Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville
New series coming in September!
What’s this? ANOTHER new series announcement??
Yep. I’m writing a new title for DC Comics, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville. It’s your old Justice League favorites who, for some reason, have never gotten their own book….until now!
Illustrated by artist Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur, Miles Morales: Spider-Man) and colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Wonder Woman, Batman/Superman: World's Finest), lettered by GLAAD-award winning letterer Ariana Maher, and edited by Andrea Shea (DC Pride). We’ve got an incredible all-female team on this one, folks.
The action begins before the series even starts, with a 10-page backup in the the Power Girl Special #1 by powerhouse team Leah Williams (X-Terminators, X-Factor) and artist Marguerite Sauvage (Action Comics).
In the introductory tale, Fire and Ice respond to a natural disaster in Baltimore, debating whether to involve Ice’s old flame Guy Gardner. When Guy causes some major drama at the scene, Superman gets involved to stop the fight.
Here’s a little never-before-seen sneak peak at that story, just for our loyal Substack readers!
We then pick up the action on September 5th, in the pages of Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville!
In Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #1, Superman sent the former Justice Leaguers packing for Smallville to lie low following their extremely public and utterly disastrous mission in Baltimore, and in doing so doomed them to a fate worse than death: irrelevance. Ice finds herself drawn to the quiet life and dreams of planting roots. But Fire…well, Fire will do just about anything to get the hell outta dodge and back on the Super Hero circuit—including challenging the DC Universe’s biggest villains to a knock-down, drag-out, live-streamed brawl in the streets of Smallville! The series is crafted by writer Starer, artist Bustos, colorist Bonvillain, and letterer Maher. Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #1 hits shelves on September 5.
