It's rare to see Dan Parent working outside of Archie Comics, where he's the most prominent writer/artist of the last two decades. However, DC has unveiled variant covers drawn by Parent for their four Hanna-Barbera reboot titles: Scooby Apocalypse #7, The Flintstones #4, Wacky Raceland #5, and Future Quest #6. "I'm so excited to do these four Hanna- Barbera covers," Parent told ComicsAlliance. "As a lifelong fan, and fan of the new series of books, it was a dream come true!"

Q: How would Batman fare in the world of Wacky Races? -- @sprucetonberry A: I'm going to go go ahead and guess that this question was inspired by this week's release of DC's new Wacky Raceland comic, in which the classic road race cartoon was reimagined for the grim darkness of a post-apocalyptic future. With that being the case, I have to admit that the comic was a little disappointing for me. As much as I love that premise and the idea of going super over-the-top with it --- and as much as there were scenes in there that captured exactly what I want out of a story like that --- the whole thing left me a little cold. But like most things in this fallen world of ours, I'm pretty sure it could be improved with the addition of Batman.
