At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, DC Enterainment announced the next wave of titles, authors and artists for the publisher’s upcoming young reader imprints, DC Ink and DC Zoom.

Marieke Nijkamp, the #1 New York Times best-selling YA author of This Is Where It Ends, will bring her storytelling to DC’s young adult line of graphic novels—DC Ink—with an original tale about a teenage Oracle, the superhero alter-ego that Barbara Gordon assumes after an encounter with The Joker confines her to a wheelchair. Oracle: Rising will be joined by another tale about a teenage Batgirl, Cassandra Cain, in Shadow of the Batgirl, written by acclaimed author Sarah Kuhn, known for her popular Heroine Complex novels.

Additional DC Ink titles announced today include: Truth or Consequences: A Jack Hyde Story, the working title of an Aqualad story written by award-winning author Alex Sanchez; Dick Grayson: Lost Carnival, written by critically acclaimed comics writer Michael Moreci; and Leigh Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer, which will be adapted from its prose form into a graphic novel by writer Louise Simonson.

DC Zoom, DC’s middle grade graphic novel line, will introduce its first story starring Wonder Woman in Diana, Princess of the Amazons, written by Shannon and Dean Hale. Past collaborations from the husband-and-wife duo include the Eisner-nominated Rapunzel’s Revenge graphic novel and Marvel’s bestselling The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl prose novel series. Shannon Hale is also the Newbery Honor-winning author of the Princess Academy series and the New York Times best-selling Real Friends.

New artists and on-sale dates for previously announced titles were also revealed. Gurihiru Studios will provide illustrations for Gene Luen Yang’s Superman Smashes the Klan, Andie Tong will draw Minh Lê’s Green Lantern: Legacy graphic novel, Gustavo Duarte will join author Michael Northrop on Dear Justice League and Thomas Pitilli has been tapped to illustrate Melissa de la Cruz’s Gotham High graphic novel. DC also announced Chris Wildgoose as the artist for Stuart Moore’s adaptation of Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwalker and revealed the graphic novel’s official cover.

Two iconic comic book characters meet up for the FIRST TIME in this historic crossover mini-series! A battle in Gotham City extends its reach into Riverdale—with Mr. Lodge becoming enemy #1 of the dynamic duo! Now it’s up to Veronica to recruit some help and place a call… to the Batcave!

Review: Archie Meets Batman ’66 #1

Writers Jeff Parker and Michael Moreci bring together two new properties in the popular “Batman ’66” line of comics that have reinvigorated the property and brought a lot of fun with it. While the actual formal meeting of the two properties doesn’t take place in this issue it reads like a pretty basic Batman stopping the bad guys as it sets up while Riverdale gets roped in to things.

There’s a lot of characters thrown in to the issue and it feels right at home with everything that has been set up to this point. The tone, the look, it all comes together in a familiar package but with the new addition of Archie and his friends.

A lot of that has to do with the art from Dan Parent, colors by Kelly Fitzpatrick, and ink by J. Bone. Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and the rogues all look as expected, great that is, and the Archie kids look right at home. It’s two properties that blend together very well. There is an issue with one panel when Veronica switches outfits from the previous one but it could be time passing to explain that. Everything though works great and even the crazier aspects of Batman ’66 still feel right at home and blend with the Riverdale kids. It’s interesting in how visually the two work together.

While we don’t get to see Batman with Archie in this issue, it’s still a good start and one that gives us a Batman adventure you can read in one issue. It’s a good start and brings the two properties together in a smooth way. Hopefully we’ll get more of the two property’s characters actually together in the second issue but kicking things off, this is a good way to go about it.
