Since its 2020 debut, the five-issue limited series The Other History of the DC Universe has received critical and fan acclaim for its examination of the DC Universe through the eyes of superheroes outside the prevailing culture, and against the backdrop of real-world events.
The first issue of this unique series focused on Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. Black Lightning as he finds his path to heroism as Olympic gold medalist, teacher, neighborhood activist and finally, super hero. It’s only fitting that The Other History of the DC Universe concludes with a spotlight of his super-powered offspring, Thunder.
Being a superhero runs in Anissa Pierce’s family. It’s been a part of her life in one way or another since her father, Jefferson Pierce, first started to fight crime as Black Lightning. Despite what her parents tell her, despite what the world tells her, Anissa knows that she has the same calling as her father. But as Anissa takes on the mantle of Thunder, she must grapple with a very different world than the one that her father first patrolled.
The Other History of the DC Universe Book Five is out July 27 from writer John Ridley, art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi, cover by Camuncoli and Marco Mastrazzo, and variant cover by Jamal Campbell.
This November, fans who have been awaiting award-winning screenwriter John Ridley’sThe Other History of the DC Universehaven’t much longer to wait, as DC announced today that the five-issue miniseries will debut on Tuesday, November 24. Joining Ridley on this series are artists Giuseppe “Cammo” Camuncoli, Andrea Cucchi, and colorist José Villarrubia, with covers by Camuncoli (with Marco Mastrazzo) and Jamal Campbell.
Ridley is no stranger to comic book storytelling at DC, having written The Authority: Human on the Inside (with artist Ben Oliver) in 2004 in addition to an issue of the 2005 The Razor’s Edge: Warblade series. Ridley also collaborated with artist Georges Jeanty on the limited series The American Way (2006) and its sequel, The American Way: Those Above and Those Below (2017). On September 29, the Batman: The Joker War Zone anthology will feature a short story by Ridley, with art by Olivier Coipel.
This five-issue seriesreframes iconic moments from DC history, exploring them through the eyes of DC Super Heroes representing traditionally disenfranchised groups. The series centers around the perspectives of Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. Black Lightning; his daughter Anissa, also known as Thunder; Mal Duncan (Herald) and his wife, Karen Beecher (Bumblebee); Renee Montoya (the Question); and Tatsu Yamashiro (Katana).
This series promises to be an experience unlike any other. DC fans may think they know the history of the DC Universe, but its true history is far more complex. The Other History of the DC Universe isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.
The Other History of the DC Universe debuts at open and operating comic book stores and participating digital retailers on Tuesday, November 24. New issues will ship bimonthly, and the series will carry DC’s Black Label content descriptor, with content appropriate for readers ages 17+.
