Add Manhunter and The Question to the list of DC Comics characters starring in their own back-up stories.
They join a “co-feature” lineup that includes the previously announced Metal Men, Blue Beetle and Ravager. Beginning in June, the publisher will increase the cover price on some of its titles to $3.99, but will add a second story to each of those books.
According to the Batman solicitations for June, The Question (Renee Montoya) will debut in her co-feature in Detective Comics, which now stars Batwoman. Detective scribe Greg Rucka will write The Question story, with Cully Hamner (Blue Beetle) providing the art.
Fresh from the cancellation of her own title in March, Manhunter will move into the back-up spot in the new Batman: Streets of Gotham. Kate Spencer’s adventures will be penned by Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko and drawn by Georges Jeanty (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 8).
Expect more co-features to be revealed on Monday when DC’s full solicitations are released.
