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.”

‘… explosive firefights, impossible odds, and heroes who never say die.’
Robert Venditti of Flash and Green Lantern fame will team with co-writer Brockton McKinney (Jenny Zero) and artist Dalts Dalton (Heavy Metal) for Savage Squad 6, the story of an “elite team of post-apocalyptic soldiers undergoing the deadliest mission of their lives.”
They’re joined by colorist Geraldo Filho and letterer Micah Myers on the four-issue miniseries coming from Dark Horse Comics.
“Brock and I have been writing together for years, and we’ve been friends even longer,” Venditti said. “For the first McDitti collaboration, we wanted to bring all the fun and abandon of ‘80s-‘90s action films to comics. Savage Squad 6 is everything we love about explosive firefights, impossible odds, and heroes who never say die.”

Melissa Capriglione kicked off a fun, art-filled meme in March — and the participants grew from there.
Way back in mid-March — which feels like a million years ago at this point, but was really just a few weeks back — Falconhyrste creator Melissa Capriglione kicked off a fun exercise that would turn into a widespread meme for artists across social media: The #SixFanarts Challenge.
What started has a simple tweet has blossomed into a fun and welcome distraction during these difficult times. And it’s pretty easy to participate: artists just ask their social media followers to throw out character names, and the artist draws six of them on a grid that Capriglione has provided.
