“My Granny Was a Hero”
A little girl with afro puffs, a potbelly and a gap-toothed smile dreams of being a hero. She reads adventure books voraciously; she practices sword strokes and judo kicks in her bedroom in case she ever has to fight a dragon; she devours superhero movies and cartoons with big eyes and popcorn. And every night, she looks out of her window and wishes upon the moon with all her heart to be called upon to help someone in a big way…when she discovers the story of her great-grandmother Cocu, and how Cocu’s superpower led to a heroic struggle for freedom.

More Represent! from DC Begins in February

DC has announced more stories on the way for its Represent! digital series, adding another five digital “chapters,” releasing weekly beginning February 1, 2021. The chapters will be available on participating digital platforms, including Comixology, Apple, Amazon Kindle, Google Books, and others.

This past September, DC took an evolutionary leap forward in graphic storytelling with this digital-first series featuring stories from underrepresented voices, spotlighting personal stories outside the regular comic book medium. The debut story, “It’s A Bird,” was written by Christian Cooper with art by Alitha E. Martinez and Mark Morales; the story was inspired by Cooper’s viral encounter with a Central Park dog owner while bird-watching.

The next chapter, “Heritage,” is written by Jesse Holland with art by Doug Braithwaite. Holland is a former Associated Press journalist, host of C-Span’s “Washington Week,” editor of the upcoming Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda prose anthology, and the author of the Black Panther: Who Is the Black Panther? prose novel, which was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 2019. Braithwaite is a fan-favorite DC penciler, inker, and cover artist whose notable works include the recently released Generations: Shattered, Future State: The Next Batman, Justice, and others.

“Heritage” is based on Holland’s Mississippi farm, which has been in his family since their first ancestor was freed from slavery—tended by his grandfather and his father before him. But as Jesse grows into a man, he’s unsure if a patch of land in the Piney Woods and a life of tilling soil is his true destiny. But destiny can mean so much more than dirt and a tractor…

Future stories include:

Book Three: “Food for Thought,” written by Regine Sawyer, art by Eric Battle

Sawyer, a comic book writer and founder of Women in Comics Collective International, and artist Battle have both contributed to DC individually and have united to tell the story of Lanice, whose passion for cooking and desire for a career in the culinary arts is challenged by the source of her inspiration—her father—who is concerned about his only daughter working in a kitchen, like so many Black Americans before her.

Book Four: “Believe You,” written by Nadira Jamerson, art by Brittney Williams

Howard University alumni Jamerson makes her comic book debut with Williams, who recently provided art for DC’s middle grade graphic novel Lois Lane and the Friendship Challenge. A young mother, Mai, has been struggling with her health ever  since the birth of her daughter, Dira. She’s exhausted, gaining weight and experiencing shooting pain through her legs, and she wakes up with numbness spreading across her entire body. She  is in constant agony. But the doctors don’t think anything is wrong with her—she’s stressed, she’s a hypochondriac, it’s just fatigue—and despite everything Mai does to make herself better, she still feels alone. Until she finally finds a way to advocate for her health and finds an ally who does more than prescribe…they listen.

Book Five: “My Granny Was A Hero,” written by Tara Roberts, art by Yancey Labat

Roberts, a National Geographic Storytelling Fellow, MIT Open Documentary Lab Fellow and avid scuba diving enthusiast, teams up with DC Super Hero Girls artist Labat in a story of a little girl realizing her dreams of heroism.

A little girl with Afro puffs, a potbelly, and a gap-toothed smile dreams of being a hero. She reads adventure books voraciously; she practices sword strokes and judo kicks in her bedroom in case she ever has to fight a dragon; she devours superhero movies, cartoons, and popcorn with big eyes. And every night, she looks out of her window and wishes upon the moon with all her heart to be called upon to help someone in a big way…when she discovers the story of her great-grandmother Cocu, and how Cocu’s superpower led to a heroic struggle for freedom. 

Book Six: “The Lesson,” written and drawn by Dominike “DOMO” Stanton

Stanton has been drawing comics for the last ten years; most recently, he provided art for House of Whispers, part of Neil Gaiman’s celebrated The Sandman Universe line of titles.

