DC Comics recently unveiled their plans to launch two new Young Adult and Middle Grade imprints they’re calling DC Ink and DC Zoom. The imprint will focus solely on younger readers and is ramping up for an impressive launch with some well established literary talent. Creators on a few of these projects include Laurie Hales Anderson, Meg Cabot, Melissa De La Cruz, and many more.
DC Ink will focus more on young adult readers while DC Zoom will cater more to the middle grade demographic but both imprints will feature writers from the literary world, and for many, this will be their first time writing comics. The first batch of titles are said to drop in the Fall of 2018. Here’s what President of DC Entertainment, Diane Nelson, said about the project “Superheroes are more popular than ever so it only makes sense to bring these DC characters to an entirely new generation of young readers.”
The first batch of titles from DC Ink include Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass by Mark Tamale and Steve Pugh and Mera by Danielle Paige. DC Zoom’s first titles will be DC Super Hero Girls: Search for Atlantis by Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat. All three titles are to be released this Fall with more coming in 2019.
