DC’s Young Animal Gets a Remix in 2018 with new Titles and New Directions

Following the events of the DC/Young Animal crossover event “Milk Wars” this winter, the main titles of the DC’s Young Animal line will get a mix-up of their own, with new series titles and story directions. The pop-up imprint, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, continues to set the bar for innovation in comics, using the five-part event beginning January 31 to send each title back to #1, with strange and crazy new stories.

Beginning March 7, Shade has shed her alien identity, stepping out of her original Earth body into a new one. Shade, The Changing Woman begins as Loma, now free of the burdens of her past life, sets out to see more of her new home. But how will she cope when the madness she was forced to confront in the Milk Wars is now a mass of memory and confusion? To make things even more challenging, she’ll come face to face with the original Changing Man. Writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Marley Zarcone will continue to helm Loma’s adventures.

Then on March 21, after a year of multiverse-hopping, Cave Carson returns to a normal life of digging and cave-diving, but it just isn’t the same for the explorer. Time fast-forwards as Cave and his daughter Chloe are sucked into an all-new adventure—literally—when they go spelunking in a black hole! Cave Carson Has an Interstellar Eye continues with writer Jon Rivera and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

Then on March 28, follow Violet Paige as she finds herself in a Gotham City unlike anything she’s known before. Mother Panic: Gotham A.D. begins ten years into the future, in a world without a Batman, with Gotham City now in the hands of a Collective. In a high-tech town with zero tolerance toward caped crusaders, what’s a woman who has vowed vengeance to do? The series is written by Jody Houser with art by Tommy Lee Edwards and Ibrahim Moustafa.

Launching from the backup story in “Milk Wars” is Eternity Girla new miniseries from GLAAD Award-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio and Eisner Award-winning artist Sonny Liew. The series follows the tragedy of Caroline Sharp, a former superhero and super-spy whose cursed powers have left her hideously deformed and unable to die! Her only solution? Destroy the universe. This new series begins March 7.

The “Milk Wars” event kicks off in JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1 on January 31. The epically weird crossover adventure featuring characters from the JLA and DC’s Young Animal will continue throughout February.

Check Out Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye’s Spotify Playlist

DC Comics has tipped us off as to the official Spotify playlist for Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye Vol. 1: Going Underground, curated by Jon Rivera and Michael Avon Oeming! The new playlist coincides with the release of the debut collected edition for the new series from DC’s Young Animal, curated by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. Rivera and Oeming’s playlist is an eclectic mix of classic rock, electronic jams and punk that’s almost as trippy as the book itself.

The playlist matches the books many moods, including Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd for Wild Dog, Creedence Clearwater and Moonage Daydream—it’s all here.

Cave Carson is an absurdist action-adventure story unlike any other!

Cave Carson has done it all: survived countless adventures below the Earth’s surface, met the love of his life, and gotten a cybernetic eye…somehow. Now, newly widowed, Cave tries to piece his life back together when a knock on the door of his secret underground lab pulls him back into a past that he and Eileen thought they had left buried deep within the Earth.

In these tales from issues #1-6, Cave must determine if his recent hallucinations are the work of his mind or his mysterious cybernetic eye. (Spoiler: It’s the eye.)
