At a panel on Friday, we got a closer look at some of the titles, including Amanda Conner’s designs for The Flintstones, and a detailed look into how bizarre Wacky Raceland is going to be.

Harley Gets A ‘Cinematic’ Makeover In ‘Harley Quinn’ #26

Harley-Quinn-Cover

There have been rumblings that DC Comics would be subtly nudging the look of its comic books to more closely match the films and TV shows they have in production, and in this week’s Harley Quinn #26, we may have got our first look at what that means.

The latest issue, by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, John Timms, Chad Hardin, Hi-Fi and Tom Napolitano, sees Harley and her friends returning to Coney Island after their most recent adventure in Gotham, and what better way to symbolize a new start than with a new movie-friendly makeover?

Burning Bright: Jimmy Palmiotti And Amanda Conner On The End Of ‘Starfire’ [Exclusive]

starfirecover-feat

When it debuted in June of last year, Starfire brought alien princess Koriand'r to the Florida Keys with a bright new attitude and a great new costume. Written by the Harley Quinn team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the book includes beautiful lineart from Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy, with Elsa Charretier taking over lineart this week in Starfire #9, plus vibrant color work from Hi-Fi. All this comes together to tell the tale of a sunny-dispositioned superheroine making a life for herself in the strange land of Florida.

But in the last month or so, rumors of changes coming to the DC line has readers questioning what would happen to Starfire. We got together with Conner and Palmiotti to discuss female friendship, Kori's views on love and sexuality, and the fate of the book in the coming months.

Elsa Charretier Joins Conner and Palmiotti to Take Kori Underground in ‘Starfire’ #9 [Exclusive Preview]

STARF_feat

This current Starfire series continues to be a ton of fun, especially considering she was perhaps the character who suffered the most damage in the 2011 New 52 reboot. Pulling her back from that disaster and rehabilitating her into someone who longtime fans can actually stand to read a comic about has been a major project, and may be a factor in her getting a solo comic in the first place.

With issue #9, that comic is getting a new artist. The Infinite Loop's Elsa Charretier joins series writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti for four issues, bringing a simple, fun art style that's noticeably reminiscent of Bruce Timm, the visual architect of the classic DC Animated Universe. And she can actually make a giant caterpillar look cute, which is really quite an achievement.

DC Announces A Slate Of New Hanna-Barbera Titles, Including ‘Scooby-Doo Apocalypse’ And Parker And Shaner’s ‘Space Ghost’

Scooby-Doo Apocalypse

Listen, I gotta tell you about this dream I had last night. It was so weird 00- DC comics had launched a line of comics based on Hanna-Barbera cartoons, but they were doing these completely bonkers takes on all of them. Like, Scooby-Doo was set in the apocalypse and Scooby had a techno-monocle that allowed him to communicate through emojis, and Wacky Races was mashed up with Mad Max: Fury Road, and they even got one of the designers from the movie for it, and there was a big crossover with Space Ghost and Jonny Quest. And the weirdest thing of all was that the Flintstones were just the Flintstones, but drawn by Amanda Conner. Bizarre, right?

Wait a second... I'm just catching up on the news, and --- holy cats. It wasn't a dream. DC Comics is actually doing a Hanna-Barbera line with post-apocalyptic Wacky Races and emoji-monocle Scooby-Doo. This is actually happening.

Gallery: Best Wonder Woman Art Ever

ww-feat

Since her 1941 debut, Wonder Woman has been one of the cornerstones of DC Comics, and of superhero comics in general.

In her 74-year-history, scores of artists have put their spin on the character, from subtle changes to her classic red, white, blue and gold costume to the "new" Wonder Woman of the late 1960s to some far more maligned interpretations that featured jackets and long pants. We've compiled a gallery of some of the most iconic Wonder Woman artists of the past seven decades, along with some positively stunning modern designs.
