motherpanic-feat

DC has made some interesting moves since its relocation from New York City to Burbank, California, last year, including the upcoming line-wide relaunch DC Rebirth, and a notably uneven line of Hanna-Barbera-inspired comics. Perhaps the most surprising announcement came at Emerald City Comicon earlier this month, when DC unveiled Young Animal, a new line of superhero comics masterminded by Umbrella Academy writer and musician and My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way.

Described as a "pop-up imprint," Young Animal includes a new Doom Patrol series by Way and Nick Derington; a Shade relaunch, Shade the Changing Girl, by Cecil Castellucci and Marley Zarcone; Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, by Way, Jon Rivera and Michael Avon Oeming, and the Gotham-set Mother Panic, concceived by Way and written by Jody Houser, with art by Tommy Lee Edwards. But that's just the start. ComicsAlliance sat down with Way to find out how Young Animal came to be, what his longterm plans are for the imprint, and how involved he is with all the books across the line.

The original Captain America villain goes up against a supporting character from Alan Moore and JH Williams III's Promethea in Aleister & Adolf, a new graphic novel by Douglas Rushkoff and Michael Avon Oeming. Levity aside, obviously the new book draws not on Aleister Crowley and Adolf Hitler's previous comic book appearances, but on their real life personas, and particularly their shared interest in the occult. The book arrives in stores on November 2nd, 2016.
