It’s the 1% plus the 99%! Today, DC Comics announced two new series that join their “Edge” family of titles. The two new comics are The Movement and The Green Team. Each tackles themes
The Movement hits shelves May 1 and comes from the creative team of writer Gail Simone and artist Freddie Williams II. Simone has said the story is an idea she’s had for some time. The comic is about power, who owns it, who uses it, and who suffers from its abuse.
As we increasingly move to an age where information is currency, you get these situations where a single viral video can cost a previously unassailable corporation billions, or can upset the power balance of entire governments. And because the sources of that information are so dispersed and nameless, it’s nearly impossible to shut it all down.
The Green Team comes to shelves May 22 from the Eisner Award-winning creative team Art Baltazar and Franco teaming up with artist Ig Guara.
The real question is: Can money buy you anything in the DC universe? Would it make you powerful? Can it make you a hero? Can money make you…Super?
Franco has said about the project:
If you had unlimited wealth, could you use that to make the lives of people better? Would you help your fellow man? Would you buy powers? You need to read this and find out.
Bryan Young at Big Shiny Robot has interviews with Gail Simone and Art Baltazar and Franco.
The Occupy Movement has become a popular topic in comics leading to the formation of Occupy Comics.
