DC Unveils Covers For Young Animal’s November Releases [Exclusive]
DC's upcoming "pop-up" boutique Young Animal is one of the most anticipated projects of the year, and its debut is right around the corner. Curated by The Umbrella Academy's Gerard Way, it seeks to capture the spark of classic Vertigo while forging a bold new path of its own in the industry.
The four Young Animal titles all stand out as must-read titles of 2016, and each one brings something new to the table, whether it's reinvigorating classic properties like Doom Patrol or reinventing them from the ground up like Shade The Changing Girl. Gerard Way is known for taking risks and not resting on his laurels, so with him at the helm of Young Animal, we're in for four very unique comics later this year.
Check out the covers and solicit information below:

Right?
