DC announces more issues of ‘Represent!’

Jesse Holland, Doug Braithwaite and more will contribute stories to the anthology series.

DC’s Represent!, a digital-first series that debuted last fall with a story about Christian Cooper’s encounter with a racist dog owner in Central Park, will return in February with five weekly issues.

DC created the series to “showcase and introduce creators traditionally underrepresented in the mainstream comic book medium.” They also offer non-fiction/slice of life stories versus the traditional superheroes you might expect from the publisher.

Represent! is the kind of innovative and personal storytelling I’ve always believed in,” said Marie Javins, DC editor-in-chief. “Throughout history, stories have been catalysts to expand hearts, minds and culture; having the chance to do so with this group of talented writers and artists has been invigorating and has been embraced throughout DC.”

Each issue will cost 99 cents and will be released on Mondays on comiXology and DC’s other digital platforms beginning Feb. 1.

“Stories about Jon and Damian at this time in their lives allows me to tap back into those early years of my own life of being a crazy kid, while also allowing me to mine the fertile ground of my own son’s current adventures, which in turn helps keep me tapped into the general zeitgeist of today’s youth and what they’re going through and thinking about,” Tomasi said. “Jon and Damian are so different—the angel and the devil on your shoulder so to speak—with each one having such a distinctive backstory and perspective that the drama between them is organic and damn easy to bring to life on the page. Best of all, it’s a helluva lotta fun!”
