Yesterday word hit the social media streets that Gail Simone will be helming a new original title for DC come May 2013. The Movement will feature art from Freddie Williams II, with the #1’s cover done by Amanda Conner as well as a variant from Cliff Chiang. A different sort of superhero title, Simone indicates that The Movement will concern the disenfranchised of the DC universe and how marginalized people interact with superpowered heroes and villains. Interestingly, Art Baltazar and Franco will be representing another side of political comics for DC with their new title The Green Team, also out in May.
Simone is known for not skirting around political topics in her writing, so I’m definitely interested to see how The Movement shakes out. Will you be pre-ordering either of these titles?
