Readers will have a chance to catch up with the Jetsons later this year, when this family from the future joins DC Comics’ Hanna-Barbera line of comics. The Jetsons will be a six-issue miniseries written by Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Pier Brito, with covers by Amanda Conner.
The series stars “family man” George; his wife Jane, “a NASA scientist”; daughter Judy, “a social butterfly”; Elroy, “who loves robot tech”; Astro, “the family pooch”; and Rosie the Robot, “who is now programmed with the consciousness of George’s mother.” In the upcoming comic, The Jetsons will grapple with an incoming threat from the darkest corners of the galaxy.
DC’s Hanna-Barbera titles reimagine fan-favorite animated series for a new era. The Flintstones, Scooby Apocalypse and Future Quest have also made the leap from cartoon to comics as part of this line.
Fans got a sneak peek at The Jetsons in an eight-page backup story in DC’s Flintstones/Booster Gold crossover comic. The story was also brought to life by Palmiotti, Conners and Brito and dealt with the shocking revelation that Rosemary Jetson, George’s dying mother, had her consciousness transferred over to Rosie the Robot.
The Jetsons #1 goes on sale November 1.
