Another exciting announcement for January: One of our favorite writers, Brian Michael Bendis, begins his new imprint Wonder Comics for DC Comics this month! This new imprint will be geared towards teen and young adult readers, and begins with two new series this month. The first, Naomi, will begin a new mystery in the DC Universe. After Superman crashes into the small Northwestern town where Naomi lives, she goes on a hunt to see if other super-powered persons have crashed there before, and discovers this just might be related to her origins are and the history of her adoption! The second title, Young Justice, will focus on the teenage heroes of Metropolis, and will feature Superboy, Wonder Girl, Robin, and many others! We can't wait to get our hands on both of these new titles!
