DC Comics has announced the next wave their young adult and middle grade (aka for kids) lines of comics.




The first wave of DC Ink & Zoom prints aren't even fully out yet (they're set to release next year), but today DC Comics announced the second wave of graphic novels/comics that'll be debuting in the line. 

Here's what to expect in the next wave of books:

Marieke Nijkamp, the #1 New York Times best-selling YA author of This Is Where It Ends, will bring her storytelling to DC's young adult line of graphic novels—DC Ink—with an original tale about a teenage Oracle, the superhero alter-ego that Barbara Gordon assumes after an encounter with The Joker confines her to a wheelchair. ORACLE: RISING will be joined by another tale about a teenage Batgirl, Cassandra Cain, in SHADOW OF THE BATGIRL, written by acclaimed author Sarah Kuhn, known for her popular Heroine Complex novels.

Additional DC Ink titles announced today include: TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES: A JACK HYDE STORY, the working title of an Aqualad story written by award-winning author Alex Sanchez (Rainbow Boys); DICK GRAYSON: LOST CARNIVAL, written by critically acclaimed comics writer Michael Moreci (Roche Limit); and Leigh Bardugo's WONDER WOMAN: WARBRINGER, which will be adapted from its prose form into a graphic novel by writer Louise Simonson.

DC Zoom, DC's middle grade graphic novel line, will introduce its first story starring Wonder Woman in DIANA, PRINCESS OF THE AMAZONS, written by Shannon and Dean Hale. Past collaborations from the husband-and-wife duo include the Eisner-nominated Rapunzel's Revenge graphic novel and Marvel's bestselling The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl prose novel series. Shannon Hale is also the Newbery Honor-winning author of the Princess Academy series and the New York Times best-selling Real Friends.

New artists and on-sale dates for previously announced titles were also revealed today. Gurihiru Studios will provide illustrations for Gene Luen Yang's SUPERMAN SMASHES THE KLAN, Andie Tong will draw Minh Lê's GREEN LANTERN: LEGACY graphic novel, Gustavo Duarte will join author Michael Northrop on DEAR JUSTICE LEAGUE and Thomas Pitilli has been tapped to illustrate Melissa de la Cruz's GOTHAM HIGH graphic novel. DC also announced Chris Wildgoose as the artist for Stuart Moore's adaptation of Marie Lu's BATMAN: NIGHTWALKER and revealed the graphic novel's official cover, which can be seen above.

Both publishing lines will launch in April 2019 with previously announced titles MERA: TIDEBREAKER (DC Ink), written by Danielle Paige and illustrated by Stephen Byrne; and SUPER SONS: THE POLARSHIELD PROJECT (DC Zoom), written by Ridley Pearson with art by Ile Gonzalez.

 

More info of these books can be learned at the DC for Young Readers panel at SDCC on tomorrow at 5:00 pm (PST) in room 9. Whatever new info is learned at the panel you can expect us to report on whatever new details arise from it.

Weezie! I didn't know she was still writing. That's almost enough to pick it up with no other info.
