Heroes are a lot like us. They have jobs. Significant others. Bills. And pets.
But what if those animals they keep around as loyal companions also fought crime?
That’s the questions DC and Capstone imprint Picture Window Books – a children’s publisher of illustrated fiction and nonfiction – hope to answer with DC SUPER-PETS, a new series of leveled chapter books. The project is slated to last through fall 2012 and produce 24 new titles for young readers.
Debuting in January 2011 with six titles, DC SUPER-PETS will team a number of Picture Window Books writers with TINY TITANS writer/artist and Eisner winner Art Baltazar. The full-color books introduce readers to the super-strong, fast, and smart pets of the DCU heroes, who also patrol the streets and battle villainy. The series will be available in the trade and school library market.
The first six books in the DC SUPER-PETS series will include:
Heroes of the High Seas
The Fastest Pet on Earth
Midway Monkey Madness
Pooches of Power!
Royal Rodent Rescue
Super Hero Splash Down
