Task Force Z and DC Vs. Vampires are two new series announced today by DC Comics for this Halloween and both written by Matthew Rosenberg, with a little help from writer James Tynion IV on the latter series.
Task Force Z will be pencilled by Eddie Barrows and inked by Eber Ferreira, while DC Vs. Vampires #1 (of 12) has yet to reveal its art team. Both will be available Tuesday October 26th:
“On A-Day, hundreds of Gotham City’s most dangerous and deranged criminals were left dead after an attack on Arkham Asylum and now, they’re getting a second chance at life. A mysterious benefactor is bringing together a new Task Force and has recruited the only person who could lead them, someone who knows what it’s like to come back from a brutal death: Red Hood. Now Jason Todd has to unravel the mystery surrounding this team of the recently deceased while leading a line-up of some of Gotham City’s worst criminals who’ve ever lived: Bane. Man-Bat. The Arkham Knight. Sundowner. Mr. Bloom.”
“In the tradition of DCEASED comes a new, terrifying story from the minds of James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg, and Otto Schmidt (Future State: Catwoman). DC VS. VAMPIRES, is a special, standalone twelve-issue maxiseries, that will pit the Justice League against a secret army of vampires, leaving our heroes unsure of who they can trust.”
