At the Young Animal panel which took place during Comic-Con International in San Diego, it was announced that the Gerard Way-curated line of titles would be crossing over with the larger DC Universe in a series of one-shot annuals that would change the direction of the pop-up imprint for 2018.
Now, DC has released more information on the crossover, including details of the first annual which will see the Doom Patrol meet-up with the Justice League of America in a one-shot by Gerard Way, Steve Orlando and ACO.
The information was unveiled on DC’s own site, which confirms that the crossover event will mark the end of the first phase of the imprint and send each of the series into bold new directions for the new year.
Each series has already crossed over with the DC Universe in its own way, whether small or big. Superman recently cameoed in an issue of Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, while Batman, Batwoman and Gotham’s roster of vigilantes are a constant presence in Mother Panic. The specials seem to be shining a light on these connections and bringing Young Animal more in line with the regular DC Rebirth continuity, if only for a month, and may settle questions about where they fit in the larger DC Universe landscape.
Doom Patrol Special #1 by Gerard Way, Steve Orlando and ACO is due out in January. Check out Frank Quitely’s cover below.
