COMICS: The Occupy Movement Comes To DC Comics

COMICS: The Occupy Movement Comes To DC Comics

Yesterday, we received word on a whole host of titles scheduled to end in May and now we have two new titles scheduled to make their debut. Read on to find out more details about the latest from Gail Simone and Art Baltazar.




The Movement from writer Gail Simone and artist Freddie Williams II and The Green Team from Art Baltazar, Franco and Ig Guara will be replacing I,Vampire and DC Universe Presents in May. There will be six new titles coming in June with one of those spots most likely belonging to Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's Man of Steel. The creative teams for The Green and The Movement are being purposely vague and abstract in the interview with Huffington Post so we have virtually zero details about the new comic books. However, interestingly enough, for a topic that seems tailor-made for a miniseries set outside of the The New 52, it appears both titles are firmly set within the DCU proper. Will be interesting to see who the leads are and whether the book will be told from the viewpoint of superheroes or civilian bystanders. More details as we have them.

+Who defends the powerless against the GREEDY and the CORRUPT? Who protects the homeless and poverty-stricken from those who would PREY upon them in the DARK OF NIGHT?

+Let those who abuse the system know this as well: We have our OWN super humans now. They are not afraid of your badges or Leagues. And they will not be SILENCED.
