Early Saturday morning, ahead of an upcoming panel at New York Comic Con, DC Comics accidentally leaked all their top secret announcements for Vertigo and Young Animal. Oops!
Their loss is our gain though, especially because we now know that Eisner-nominated creator Magdalene Visaggio will team up with artist Sonny Liew for a new six-issue miniseries called Eternity Girl under the Young Animal banner. Check out the details below:
ETERNITY GIRL, the new miniseries from Eisner and GLAAD-nominated writer Magdalene Visaggio (Kim & Kim) and Eisner award-winning artist Sonny Liew (The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye) follows
Urania Blackwell, a former CIA agent who can’t die. Her only solution? Destroy the universe first. This six-issues series launches March 2018 from DC’s Young Animal.
In addition, DC also revealed information about Milk Wars, the upcoming weekly crossover mashing up Young Animal titles with DCU characters and starting in January, which you can read about here, and two new series from Vertigo: Motherlands by Si Spurrier and Rachael Stott and Deathbed by Joshua Williamson and Riley Rossmo. You can read more about that here.
UPDATE: More info about this series was revealed at the actual panel today.
And on Twitter, Visaggio clarified:
I wanna clarify that the initial press release was incorrect, and that the book is NOT about Urania Blackwell. https://t.co/Q603H80hI3
