Happy Monday heroes! We have a press release about DC Comics who has finally created an imprint for young adults and middle grade imprints. To quote some of the press release which goes into details about the books you can expect.
DC Entertainment revealed two new original graphic novel publishing imprints today, DC Ink focused on young adult (YA) readers, and DC Zoom focused on middle grade (MG) readers. Both imprints will feature a world class line-up of authors who have established YA and MG fan bases. These authors will bring their storytelling expertise to a DC Universe filled with iconic characters like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and many more. The first titles from DC Ink and DC Zoom will be released in Fall 2018.
The first titles from DC Ink include HARLEY QUINN: BREAKING GLASS by Mariko Tamaki (SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER) with art by Steve Pugh, and MERA by Danielle Paige (DOROTHY MUST DIE series). The first title to hit shelves from DC Zoom will be DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: SEARCH FOR ATLANTIS from writer Shea Fontana and artist Yancey Labat. All three titles will go on sale in Fall 2018, with many more titles from DC Ink and DC Zoom set to follow in 2019.

I have to say that the book I’m excited about the most is the Teen Titans series. I know writer Kami Garcia is on it but artist Gabriel Picolo is the artist. His Teen Titans casual designs were fantastic and the fact that he’s going to possibly do a series around those character designs would be a dream come true. Anyway, that’s all for now, until next time I’m out!
