Beyond The Bat: DC Announces Two More Series To Debut In October

DKN readers will no doubt remember the various stories we posted last week pertaining to several new series being launched by DC this October. Well, the news hasn’t stopped, as this week is already off to a busy start. Two more titles can be added to that list: Lobo and Trinity of Sin.

The first title we will discuss is Lobo. This title will be written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Reilly Brown. It will focus on the new iteration of the character that was introduced during Villains Month in 2013 and garnered much controversy. The new version of the character is considered to be the “real” version, while the classic is a “fake”. That hasn’t settled well with Lobo die hards. Personally, I liked his Villains Month one-shot, so I’m more likely to give this a chance than some.

“The “real” Lobo is the star of our series, and I think he gives us a lot more mileage for new stories and avoiding some of the dangers of the “one trick pony” you mentioned earlier. There’s so much we don’t know about this character, because we’ve only seen him very, very briefly,” Bunn told Comic Book Resources.

Lobo #1 is available October 1.

 

Next up is Trinity of Sin, written by J.M. DeMatteis with art by Yvel Guichet and Jason Gordon. It will focus, obviously, on Pandora, Phantom Stranger, and the Question. It’s not entirely unfamiliar territory for DeMatteis, considering he took over duties for the Pandora solo title that is coming to a close.

DeMatteis told Newsarama a little bit about what to expect from the book: “The first arc is six issues. Without getting into too much detail, the story has to do with the lone survivor of an antediluvian Dark Age who intends to literally bleed the sin out of the Trinity and use it to unleash a spell that will transform the world. The Trinity, of course, set out to stop him.

But these three aren’t a team: Their vast differences, their mutual antagonisms, get in the way—and they fail. Miserably. The world we know is wiped out of existence. The Dark Age rises again.

And things only get worse from there.”

Trinity of Sin #1 is available October 15.
