DC Comics will launch Strange Adventures, a 12-issue series by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, and Evan "Doc" Shaner, in March. King and Gerads worked together on the hit series Mister Miracle, for which they won Eisner Awards for Best Limited Series, Best Writer, and Best Penciller/Inker (see "First Second Takes Most Eisners").

"I wanted to tell two stories simultaneously," King said, "and have them play off each other: the story we tell others and the story others tell about us. To represent these two aspects, we use two of the best artists in comics, then we weave those two tellings together in odd and new ways that I don’t think anyone’s seen in modern superhero comics.  So it’s a way to do something new and different and hopefully something cool and compelling."

Adam Strange is a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor.  Strange is the hero of the planet Rann.  Things are never as simple as they appear, however.  Decisions made during the battles on Rann have come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe.

King will also be writing the upcoming Batman/Catwoman series next year (see "Tom King Off ‘Batman,’ to ‘Batman/Catwoman’").
