DC Comics will revisit the Challengers of the Unknown in a new miniseries.  New Challengers is written by Scott Snyder and Aaron Gillespie and illustrate by Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson. Kubert provides covers for the first issue of the six-issue series, which will be in stores on May 16.  The first issue sports a foldout cover.

New Challengers sports a new cast of five misfit superheroes led by the mysterious Professor to execute deadly missions in various corners of the multiverse.  The series draws from the universe of the original Challengers of the Unknown, which debuted in 1957, and spun out of the recent Dark Nights: Metal event (see "DC 'Dark Knights' Introduces 'Dark Matter'").
