Gerard Way Eager to Once Again Delay DC’s Young Animal Imprint Beginning in July

DC Comics’ Young Animal imprint is set to return in July with the inevitably delayed Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds and a couple new titles. Young Animal’s flagship title Doom Patrol by Gerard Way and Nick Derington, and later fill-in artist Dan McDaid, had 12 issues released in 25 months, after delay after delay after delay. It’s been six months since the last issue of Doom Patrol, so hopefully Way has been getting a head start on the new series in order to avoid any delays, but we’re not holding our breath.

Written by Gerard Way and Jeremy Lambert, with art by James Harvey, Doc Shaner, Nick Pitarra, and Becky Cloonan, Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds is set to release July 3.

Gerard Way and the World’s Strangest Super Heroes return in an all-new series that takes them beyond the borders of time and space! The Doom Patrol will go on an epic road trip around the solar system, facing off against the unusual and bizarre including the fanatical fitness fiends of planet Orbius and the Marathon Eternal. Big changes are coming for these unusual heroes, including Robotman coming to terms with his new life as a human.

Since My Chemical Romance isn’t touring, Gerard’s brother Mikey Way clearly needed a job and so comes Collapser. Written by Mikey Way and Shaun Simon, with art by Ilias Kyriazis, Collapser is set to release July 17.

Liam James is a wannabe DJ whose life goals are almost completely dashed by his crippling anxiety—until a package arrives in the mail containing a black hole that gives him amazing powers and draws him into a cosmic conflict far beyond anything he’d ever imagined. But Liam will discover that when it comes to life, love, mental health and superhero responsibilities, there’s no such thing as a quick fix, and that power comes with a cost.

Unrelated to any member of My Chemical Romance, as far as we know, writer N.K. Jemisin and artist Jamal Campbell are working on the new Green Lantern story Far Sector, to be released sometime in 2019.

Newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people, for the past six months. The City has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.

But that’s all about to change.

This new series introduces a dizzying game of politics and philosophies as Jo discovers a brewing revolution in the City, aided and abetted by some of its most powerful citizens.
