Black and Blue in the DCU
The next arc of DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS marks 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?
Speaking to THE SOURCE, Andreyko said:
"I can't begin to explain how excited I am to be writing this book! 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 Lightening 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!"
Andreyko gave an exclusive interview to ComicBookResources. For more details and juicy tidbits, you can read it here by clicking this link !
