DC gave a virtual presentation to comic book retailers at this year’s ComicsPro event, and announced 11 new titles that they plan to publish in 2021.
The upcoming new titles include (as briefly described by DC):
- Deathstroke Inc.
- Harley Quinn Animated Series sequel
- A Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary title
- Elseworld (1/2 of the new center of new DC Omniverse)
- “DC Vampires” (described as working title)
- Robin and Batman
- Joker: A Puzzle Box
- The Legend of Batman
- Crush and Lobo
- Nubia and the Amazons
- DC Middle Ages
In a follow-up report, the publisher said that more information will come about these projects throughout the year.
The publisher also announced that they intended to participate in the Free Comic Book Day 2021
DC originally announced a May 1 date, but Newsarama has confirmed it was incorrect.
The publisher reported on the virtual presentation to the sole dealer audience, including DC publisher and creative director Jim Lee, new SVP and general manager Daniel Cherry III, and editor-in-chief Marie Javins, with Lee “confirming DC’s commitment to publishing comics and the direct market. “
DC says it referred to sales successes in 2020 such as Batman: Three Jokers, DCeased: Dead Planet, Batman: The Joker War and Dark Nights: Death Metal.
According to DC, Javins commented on the “positive reception received by new characters such as Punchline, Clownhunter, Liar Liar and Ghost-Maker and spoke with DC’s ongoing commitment to a more additive universe of characters.”
Maybe one day some of the 11 new titles will contribute to Newsarama’s list the best DC stories of all time.
