DC Comics announced their new 2023 initiative which will tell stories of their flagship character while promising to highlight fan-favorite secondary characters.
“DC Comics is embarking on a yearlong storytelling initiative: Dawn of DC. Following the events of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and DC Universe: Lazarus Planet, the world’s superheroes have emerged from the biggest, most devastating battles of their lives and are reinvigorated in their fights against evil. With epic new storylines, over 20 exciting new titles, superstar creative teams, and villains that will push the heroes beyond their limits in bold adventures, this line-wide, multievent narrative initiative kicks off with January’s Action Comics #1051,” they said on their website.
New titles will feature characters such as Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, the Doom Patrol, Superboy, Shazam, Steel, and a handful of others.
DC Comics chief creative officer Jim Lee said, “After the near-Multiverse-ending events in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and DC Universe: Lazarus Planet, the DC Universe will be heading toward the light.”
“With brand-new series and story arcs from some of the top creative members in comics, Dawn of DC is one of our most ambitious initiatives ever and is a chance for us to tell bigger and bolder stories across our line,” he added.
It is not just heroes who are getting the spotlight. Batman rogues like the Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and the Penguin will also play major roles in the new initiative.
“Dawn of DC is an easy entry point for both lifelong readers and those picking up a comic for the first time to dive into the new stories. Over 20 new comic titles will be launching throughout 2023,” DC explained.
“Dawn of DC” will officially launch in January 2023 with Superman leading the way in the aforementioned Action Comics #1051.
