Tom King, Jorge Fornes and Dave Stewart are reuniting to take a dangerous trip to DANGER STREET.
The press release follows:
Media Release — Best-selling writer Tom King continues to plumb the depths of the DC universe, with an all-new DC Black Label comic, Danger Street. This 12-issue maxiseries reunites King with his fellow Rorschach collaborators, artist Jorge Fornés and colorist Dave Stewart in a deeply layered crime drama featuring reimagined and updated versions of some of DC’s most obscure and offbeat superheroes, from the DC 1st Issue Special series from the mid-1970’s.
Joining the Justice League is a goal for any superhero, but what happens when a quest for membership takes a sinister turn? Join Starman, Metamorpho, and Warlord as they look to prove themselves worthy by summoning and defeating Darkseid in battle. Soon they’ll learn that calling upon a New God never ends well, and their world is headed for disaster as a result! The journey to save the day will be a treacherous one filled with princesses, knights, and all kinds of monsters. Each person the heroes encounter plays a crucial role in this sprawling yet gripping narrative that is a little bit silly, a whole lot dark, and completely cool.
Book One of this 12-issue series arrives in comic book shops and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday May 3. The debut issue features a main cover by series artist Fornés, with variant covers spotlighting characters featured in both Danger Street and the original DC 1st Issue Special series. The main variant cover is drawn by comics icon Steve Rude, with a 1-in-25 ratio variant by Lee Weeks, plus a 1-in-50 ratio variant from Ben Oliver. Check local comic book shops for details and pre-ordering.
The DC UNIVERSE INFINITE digital subscription service has the complete run of the DC 1st Issue Special series, both as individual issues and as a collection. To learn more about these heroes, and for a free trial of the service, check out the website at www.dcuniverseinfinite.com.
