David M. Booher, Sam Maggs and George Kambadais will revive the 1980s animated series.
Hank, Diana, Bobby, Uni and the rest of the party from the 1983 Dungeons & Dragons Saturday morning cartoon will return in Dungeons & Dragons: Saturday Morning Adventures from IDW next year.
The four-issue miniseries by David M. Booher, Sam Maggs and George Kambadais celebrates the 40th anniversary of the animated program, which ran for three seasons from 1983-1985. In it, six regular kids were transported into the world of Dungeons & Dragons, where they fought Venger and his evil forces, received guidance from the mysterious Dungeon Master and tried to find a way back home.
“As a lifelong D&D fan, it is an absolute dream to get to work reviving a childhood classic,” Maggs said. “It’s been such a blast working with IDW and the fine folks at Wizards of the Coast to home in on what made the Dungeons & Dragons Saturday morning cartoon such a cult favorite. Setting these characters up for a whole new run of stories has truly been a career highlight, and I hope fans will love seeing Uni (well…all our cool kids, but especially Uni) back in action as much as I do!”

Derek Landy and Greg Land land a new miniseries to continue their Avengers story.
All-Out Avengers, we hardly knew ye. The series, which was initially billed as an ongoing, will end with issue #5 to make way for Avengers Beyond. Both Derek Landy and Greg Land will continue as the creative team for the new miniseries.
The team will figure out the real culprit behind their recent missions — The Beyonder, the powerful being who orchestrated the first Secret Wars back in the 1980s and who recently appeared in Defenders: Beyond. While his origin has been retconned a couple of times since then, one thing that has remained consistent is his Jheri-curl hairdo.
“I am beyond excited to take everything we’ve done in All-Out Avengers and continue it into its next incarnation,” Landy said. “We’re just beginning to brush up against the wider implications of the Beyonder’s agenda and the chance to tell this kind of story—the story of gods, the one thing that scares them, and the Avengers caught in the middle—is an impossible dream come true for a kid who grew up with Secret Wars.”

The miniseries will launch at Dark Horse next March.
Jim Starlin has taken us everywhere from the Empirical Galaxy to New Genesis to the Kree empire to Gotham City, but now he’s teaming with Rags Morales to create a brand new world besieged by social injustice and rebellion.
Dark Horse will publish Order and Outrage, a four-issue miniseries, next year. Starlin and Morales will be joined by colorist Hailey Brown and letterer Michael Heisler for the project.
“I’m super excited to work with the man who taught me how to draw space gauntlets, while perusing my copies of Captain Marvel back in the 1970s.” Morales said. “That, and if anyone knows me, knows how much of a political pain in the xxx I am. So Order and Outrage is my kinda story. Lookout Order, here comes the rebellion!”
