Since DC’s Rebirth launched in May, these books have flown off shelves. Another packed panel has just concluded, giving fans the latest news from the talent working on AQUAMAN, CYBORG, THE FLASH and HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORP.
The various talent associated with these books spoke at length about their ambitions to bring new life to the Rebirth titles, as well as their love for these DC characters.
AQUAMAN, which launched in June from writer Dan Abnett with artists Brad Walker, Phil Briones, Scot Eaton, Oscar Jimenez and Jesus Merino, follows Arthur Curry and his struggle to create a unity between land and sea in the face of a skeptical surface population and his vengeance-driven arch enemy Black Manta. Artist Brad Walker discussed his character design for the King of Atlantis with the crowd. Check out issue #4 in August.
CYBORG, launching with its one-shot Rebirth this fall, from writer John Semper Jr. with artists Tony Kordos, Sandra Hope, and Paul Pelletier, will feature a look at the man inside the machine, Victor Stone, the youngest member of the League. John Semper Jr. gave the crowd a sneak peek into this new book coming September 7, and continuing bi-monthly.
THE FLASH, from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico brings dramatic changes to the Scarlet Speedster’s life, including new speedsters to take under his wing, and new speedsters to fight against. Williamson talked about his ambitions for Barry Allen’s future and what happens when the Speed Force affects other citizens of Central City. Find out more in issue #3 this Wednesday, July 27.
HAL JORDAN AND THE GREEN LANTERN CORP launched earlier this month from writer Rob Venditti and artist Ethan Van Sciver, exploring Hal Jordan’s fight to retain his humanity, unite the remaining members of the Corps and save the universe from Sinestro and the fear-guided Yellow Lanterns.
