The DC Daily Planet: The Day DC Done Right

4

Let’s be real: there is no DC news today but THE DC NEWS: that, though a good chunk of the titles will stay in place and continuity, the n52 is coming to an end in June, with the launch of 24 new titles and a slew of new creative teams. Among the titles announced?

STARFIRE, with the incredible team of Palmiotti, Conner, and Emanuela Lupacchino. Not only does she get a book, she gets a whole new look!

Starfire #1 Amanda Conner Jimmy Palmiotti DC Comics June 2015BLACK CANARY, written by Batgirl and Gotham Academy‘s Brendan Fletcher and drawn by the amazing Annie Wu:

Black Canary #1 Annie Wu Irene Koh Brendan Fletcher DC Comics June 2015We’ll also get series for Cyborg and Midniter! Female-led titles, POC-led titles, a gay lead…it seems DC has not only listened to and learned from criticism, and they’re actively choosing to broaden their horizons. More than that, they’re also hiring a wider range of creators, increasing representation both in the real and fictional universe.

Good for them. There are a lot of days when it’s tough to be a DC fan, but not today! Turns out Gail Simone was right — like that’s a surprise.

What part of this announcement are you most pumped for, crusaders? Tell me, tell me! Either here, or on Twitter!

  1. I… actually CARE about these DC announcements? What’s happening? Help me, Laura, I’m confused.

    • Right?? I don’t usually care about the big two, but this is exciting, and I am loving Wu’s drawing of Black Canary!
