DC Comics announces several new titles and storyline coming next year as part of the ‘Dawn of DC’ initiative.
DC today revealed plans to launch more than 20 new titles next year in the wake of their close-to-ending Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and the upcoming DC Universe: Lazarus Planet. Dawn of DC, their new publishing initiative for 2023, will feature not only new titles but will also spotlight “fan-favorite superheroes and super-villains that haven’t been front and center for some time.”
“After the near-Multiverse-ending events in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and DC Universe: Lazarus Planet, the DC Universe will be heading toward the light,” said Jim Lee, DC publisher and chief creative officer. “With brand-new series and story arcs from some of the top creative members in comics, Dawn of DC is one of our most ambitious initiatives ever and is a chance for us to tell bigger and bolder stories across our line.”
Here’s the teaser image for what’s to come, which features icons for several upcoming titles that were announced today — with more to be revealed on the right side in the future:

“Part Extreme Studios, part Vertigo Comics. It’s a story about love and loss, and ego, and murder most foul.”
Tim Seeley and Tony Fleecs have teamed up for a new comic that’s “part Extreme Studios, part Vertigo Comics” as the duo share their love for those early Image superheroes in Local Man.
“Local Man is Tony and I teaming up to make a comic book that combines what we love about ’90s superheroes, with our shared affections for crime and horror stories,” Seeley told CBR. “Part Extreme Studios, part Vertigo Comics. It’s a story about love and loss, and ego, and murder most foul. But it’s also about nostalgia, and promises not fulfilled—with lots of gritted teeth, and epic head punches.”
Seeley and Fleecs have both had their own success at Image, with titles like Revival and Stray Dogs. Each issue of the series will come in a “flip book” format, with a lead story drawn by Fleecs and a superhero flashback drawn by Seeley. Both are accomplished writers and artists, so it’s good to see them flexing both those muscles here.

Enter the very deadly Wilmhurst Gated Community next February.
Kyle Starks and Piotr Kowalski will pull back the curtain on the life and times of serial killers in Where Monsters Lie, a new miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics.
The duo will be joined by colorist Vladimir Popov and letterer Josh Reed for the story, which is set at the Wilmhurst Gated Community — which caters to all sorts of killers, murderers and monsters.
“Piotr and I are so thrilled that word is finally out about Where Monsters Lie,” Starks told The Daily Dead. “We’re extremely excited about this series and for everyone to meet the twisted, terrible monsters of the Wilmhurst Gated Community and what happens when a survivor to their nightmarish murder sprees shows up ready for revenge. Anyone who has ever loved a slasher movie or wanted to see their favorite horror monsters team up are going to love this one!”
