The five-issue miniseries will look at events in DC continuity from the point of view of characters who are members of “historically disenfranchised” groups, including Jefferson Pierce (Black Lightning) and his daughter Anissa (Thunder), Mal Duncan (Herald), his wife, Karen Beecher (Bumblebee), Renee Montoya (the Question), and Tatsu Yamashiro (Katana). The title is a riff on The History of the DC Universe, a prose-heavy two-issue series that laid out the DC continuity after the Crisis on Infinite Earths reset.
The creative team on the series also includes Italian artists Giuseppe “Cammo” Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi and Spanish-American colorist José Villarrubia on the project; the covers will be by Camuncoli, working with Marco Mastrazzo, and Jamal Campbell, who was the artist for the DC series Naomi.
Ridley’s first work for DC was The Authority: Human on the Inside, which was published in 2004, and he also collaborated with Georges Jeanty and Karl C. Story on The American Way.