Stanton’s protagonist Dom got his butt kicked in school a lot…like…a lot a lot…for no reason. He got caught up in fights that had nothing to do with him or would get jumped simply walking the halls of his school or waiting for the bus home. Fed up and angry, he decides to join a local gym and learn how to box. But what starts out as a mission to fight back turns into something greater, and Dom is given the opportunity to stand up for himself in more ways than one.

Each new 10-page digital chapter will be available on Mondays for $0.99 each.

DC Launches a New DC Super Hero Girls Digital First Series

In the newest installment of the critically acclaimed DC Super Hero Girls comics series, the teenage superheroes face their smartest competition yet—the Metropolis High Science Fair!

Set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that airs Sundays on Cartoon Network, DC Super Hero Girls: Weird Science is an original story that follows Zatanna and the rest of the teen superheroes as they tap into their inner scientists for the upcoming school competition.

In Weird Science all the DC Super Hero Girls are excited to compete in Metropolis High’s science fair—everyone except Zee Zatara, a.k.a. Zatanna. Magic is Zee’s life, and science seems so dull in comparison. When she tries to help her friends with their projects, things keep going wrong. Is her magic causing the science to go haywire? Who will be named the ultimate “science” hero?

Penned by fan-favorite writer Amanda Deibert, the 14-chapter series features a cast of rotating artists including Yancey Labat, Agnes Garbowska, and Erich Owen, among others. The digital series will debut new chapters every week, and the first chapter is available now everywhere digital comics are sold.

DC Announces DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High Out this October

DC announced today that the publisher will continue its critically acclaimed DC Super Hero Girls graphic novel series with new stories told by animation and comics writer Amy Wolfram. Wolfram’s graphic novels will tell original stories starring Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and many more popular DC characters set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that will air Sundays at 4 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network beginning March 17, 2019.

Wolfram is best known for her work on such fan-favorite animated shows as Teen Titans Go!, and most recently contributed several episodes to the DCSHG animated shorts.

Joining Wolfram for the first installment is longtime DCSHG artist Yancey Labat.

A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in the upcoming original graphic novel DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High! When Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, they are told to find an after-school club for a whole week or else be suspended. But finding a club is not as easy as it looks, and when the girls keep finding themselves kicked out of the clubs, they must think outside of the box and go out of their comfort zones to avoid suspension. Just when they thought balancing school with secret identities and super-heroing had enough challenges.

The DCSHG graphic novels will be published under DC’s new middle grade publishing imprint, DC Zoom. The graphic novel will be in comic shops 10/9/19 and everywhere books are sold on 10/15/19.

DC Entertainment Announces Two New Graphic Novel Imprints Aimed at Young Readers

DC Zoom and DC Ink are the two new graphic novel imprints announced by DC Entertainment this weekend. DC Zoom will feature stories for middle school readers while DC Ink will be focused on young adults.

The new imprints will also team up with young adult writers including Laurie Halse Anderson, Melissa de la Cruz, Michael Northrop, and Ridley Pearsen.

DC Ink will kick off with two graphic novels, one featuring Harley Quinn being written by Mariko Tamaki and art by Steve Pugh. The other will feature Mera and will be written by Danielle Paige with an artist yet to be announced. DC Zoom will debut with DC Super Hero Girls: Search for Atlantis by Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat.

Also announced was Gene Luen Yang‘s book, Superman Smashes the Klan. The title sounds like a throwback to the classic Superman radio show which took on the Klan. Ridley Pearson will write a Super Sons graphic novel featuring Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne. Pearson’s story will tackle climate change and introduce a new character named Candice, who discovers she belongs to an African dynasty.

The announced lineup reflects the female readers of middle grade and Y.A. novels. They’ll be free from complicated continuity.

The focus isn’t superhero stories but character studies. The middle grader focused adventures will be “characters who are figuring out the world around them, including dealing with parents and teachers” while the young adult graphic novels will focus on “questions of personal identity, with budding heroes deciding what paths they will take.”

The softcover Zoom graphic novels will cost $9.99 for 128 pages with the Ink books retailing for $16.99 for 192 pages.
