DC Comics' young adult fiction line, DC Ink, revealed the creative teams and cover art for four of its titles due out in Spring 2020 at BookCon 2019.
At the DC Ink panel at the book convention, the imprint revealed the covers for The Oracle Code, Gotham High, Shadow of the Batgirl and The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Graphic Novel. The four new novels follow the recently launched Mera and Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale, as well as the forthcoming Teen Titans: Raven and Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass, which continues the line's goal of telling brand new stories about these iconic heroes for younger audiences.
First up is The Oracle Code. Marieke Nijkamp (This Is Where It Ends ) is set to write the book and Manuel Preitano (Grimm Fairy Tales) will illustrate. Unfortunately, a description has not yet been provided for The Oracle Code -- or any of its fellow 2020 releases -- but the book will focus on Barbara Gordon's Oracle.
Next up is Gotham High, which sees YA author Melissa de la Cruz writing and Thomas Pitilli (Archie) on art. Melissa is perhaps best known for her Blue Bloods books, as well as her Beauchamp Family series, which was adapted for television by Lifetime.
One of the most impressive additions to the announced creative teams is that of Sarah Kuhn, who will be writing Shadow of the Batgirl. Kuhn, of course, has written the critically acclaimed Heroine Complex series, which offers a much different take on superheroes. Joining Kuhn on the book is artist Nicole Goux, who contributed artwork to the comics anthology, Puerto Rico Stron.
And last, but not least, is The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Novel, which will be written by Michael Moreci (Roche Limit) and illustrated by Sas Milledge.
While official release dates have not been unveiled for each of the above titles, the latest collection is set to launch in Spring 2020. Should they follow the release dates of DC Ink's most recent releases, of course, the titles should release in quick succession, so fans shouldn't have to wait too long to dive into this new stories featuring some of their favorite DC Comics characters. DC Ink titles are meant for those at least 13 years of age, while DC Zoom offers titles for the younger demographic.
