One of the most beloved names in all-ages superhero comics -- DC's Super Powers -- is being revived as a six-issue miniseries from the creative team behind hits like Itty Bitty Hellboy, Aw Yeah Comics and Tiny Titans...and now we've got your first look at interior art from the anticipated reboot.
Art Baltazar and Franco will draw the Justice League -- y'know, for kids! -- in Super Powers next month.
The story apparently revolves around Superman and Wonder Woman (along with The Flash, Martian Manhunter, and Aquaman) searching for Batman, who has gone missing.
He can't be all that hard to find, though, right? I mean, he's on the cover.
It looks to us from these preview pages as though Superman and Batman are swapping rogues -- and having a difficult time getting into the groove of it.
Anyway, this creative team have been consistently producing excellent all-ages work, including a lot of work for DC. Tiny Titans earned an Eisner Award, and shortly thereafter they went on to produce Superman Family Adventures, which was for a time the most "authentic"-feeling Superman title as the New 52 era had trouble finding its feet.
The Super Powers Collection was a line of action figures based on DC superheroes and supervillains that was created by Kenner Products in the 1980s. There were three waves of the toys -- the first two packaged with a mini-comic featuring the character whose toy you were buying -- and then a miniseries was produced by DC Comics with art by comics industry legend Jack Kirby. In recent years, the Super Powers Collection designs have been reissued in the collector's market as high end action figures.
You can check out the solicitation text below and the covers and interior preview pages in the image gallery attached here. Final Order Cutoff for this book is Monday, October 31, so make sure to get your orders in before trick or treating.
