DC Comics Launches New Imprint With Former My Chemical Romance Singer
During a surprise appearance at the Emerald City Comicon, the Eisener Award winning author of The Umbrella Academy Gerard Way, announced the launch of DC’s new Imprint Young Animals.
The mature Pop-Up imprint will feature four new titles that will be “comics for dangerous humans.” The flagship of the monthly series will be a relaunch of Doom Patrol, which according to DC comics “which will set the tone for the other titles in the series.”
The other titles being released are Shade, The Changing Girl about an alien that invades a 16 year-old bully’s body. Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye follows the travels of a man and his daughter as they navigate the dark places of the earth and the mind. Lastly, Mother Panic is a celebrity heiress that moonlights as a violent vigilante combating Gotham City’s high society underbelly.
In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Gerard Way is asked why he described this new line as “comics for dangerous humans” to which he replies, “I’d like to think that the comics exist for people who want something different or would like mature-reader takes on DCU characters. It’s also there for people who maybe don’t normally like superhero comics.”
The Young Animal Imprint launches September 2017.
