DC has announced a new crossover coming next year, Lazarus Planet, that spins out of Mark Waid’s work on both World’s Finest and the upcoming Batman vs. Robin series.

The horror miniseries about a 1960s rock star kicks off in February.
Writer Rich Douek, artist Alex Cormack and letterer Justin Birch return to IDW next year for Breath of Shadows, another horror miniseries following their work on Road of Bones and Sea of Sorrows. This one will fall under the IDW Originals banner that’s being shepherded by editor Mark Doyle.
Breath of Shadows is the story of a 1960s rock star/heroin addict who goes looking for an easy solution to his addiction in the South American jungle, only to find “primal horrors that put his own inner demons to shame.”
“With Breath of Shadows, Alex and I wanted to continue exploring the dark themes we began with in Road of Bones and Sea of Sorrows,” Douek said. “I absolutely love working with Alex—Breath of Shadows is the latest example of how our creative partnership has evolved over the years into something awesome, and I hope to be working with him for a long, long time.”
