of Kirby's birth in 2017. In advance of New York Comic-Con, DC has revealed a first look at some of the artwork from the series, plus new details of how the creative teams will approach the story.

Aquaman Punches Aquaterorrists In ‘Aquaman: Rebirth’ #1 [Exclusive]

Aquaman: Rebirth #1

The last time the DC Universe was rebooted, all the way back in 2011, Aquaman kicked things off by insisting that he does not talk to fish. Now, with Rebirth upon us and a new clean slate offered up so that we can once again redefine the King of the Seven Seas, it raises the question of just what Aquaman's going to tell us he doesn't do this time. When Aquamman: Rebirth #1 hits shelves next week from Dan Abnett and Oscar Jimenez, is he going to tell us that he doesn't wear an orange shirt, or that he didn't have a pirate hook for a hand for a little bit back in the '90s? Or is he, perhaps, going to tell us that he prefers swimming pools to the ocean?

Okay, okay, I kid. It actually turns out that Aquaman's going to be kicking off his new era by punching out a bunch of Aquaterrorists who ride around on giant sea-serpents with alligator mouths, so already, things are looking up. Check out a preview!
