Gerard Way Launches Young Animal, A New Mature Readers Imprint At DC Comics

Young-Animal-Featured

This summer, DC Comics aren’t just relaunching their entire line, they’re starting a whole new imprint headed up by The Umbrella Academy’s Gerard Way. The imprint, Young Animal, will be overseen by Way who will also write or co-write several of the titles which will take place in DC Universe continuity, but with a mature readers edge.

Described as “comics for dangerous humans”, DC referred to Young Animal in their announcement as a “pop-up imprint” and Way cited the influence of experimental comics from the eighties and nineties as guides for how to take classic characters and concepts to new places.

flex-again

Arguably the most crucial Grant Morrison work presently out-of-print, Flex Mentallo will finally be made available in a deluxe hardcover volume this Fall courtesy of original publisher Vertigo.
