DC Comics announced the return of the Young Animal imprint with three new titles.
The imprint will return in July from The Umbrella Academy scribe and My Chemical Romance front man Gerard Way.
The three new titles will be Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds, Collapser, and Far Sector.
“We are thrilled to revitalize DOOM PATROL, and to present both COLLAPSER and FAR SECTOR, two books that push the medium of comics and their respective genres through uncharted territory,” says Gerard Way.
“Readers can expect everything from high doses of cosmic weirdness and positivity, to deep examinations of anxiety and emotions while wielding immense power, to sci-fi explorations of authority and control and what it means to be a guardian while a world hangs in delicate balance. More fantastic comics outside the norm, as only DC’s Young Animal can do.”
Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds
Way will team up with a number of different interior artists for Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds. They include James Harvey, Doc Shaner, Nick Pitarra, Blecky Cloonan, and more. Covers for the series will be provided by Nick Derington.
Here’s the official description:
“Gerard Way and the World’s Strangest Super Heroes return in an all-new series that takes them beyond the borders of time and space! The Doom Patrol will go on an epic road trip around the solar system, facing off against the unusual and bizarre including the fanatical fitness fiends of planet Orbius and the Marathon Eternal. Big changes are coming for these unusual heroes, including Robotman coming to terms with his new life as a human.”
Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds will debut on July 3, 2019.
Collapser will see Mikey Way and Shaun Simon team up with artist Ilias Kyriazis.
Here’s the official description for the series:
“Liam James is a wannabe DJ whose life goals are almost completely dashed by his crippling anxiety—until a package arrives in the mail containing a black hole that gives him amazing powers and draws him into a cosmic conflict far beyond anything he’d ever imagined. But Liam will discover that when it comes to life, love, mental health and superhero responsibilities, there’s no such thing as a quick fix, and that power comes with a cost.”
Collapser will debut on July 17, 2019.
Far Sector will be a brand new Green Lantern story from writer N.K. Jemisin and artist Jamal Campbell. This will be Jemisin’s comic book debut. She’s the author behind the [easyazon_link identifier=”031652719X” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Broken Earth[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier=”0316334006″ locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Inheritance[/easyazon_link] trilogies.
Here’s the official description:
“Newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people, for the past six months. The City has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.
But that’s all about to change.
This new series introduces a dizzying game of politics and philosophies as Jo discovers a brewing revolution in the City, aided and abetted by some of its most powerful citizens.”
Far Sector is expected to debut sometime later this year.
