DC Comics reveals creative teams for their young readers lines

Both DC Ink and DC Zoom will debut next April with graphic novels featuring Batman, Raven, Black Canary, Mera and more.

Back in February DC Comics announced plans for two new graphic novel imprints aimed at younger readers — DC Zoom, aimed at middle grade readers (8-12 years) and DC Ink, aimed at young adult readers (13 and older). Today they’ve revealed the creative teams for the first four titles for each imprint.

The DC Zoom imprint kicks off next year with the following titles:

Super Sons: The Polarshield Project (April 2019)- written by Ridley Pearson and illustrated by Ile Gonzalez

DC Super Hero Girls: Spaced Out (May 2019) –written by Shea Fontana, and illustrated by Agnes Garbowska

Batman: Overdrive (August 2019)– written by Shea Fontana and illustrated by Marcelo Di Chiara

Black Canary: Ignite (October 2019)– written by Meg Cabot and illustrated by Cara McGee

And the DC Ink line debuts at the same time with the following titles:

Mera: Tidebreaker (April 2019) – written by Danielle Paige and illustrated by Stephen Byrne

Under The Moon: A Catwoman Tale (May 2019)– written by Lauren Myracle and illustrated by Isaac Goodhart

Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass (June 2019)– written by Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Steve Pugh

Teen Titans: Raven (July 2019)– written by Kami Garcia and illustrated by Gabriel Picolo

“Two of the recent areas of growth in publishing include graphic novels and books for young readers – we’re bringing those formats together with DC Ink and DC Zoom,” said DC Entertainment Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee back in February. “We’ve already experienced tremendous success with our DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels. The new DC Ink and DC Zoom slate, paired with a stellar author line-up, presents a major business growth opportunity and we couldn’t be more excited – we’re going big.”
