DC Announces New Green Lantern Corps, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman & More For January
DC Comics announces new titles and creative changes for January 2016.
A new Swamp Thing series will debut written by legendary co-creator Len Wein, with art by comics icon Kelley Jones. In this ongoing series, Swamp Thing receives an ominous warning and finds himself under attack from the forces of dark magic. These are more than just your average monsters, however! And if that’s not enough, there’s something much worse looming on the horizon for Alec Holland!
Poison Ivy: Cycke Of Lfe and Death is also announced for January which will be written by Amy Chu with art by Clay Mann. In this six-issue miniseries, Dr. Pamela Isley joins the prestigious plant sciences department at Gotham Botanical Gardens. But when a fellow scientist is murdered and it looks like the work of Poison Ivy, what happens next?
Wonder Woman gets a new Digital First series with Wonder Woman! The Legend Of Wonder Woman, a nine-issue digital series written and illustrated by Renae De Liz, with inker/colorist Ray Dillon. In the beginning there was only chaos. But Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, sees a better future – and eventually her daughter is destined to bring that new world to life. But before her ultimate destiny is revealed, Diana of Themyscira must learn the important lessons of an Amazonian childhood!
Tom Taylor will also be filling in on January's Batman/Superman #28 with guest artist Robson Rocha. This new three-part epic is an untold tale from Bruce and Clark’s early crime-fighting careers, as Batman and Superman are pitted against a menace that will not only test their partnership, but their friendship as well!
Tom Taylor also gets his chance to go cosmic with Green Lantern Corps: Edge Of Oblivion featuring art by fan-favorite Ethan Van Sciver. The series picks up where Green Lantern: Lost Army left off, with a John Stewart-led GL Corps still seeking a way home, but with the universe around them on the verge of total collapse! Along the way they’ll face dying gods, worlds torn asunder and a desperate group of survivors whose only hope is this band of ring-bearing cosmic heroes.
