Looks like my concerns about the end of DC’s kids’ titles were premature.
The DC Source blog has announced a relaunch: The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold brings back the team-up title with a new creative team, writer Sholly Fisch (who used to work on Super Friends) and artist Rick Burchett.
The first two issue guest stars will be Superman and Shazam! (whom we oldies know better as Captain Marvel). We’re told that “the series promises to surround the Caped Crusader with an A-list cast of co-stars and surprise guests, in the same fun, energetic vein as the hit cartoon television program”. I guess that means no more wacky, forgotten guest stars, only those well-known ones that will draw the numbers. ANBBATB (hee hee) launches in November.
I should have known this title wouldn’t be gone for long, since the cartoon it ties into is still running, Fridays at 7:30 Eastern on the Cartoon Network. That’s DC’s criteria for most of its kids’ books these days — does it coordinate with a cartoon or action figure line? And a new #1 is always good to goose sales.
