As well as sharing the overviews of the 16 inaugural DC Zoom and DC Link titles, DC Comics have also confirmed which two will lead the charge this Fall. Those are The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid and DC Super Heroes Girls: At Metropolis High.
- The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid by acclaimed writer and illustrator Kirk Scroggs tells a lighthearted coming-of-age tale about a half-human/half-plant boy named Russell Weinwright. The book is completely written and drawn in first-person journal entries and features a fun, innovative lined notebook-style format.
- DC Super Heroes Girls: At Metropolis High marks the first DC Super Hero Girls (DCSHG) graphic novel by new series writer Amy Wolfram. Wolfram is joined by DCSHG veteran artist Yancey Labat for this original story set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that will air Sundays at 4 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network beginning March 17, 2019.
DC has also confirmed on-sale dates and shared early looks at forthcoming titles from DC Ink, the publisher’s new young adult graphic novel line. The current DC Ink slate for Fall 2019 includes Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass from Mariko Tamaki and Steve Pugh, and Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwaker prose novel adapted in graphic form by Stuart Moore with art by Chris Wildgoose.
