Brian Michael Bendis, David F. Walker and Jamal Campbell will continue to explore the mysteries behind their creation Naomi as the Justice League member leaps into her second solo series next year.
Naomi: Season 2 will run for six issues starting in March and will feature some of Naomi’s new friends since she joined the League — including Black Adam and Superman. DC also promises the return of the villainous Zumbado from her first series.
“I am so excited that the entire original creative team was able to return to put together this very important chapter in Naomi McDuffie’s life and legacy,” Bendis said. “Naomi has been thrown into the deep end of life and the series is about that. What Naomi is going through in the superhero universe is what a lot of people go through in the real world. All the sudden you’re in over your head and things are expected of you and there are still so many questions and mysteries about her parents, birth world, powers and the world she grew up in. You’re in for lots of surprises!”
Here’s the description from DC: Season Two launches straight from Season One and her appearances in Young Justice and Justice League. Naomi now stands side-by-side with the likes of Superman, Batman, and The Flash, yet at the same time, she still has her small-town life and relationships with her parents and friends to navigate.
“It feels really good to be working with Jamal and Brian again,” co-writer Walker said. “All three of us are in very different places professionally and personally in our lives, and that brings an invigorating energy to the creative process as we chronicle this next chapter in Naomi’s adventures. The first story we wrote was about Naomi learning who she really is, and now this story is all about unpacking the realities of what it means to be a Super Hero.”
Naomi debuted in 2018, as Bendis, Walker and Campbell launched the new character into her own book as part of Bendis’ Wonder Comics pop-up imprint. She went on to appear in the Bendis-written Young Justice and Justice League.
“Despite being apart for a bit, we’ve all used that time to think about where we want to take Naomi and her story after Season One,” artist Campbell said. “And now we can hit the ground running, creatively refreshed and ready to continue where we left off.”
The first issue of seaosn 2 is scheudled to arrive in stores March 8.
