Alan Scott, Jay Garrick and Wesley Dodds each take the spotlight in October.
Geoff Johns’ “The New Golden Age” line will continue in October with miniseries focused on three of DC’s Golden Age heroes: Alan Scott: The Green Lantern by Tim Sheridan and Cian Tormey, Jay Garrick: The Flash by Jeremy Adams and Diego Olortegui, and Wesley Dodds: The Sandman by Robert Venditti and Riley Rossmo.
The three miniseries continue the overarching story being told by Johns in Justice Society of America and Stargirl: The Lost Children — the latter of which wraps up on May 9.
“It’s long past time that the heroes of the Justice Society had their own titles again,” Johns said. “At the same time, they had to be special, important and emotional stories, each one exploring character, revealing secrets, and introducing new heroes and villains to the DC Universe.”

Kate Beaton’s ‘Ducks’ was named an ‘honor book’ by the awards program.
Our Little Secret, Emily Carrington’s account of her abuse by a neighbor as a child and her attempts as an adult to find justice and peace, has won the 2021 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize. Drawn and Quarterly published the graphic novel in March of 2022.
The award comes with a $2,500 prize, and the winner is chosen by a panel of judges.
“In this graphic memoir, Emily Carrington takes readers through her traumatic story of childhood abuse. While the novel begins with a warning, it only partially prepares the reader for the powerful narrative and emotional rollercoaster that they are about to be taken on,” the judges said. “Throughout the journey, Carrington expertly uses the graphic novel format to set the tone and pace the narrative. The story is clear and engaging and invites readers to witness the author’s futile quest for redress through the courts. This cultivates empathy and performs a kind of grassroots justice without sacrificing literary and artistic excellence. Carrington’s visuals are confident and original. She uses metaphor beautifully, and seamlessly weaves surrealist threads throughout the narrative. ‘Our Little Secret’ is fluid, utterly engaging, and evokes empathy and compels action.”
