Gail Simone Launches "The Movement" This May

Gail Simone Launches

THE MOVEMENT by writer Gail Simone and artist Freddie Williams II



Source: DC Blog

From a Press Release on DC's The Source:

 

 

DC Comics made an announcement this past February of the new ongoing monthly and politically charged series, The Movement.  Debutting next month, The Movement #1 is brought to you from the creative team of writer Gail Simone and artist Freddie Williams II.

“The fun of something like The Movement is that it’s a logical extension of how citizens who aren’t media giant journalists, Gotham billionaires, or mythical princesses view the way power works in the DCU,” Simone revealed. “How does someone feel when the world is full of superheroes, but all the problems of the world still exist? “

“I don't think the book is about liberal vs. conservative,” she continues. “It's about values that comics have always been about, the struggle against injustice on behalf of the little guy, the powerless and innocent. That's pretty bi-partisan.”

What characters can readers expect to be appearing in the series?

“It's mostly new characters, but a couple might have subtle ties to the DCU at large,” Simone divulged. “I am absolutely in love with the core cast, I think they're fresh and thrilling and unlike the characters in any other comic. That said, sharp-eyed readers have already spotted two familiar characters; Katharsis, the brutal avenger from the popular Knightfall arc in Batgirl, and Tremor, a wonderful badass character who appeared in the pre-[New] 52 Secret Six. It's a cast of favorites for me; I haven't had this much fun with a cast since the Secret Six!”

Be sure to check out the full interviews that ran with the writer in COMIC BOOK RESOURCESNEWSARAMA, and COMIC VINE.  And check out the sneak peek of some of the premiere issue’s interior art by Freddie Williams II, shown below.

 

The Movement #1 arrives in stores on May 1, 2013.

Pretty much this. She's got a low bar to pass with her run on Batgirl.

Even if this book turns out to be good, DC will probably find a way to fuck this up in the long run.

I totally forgot this was a thing. I imagine I'll do so again in around six months.
