Courtesy of Diamond Daily,the daily retailer newsletter. there are a few ComicsPRO announcements which didn't make it to Bleeding Cool's 52 Story List… but we're very happy to add them here!

DC plans to celebrate Jack "King" Kirby's 100th birthday in 2017 with a series of specials,

May will bring the debut of MediSIN, from Action Lab, in which a criminal mastermind recruits a team of luckless physicians to provide medical aid for supervillains.

In June, Action Lab's all-ages line expands with Kid Sherlock and Adventures in Crime.

July will see the return of the Actionverse, from Action Lab, along with new stories from the bestselling Miraculous.

After noting the success of its hit series Lord of Gore and the release of the third volume of its bestseller Plume, Devil's Due tantalized retailers with new projects including the Dirk Manning Omnibus (featuring tales by the popular writer) and The Circuit (a new robot s-f action title), both coming this summer.

Heroes Initiative will conduct a fundraising contest in late 2017. The store that raises the most money for the charity will receive an in-store appearance by legendary artist George Péréz.

Lion Forge will get its own PREVIEWS section, beginning with the April catalogue.

Space Goat will release a  new line of  Backpack Editions, perfect-bound, 9" x 6" volumes that are designed for libraries and families.
