DC Comics has announced new creative teams for February's issues of Teen Titans, New Suicide Squad and Aquaman.
All three of the new writers are actually DC veterans, with other titles currently ongoing at the series. The artists, too, have ongoing or recent projects at the publisher. It isn't totally clear whether these will be ongoing creative teams or fill-ins, especially since there have been recent indications that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns will soon return to Aquaman for a story with his former Aquaman collaborator, artist Ivan Reis.
New Suicide Squad #17 will be written by Tim Seeley (GRAYSON, BATMAN ETERNAL) and illustrated by Juan Ferreyra (GOTHAM BY MIDNIGHT, BATMAN ETERNAL):
Indentured super villain Harley Quinn has made covert contact with someone outside the walls of Belle Reve prison—and this mysterious savior has discovered the secrets of Amanda Waller and Task Force X.
Next, Aquaman #49 will be written by Dan Abnett (TITANS HUNT, HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR, EARTH 2: SOCIETY) and illustrated by Vicente Cifuentes (BATMAN/SUPERMAN, CONVERGENCE: JUSTICE LEAGUE):
In the aftermath of the Thule invasion, Aquaman must show the people of Atlantis that he was the target of a conspiracy and earn their trust once more. And no, it’s not going to be easy...
Finally, Teen Titans #17 will be written by Greg Pak (ACTION COMICS, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) with art by Noel Rodriguez (RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS):
With their backs against the wall, the Titans are wanted across the country! Now, Tim Drake must find a way to clear the team’s name while staying one step ahead of the law. But Wonder Girl’s past is also catching up with her and it won’t wait for the Titans’ troubles to calm down.
There's also no indication whether any of those writers will be stepping away from their current writing duties or whether these will simply be an expansion of their relationship with DC. Since the blog post making these announcements referred to them "expanding" their reach with the company, though, it does seem likely they won't be going anywhere soon. I guess we'll find out more when the full solicitations go live in about an hour...!
