The 4 Least Looked Forward To DC Mini-Relaunch Titles Are The 4 I Am Most Looking Forward To

A bunch of comic fans were surveyed asking which of the DC books launching in June are they most looking forward to. Now bear in mind the publicity on these comics has been restricted to names, numbers, a few covers and whatever has sneaked out of the retailer roadshows. I understand that PR-based interviews arranged with a number of what are known at DC as "media outlet partner" sites have been embargoed throughout March.

But there are four that stick out as having less appeal than the others.


Prez by Mark Russell and Ben Caldwell. A teenage girl elected to the post of Presidency via Twitter with a very Grant Morrison era Doom Patrol feel.


Doomed by Scott Lobdell and Javier Fernandez. A teenager infected by Doomedness, transforming into a version of the creature that killed Superman.

Section Eight by Garth Ennis and John McCrea. The return of the stupidest superhero team ever from the pages of Hitman. And since this is a reboot, everyone who dies can be alive!

Mystic U by Alisa Kwitney and Mauricet. Hogwarts University, from Neil Gaiman collaborator and the Belgian artist for Spirou.

Which is a shame because they are probably the four titles I am most interested in. Maybe I can help do something about that.
