Emerald City Comic Con has come and gone, but one panel that laid out their new line up for 2016 was DC Comics. During a panel moderated by DC Co-publisher Dan DiDio DC Comics discussed the new Hanna- Barbera series of books. Didio was joined by writers Jeff Parker and Mark Russell and showed off Future Quest, Scooby Apocalypse, The Flintstones and Wacky Raceland! (Art Seen Below)
“First to be released on May 18, Future Quest features stories about the teenage adventurer Jonny Quest from Jeff Parker and DC Exclusive artist Evan “Doc” Shaner. Fans got a chance to see the action packed cover from “Doc”, variants by Steve Rude, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Aaron Lopresti, a glance at “Team Quest”, as well as learn all the fun ins and out of the story lines from Jeff himself!
Scooby Apocalypse, set to be released on May 25, is all monsters and mayhem as the room got a glimpse of the cover from Jim Lee, along with some really cool variant covers from Howard Porter, Neal Adams, Dan Panosian, Joelle Jones and Ben Caldwell, and a peek of some interior pages of Scooby and the gang from co-writers Keith Giffen and JM Dematteis and artist Howard Porter.
The crowd also got to take a look at The Flintstones, coming July 6th, including covers and a look at our favorite families the Flinstones and the Rubbles, as well as Wacky Raceland, including covers and some amazing looks at Penelope Pitstop in the Compact Pusscat!
Mark Russel said that the satire in The Flintstones is part ‘where did the world go wrong’ and part ‘bird enslavement.’ Pebbles ad Bamm-Bamm will be ‘tweens and Barney and Fred’s involvement in the Order of the Water Buffalo will be explained.
Jeff Parker said that Johnny and Team Quest are going to have fantastic adventures. He knows it’s a daunting task to tie all the characters together into one shared universe, but he’s up to it. And since “Doc” wants to draw dinosaurs, Dino-Boy will make an appearance.”
Now after looking at eh art fork for these books I can honestly say I am not looking forward to Scooby Apocalypse, but what I am looking forward to is Future Quest. What do you think? We would love to know your thoughts in the comment section below.
