DC Comics has announced a new three-month-long event series involving the CW’s DC superhero shows. The comics event series will be set entirely in the universe of the TV shows and they will be part of the show canon, approved by CW television show producers. Each of the five issues spotlights a different CW/DC superhero show with the sixth issue serving as a crossover.
All of these comics will be written or co-written by creative talent from the shows. Each issue will also include bonus material created by cast members of The CW shows, as well as “teasers” that will provide clues to the nature of the final crossover in issue #6.
Here’s a rundown of the first two issues:
EARTH-PRIME #1 (The CW’s Batwoman)
Ryan Wilder, aka Batwoman, makes her costumed comic book debut in a story co-written by series writers Natalie Abrams and Kelley Larson, plus series cast member Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox/Batwing), with art by Clayton Henry.
Ever since the tech that created many of Batman’s rogues hit the streets, Ryan Wilder has been running herself ragged trying to contain the new villains popping up around Gotham City. But when Clayface’s (making his CW debut) mud binds itself to a local high schooler, Batwoman will need help from an unexpected source to contain this muddy foe! Also, follow how Luke Fox balances his life as a super hero and a boyfriend!
EARTH-PRIME #2 (The CW’s Superman & Lois)
Superman & Lois series writers Adam Mallinger, Jai Jamison and Andrew Wong join DC fan-favorite artists Tom Grummett and Norm Rapmund in a story spotlighting Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s first anniversary. Trying to celebrate their marital bliss is never easy when you’re a super hero husband and news reporter wife; especially when world-saving and creating hard-hitting stories continue to spoil your plans! Plus, the true origins of the evil Superman from John Henry Irons’ world are finally revealed!
Both issues feature cover art by Kim Jacinto and will feature photo variant covers based on each individual show. Subsequent issues will spotlight DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, DC’s Stargirl and The Flash.
Batwoman airs Wednesdays at 9/8c and Superman & Lois airs Tuesdays at 8/7c – both on The CW. For the latest information on all of Warner Bros. Television’s DC shows on The CW, visit their website, or download the app at www.thecwtv.com.
