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.

Review: Dissonance #1

MINOR SPOILERS BELOW

Dissonance is a new science fiction comic series that weaves a complicated web of backstory and plot. The story is set up with a lot of potential, but ultimately, felt like it could have delivered much more. To sum the story up as simply as possible, there is a parallel world to Earth named Terra Fantasme that houses a futuristic people named The Fantasmen. These beings have shed their skin so to speak, and are spirits that lack conscience, or souls. This is where the story sets up the plot device that these beings need humanity as mortal hosts to give these beings a chance to end their war, and achieve prosperity once again.

After combing the galaxies for years, they find Earth. Here is where the desperate species makes a pact with humanity to combine into something new, and in turn, share their technology and their immense knowledge with Earth. This merging is called Dissonance. While these concepts to me are very interesting, the delivery felt like it could have been much better. At the same time, this story does tell a complicated set up, and has to do it in a few pages, so I can understand why it was done this way.

The story is written by Singgih Nugroho and Ryan Cady. After the initial set up I mentioned above, the rest of the comic follows the assassination of a model at the international fashion show. This piece was confusing, and takes the story into government corruption like we’ve seen many times before. I am still a little lost on why this was done, aside from it being something to start a war or chaos with the humans that are protesting those who want to embrace or achieve dissonance, and those who are protesting against it. The book continues to set up what appears to be our villain or villains, while there is some scheming going on with some of the other characters who have their own agenda. We also meet what appears to be our main character, who in my opinion, was introduced far too late into the comic.

The art by Sami Basri has a nice clean look to it, with the colors by Sakai Yuwono popping and bringing the book alive. The art to me is the best thing this book has going for it besides the concept, and there are some panels that look quite fantastic. It shares a similar look with The Wicked & The Divine, so if you like that style, you will like this too.

I would say that this series could improve in the next issue or two, especially with needing so much set up on a complicated story like this, but as of right now, it left me wanting a little more coherent and perhaps slower sci-fi story. You’re mileage may vary, and you may very well enjoy this comic more than I did, I just was expecting a different kind of book.
