Although message boards are likely buzzing over announcements that Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch are re-teaming for a run on Fantastic Four, and that Alex Ross is returning to Marvel for a mysterious Captain America-related project, the most interesting news coming out of Wizard World Chicago’s second day may be that DC Comics is retooling its Johnny DC imprint.
The effort, spearheaded by Coordinating Editor Jann Jones, will include the cancellation of Teen Titans Go! and Justice League Unlimited, and the addition Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam, by Mike Kunkel, Tiny Titans, by Art Baltazar, and Super Friends, by Sholly Fisch and rotating artistic teams.
Also worth noting: During DC’s “New Worlds Order” panel, Dan DiDio revealed that that a New Frontier one-shot, by Darwyn Cooke, will be released to coincide with the Justice League: New Frontier DVD.
