The “Dawn of DC” program was announced in November (see “DC Introduces ‘Dawn of DC’”), with storylines that flow out of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths and DC Universe: Lazarus Planet. Here’s a look at the creative teams and covers for the other new series that are launching in May.
Shazam! #1, by Mark Waid and Dan Mora, is slated for March 2 release with a main cover by Mora and variant covers by Chris Samnee and John Timms, plus a 1:25 variant by Evan “Doc” Shaner, a 1:50 variant by Ariel Colon, a 1:100 spot gloss pulp variant cover by Mora, and a spot foil cover by Mike Deodato.
Green Lantern #1 featuring Hal Jordan was originally slated to be written by Mariko Tamaki, but the new creative team is writer Jeremy Adams and artist Xermanico, with a backup John Stewart story by writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Montos. The first issue has an on-sale date of May 9 and will have a main cover by Xermanico, variant covers by Lucio Parrillo and Ivan Reis, a 1:25 variant by Daniel Sampere, a 1:50 variant by Ariel Colon, a 1:100 variant by Xermanico, and a 5th-color variant by Pete Woods.
Cyborg #1 has Victor Stone returning to Detroit in a series written by Morgan Hampton with art by Tom Raney. The first issue goes on sale on May 16 with a man cover by Edwin Galmon, variants by Tom Raney and Jorge Corona, a 1:25 variant by Nikolas Draper-Ivey, and a 1:50 design variant by Corona.
DC announced the other May “Dawn of DC” debuts, including Batman: The Brave and the Bold (see “All New ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold’ to Debut in May”) and three series by Asian American creators (see “Three New DC Series”), last week.
