JLA/Young Animal: Milk Wars Details & Covers Revealed

DC Comics has shed new light on its upcoming JLA/Young Animal: Milk Wars crossover and it’s, as expected, pretty weird.

The event, first teased at New York Comic Con, will consist of five one-shots uniting various classic DC heroes (some like you’ve never seen them before) with the likes of the Doom Patrol, Mother Panic, Cave Carson and Shade, the Changing Girl.

Brining together the heroes of the Gerard Way-curated Young Animal line of comics, the month-long event will curiously bring alternate versions of DC’s Trinity, repackaged for “new markets” by a nefarious, cosmic, reality-altering corporation called RetCo.

Forget about Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman — Milk Wars is introducing readers to retconned, “wholesome” versions of DC’s Trinity in Milkman Man, Father Bruce and Wonder Wife.

Confused? Read the solicits for each part of the crossover and check out the covers for the first three one-shots below.


JLA/DOOM PATROL SPECIAL #1

  • Written by STEVE ORLANDO and GERARD WAY
  • Art by ACO
  • Backup story written by MAGDALENE VISAGGIO

  • Cover by FRANK QUITELY
  • “MILK WARS” part one! Welcome to the un-event of the year! Kicking off a line-wide adventure, DC’s Young Animal collides with the DC Universe to bring you a different kind of crossover. 
  • The Doom Patrol has discovered that an interdimensional corporation called RetCo has been stealing stories, reconfiguring them and repackaging them for new markets. Our gang of misfit heroes have felt the touch of this nefarious company, and it has already started to change them. Even scarier, though, is how deeply RetCo has embedded itself into current continuity, using the radioactive milk of psychic cows to quell the more dangerous impulses of the Justice League and turn them into heroes safe for the masses. And to kick this off, RetCo has gone all the way to the top.
    Meet Milkman Man, heretofore unknown final son of Krypton, who was sent to our planet to save him from the destruction of his homeworld, only to be adopted by an evil dairy farmer and raised to love all things dairy!
  • Co-plotted by Steve Orlando and Gerard Way, with art by ACO (MIDNIGHTER), this extra-sized special starts “Milk Wars” with a splash!
  • Plus, who is Eternity Girl, and how does she connect to this whole scheme? A special four-part back-up feature by Magdalene Visaggio (Kim and Kim) and Sonny Liew (The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye) begins here.

The only problem is, Milkman Man and RetCo still stand in their way. To right reality, the heroes of Young Animal and the DC Universe will have to unlock an outrageous power never before seen on any world!
  • This mind-blowing conclusion will establish new realities for all of the DC’s Young Animal titles. Look for the return of Cave Carson, Shade and Mother Panic next month!
