For DC Comics’ Dawn of DC, there are to launch twenty new comic books across 2023. Or, from another angle, one or two a month. So… business as usual? The first titles will be:
Green Lantern: John Stewart by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and TBA artist. The beloved John Stewart gets back to basics as the military-trained, gritty, but heroic Green Lantern.
Their PR states that “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.”
And that “All year long, DC will be celebrating the classic characters while also embracing the next generation of new heroes, as we’re going to need everyone to help fight against the darkness. Dawn of DC will shine the spotlight on a number of fan-favorite superheroes and super-villains that haven’t been front and center for some time.”
“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,” said DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee. “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.”
So Action Comics #1051 will kick off Dawn of DC. “Action Comics #1051 is the start of a format change that will see three new stories included in each issue from writers Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Dan Jurgens (The Death of Superman), and Leah Williams (Amazing Mary Jane).
Will make up for for lacklustre February solicits for the rest of DC Comics
