New Dawn of DC 2023 details reveal Cyborg, Titans, Green Lantern, and more

Plus, check out the Dawn of DC timeline, as it contains hidden secrets for later in 2023.

Press Release

Today, DC Comics has revealed the next stretch of Dawn of DC titles for 2023, with details surrounding creative teams and future titles. New titles include Titans by Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott, Green Lantern by Jeremy Adams and Xermánico, and Cyborg by Morgan Hampton and Tom Raney. The year-long publishing initiative was first announced in November, promising 20 new titles, with many announced then. The Dawn of DC kicked off this week with Action Comics #1051.

That’s not all, though. Scroll down to see some “hidden” reveals not yet officially announced, cover art, and further details for each of the new series coming out in May.

DC Comics has released a new timeline to go with this news, which you can see below.

DC expands Dawn of DC plans with Cyborg, Titans, and Green Lantern

We can see Superman and then Doom Patrol symbols from left to right. Then the highlight of this timeline is plans for Shazam, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Titans, and Batman around the same time. We can also see Wonder Woman and Hawkman’s plans after those.

But wait, let’s brighten that a bit:

With some enhanced brightening, we can see “The Return of the JL” and what appears to be “Knights Terrors” further down the timeline. Given the pacing of things, one can assume these later events might not occur until the fall or winter. It’s also much clearer there are purple tentacles and what appears to be a skull at the center of the timeline. Could this mean Brainiac is this year’s big bad?

Here’s a rundown of today’s announcements:

Dawn of DC: Titans

Tom Taylor (Nightwing, Adventures of Superman: Jon Kent) and artist Nicola Scott (Wonder Woman: Historia, Earth 2) are bringing the Titans to the forefront of the DC Universe starting this May.

The Dark Crisis is over and the Justice League is no more. Now, a new team has to rise and protect the earth…TITANS! The time has come for the Teen Titans to grow up. Each member joined as a much younger hero certain that one day they’d be invited to join the Justice League. Now they’re not just joining the League…they’re replacing it! Are the no-longer-teen heroes ready for the big leagues? Danger lurks around every corner as Super Heroes and Super-Villains alike challenge the new team before they’ve even begun. Will the DCU ever be the same? Find out in this landmark first issue available on May 16!

Dawn of DC: Green Lantern

Green Lantern #1 is available at local comic shops on May 9 and also features part one of the John Stewart Green Lantern story from writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (Action Comics) and artist Osvaldo Montos (Entropy)—a war journal epic begins anew.

The visionary  team of Jeremy Adams and Xermánico (Flashpoint Beyond) present a tale of redemption, loss, and finding out that maybe you can go home again, in Green Lantern. Spinning out of the events of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Guardians of Oa at the heart of the Green Lantern Corps have quarantined Sector 2814, home of the planet Earth—and its champion along with it! A heartbreaking defeat has sent Hal reeling, returning home to rediscover his roots…and find the man responsible for ruining his life: Sinestro. At least if you’re willing to hot-wire a power ring to do it.

Dawn of DC: Cyborg

Writer Morgan Hampton from The Milestone Initiative Talent Development Program joins forces with veteran artist Tom Raney (Green Lantern, Uncanny X-Men) to give Cyborg the Dawn of DC epic he deserves starting on May 16!

When a family emergency brings Cyborg back home to Detroit, Victor Stone surprisingly finds himself enjoying returning to the simpler life–where everybody sees him for who he really is and always was, rather than a larger-than-life superhero. It’s been a while since Vic’s been able to lower his guard and seek a purpose outside of being Cyborg 24/7. But a lot has changed in Detroit while Victor’s been away. An aggressive new company is turning the Motor City into an overclocked engine for revolutionary artificial intelligence…and no one knows better than Cyborg that technological transformation always comes at a steep human price! Fans can also get a preview of what’s to come for Cyborg in Hampton’s story in DC Power: A Celebration available on January 31.
