DC Reveals More Hanna-Barbera/DC Comics Mash-Ups! Deathstroke & Yogi Bear, Green Lantern & Huckleberry Hound and More!

This October, the mash-ups get weirder and wilder when DC unleashes more crazy combinations of the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes with some of Hanna-Barbera’s best-known classic cartoon characters. Each book goes on sale Wednesday, October 31 (with both a standard and variant cover), is rated T (for Teen) and carries a retail price of $4.99. These 48-page one-shots will also feature an installment of a spotlight tale featuring Hanna-Barbera’s leading super spy, Secret Squirrel, written by J.M. DeMatteis with art by Tom Mandrake.

The title lineup includes:

DEATHSTROKE/YOGI BEAR SPECIAL #1

Written by FRANK TIERI
Art by MARK TEXEIRA
cover by TYLER KIRKHAM
variant cover by PAOLO PANTALENA

In Yellowstone Park, legends speak of a spirit bear referred to as “the Yogi,” which few if any have actually encountered. Real or not, when a bear seems to have graduated from stealing picnic baskets to kidnapping actual campers, Ranger Smith decides it’s time to stop this menace—so he calls on the services of Slade Wilson—a.k.a. Deathstroke—to get the job done.

GREEN LANTERN/HUCKLEBERRY HOUND SPECIAL #1

written by MARK RUSSELL
art by RICK LEONARDI
cover by SAMI BASRI
variant cover by YASMINE PUTRI

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the early 1970s, Green Lantern and Huckleberry Hound join forces to take a stand on the issues of that era. Returning from recent duty in Vietnam, veteran Marine John Stewart—now a member of the Green Lantern Corps—contemplates what, if anything, he should do about the issues tearing his country apart. Meanwhile, Huckleberry’s comments against the Vietnam war have left him a celebrity outcast, and a visit back home to Mississippi puts him face to face with the Civil Rights Movement. What can one man—and one hound—do?

NIGHTWING/MAGILLA GORILLA SPECIAL #1

written by HEATH CORSON
art by TOM GRUMMETT
cover by MARCUS TO
variant cover by JONBOY MEYERS

When a famous Hollywood talent agent is found brutally murdered, suspicion and evidence seem to point to his most famous client, Oscar winning actor Magilla Gorilla. Dick Grayson, already in Tinseltown to meet with said agent, senses something suspicious. Donning his Nightwing costume and joining forces with the simian suspect, he’s got one night to prove that this monkey doesn’t belong in a cage.

SUPERMAN/TOP CAT SPECIAL #1

written by DAN DIDIO
art and cover by SHANE DAVIS
variant cover by EMANUELA LUPACCHINO

It’s Superman versus super food with Top Cat caught in the middle. While searching for his missing friend Bennie, TC uncovers a dietary danger that threatens the healthier portions of mankind, and it’s up to the Man of Steel to stop the probiotic menace of Kalien! In the salad bar, no one can hear you scream.
