DC Teases New Projects including Deathstroke Inc., DC Middle Ages, “DC Vampires”, The Legend of Batman, and more at ComicsPRO
With COVID still very much an issue, conventions and gatherings continue to be virtual like this year’s ComicsPRO. DC presented to the organization and retailers teasing upcoming projects and DC’s expanded variant cover program. The variant program enables more retailers to participate in custom retailer variant covers for their customers.
DC Vice President of Sales and Revenue Nancy Spears presented and teased upcoming projects including:
- Deathstroke Inc.
- Harley Quinn Animated Series sequel
- A Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary title
- “DC Vampires” (working title)
- Robin and Batman
- Joker: A Puzzle Box
- The Legend of Batman
- Crush and Lobo
- Nubia and the Amazons
- DC Middle Ages
Plans might change between now and whenever these may or may not happen so titles may change. We’ll absolutely be waiting to hear more. DC will also be participating in Free Comic Book Day on May 1, 2021, but details on specific titles will be revealed at a later date.
Spears comments were part of a larger virtual presentation to retailers and included DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee, new SVP and General Manager Daniel Cherry III, and Editor-In-Chief Marie Javins. Lee reaffirmed DC’s commitment to publishing comic books and the direct market. Lee also provided updates on the more than $1.1 million dollars raised for the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC) fund to help struggling comic book stores, while Javins commented on the positive reception received by new characters such as Punchline, Clownhunter, Liar Liar, and Ghost-Maker and spoke to DC’s ongoing commitment to a more additive universe of characters.
