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.

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?

The Occupy Movement has become a popular topic in comics leading to the formation of Occupy Comics.
