Brian Michael Bendis Announces Wonder Comics Imprint and the Return of Impulse and Conner Kent Superboy


Dan DiDio and Jim Lee hosted a “Meet the Publishers” panel to kick off New York Comic Con and while they spent time talking about all the success DC Comics has been having, they also brought out Brian Michael Bendis to talk about Superman and his Jinxworld books.  If that doesn't get you excited, maybe something else Bendis talked about will...his new Wonder Comics Imprint.

Brian Michael Bendis revealed the first details of WONDER COMICS, his personally curated line of teen-focused, in-continuity comic books scheduled to debut in early 2019. The line will be anchored by the return of Impulse (Bart Allen) and Superboy (Conner Kent), teaming up with Robin (Tim Drake) as the nucleus of an all-new YOUNG JUSTICE, which Bendis will write with art by his ACTION COMICS partner in crime, Patrick Gleason. As a tease for his Saturday evening spotlight panel, Bendis also announced the rest of the first wave of titles:
  • NAOMI, which Bendis will co-write with David Walker (CYBORG), featuring art by Jamal Campbell (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: VIXEN)

  • WONDER TWINS, written by Mark Russell (THE FLINTSTONES, EXIT STAGE LEFT: THE SNAGGLEPUSS CHRONICLES, DC Black Label’s SECOND SON) with art by Stephen Byrne (JUSTICE LEAGUE/POWER RANGERS)

  • DIAL H FOR HERO, an updated take on the Silver Age classic series from the team of writer Sam Humphries (HARLEY QUINN, GREEN LANTERNS) and artist Joe Quinones (BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA)
That is some crazy stuff and we will have to wait for more details Saturday Night, but I'm sure that people will be pumped for the return of Impulse and Conner Kent.  Oh, and Reggie is already excited about the Return of Dial H!

  1. Indeed some good news. I still laugh at the fans upset about the (apparent) death of Wally in Heroes in Crisis. The last Bart we got was to a lot of readers an unwelcome revision. I expect Bendis to go more traditional.
