The second, titled DC: The Doomed and the Damned, will feature stories by Marv Wolfman, Ken Porter, John Arcudi, Saladin Ahmed, Riley Rossmo, Travis Moore and more. It’ll feature short stories starring Batman, Madame Xanadu, Man-Bat, Green Lantern, Etrigan and more.

Tom Taylor and Daniele Di Nicuolo are teaming up for a new series about “seven powerful secrets” that could change the world.
Seven Secrets #1 will arrive from BOOM! Studios in August, by the writer of The Deep and Suicide Squad, and the artist of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
“I can’t wait to share one of the most ambitious stories I’ve ever been a part of with every comic reader out there. Daniele’s art will make you fall in love with Caspar and our whole cast of characters,” said Taylor. “What are the Seven Secrets? Why are they so fiercely protected? Join me, Daniele, and BOOM! Studios for a chance to learn what’s been hidden.”
