Announcing the next arc of DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS

By Alex Nagorski Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

The next arc of DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS marks the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 debut of not one but TWO heroes – Black Lightning and Blue Devil!

 

Written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Robson Rocha, this 5-issue arc asks the question: can two very different heroes keep it together without killing each other long enough to unlock a new corner of the DC Universe?

 

“I can't begin to explain how excited I am to be writing this book!” Andreyko told THE SOURCE. “When I first heard the high-concept, I was instantly writing scenes in my head. I've always been a fan of the ‘buddy concept,’ especially when it's love/hate, and teaming these two seemingly disparate characters together makes for some great story dynamics. How did Blue Devil and Black Lightning meet? Why are they working together? Do they even like each other? All … well, ok, some … will be answered. Add in a bloodthirsty bad guy, a crazy drug, a guy in a demon suit and another who shoots electricity, mix well. Now enjoy!”

 

DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #13 lands in stores on October 17th. Below, take a sneak peek at the DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 character designs for Blue Devil and Black Lightning done by artist Brett Booth.
