DC’s crossover game is strong lately. Not only do we have things like Justice League/Power Rangers on the way, along with the next Batman/TMNT crossover, the company has now announced that several of its weird (and very wonderful) comic takes on Hanna-Barbera characters will now host a series of team-ups with DC’s own finest heroes.
DC has announced a new series of annuals set to launch in March next year, which will first pair up the ongoing Flintstones and Future Quest series with Booster Gold (from Mark Russell, Rick Leonardi and Scott Hanna) and Adam Strange (from Marc Andreyoko, Jeff Parker and Steve Lieber), respectively. On top of those two, there’ll be two new mashups not currently associated with one of DC’s ongoing Hanna-Barbera comics: Green Lantern/Space Ghost, from James Tynion IV, Chris Sebela and Ariel Olivetti, and (most amazingly) Suicide Squad/Banana Splits, by Tony Bedard and Ben Caldwell.
On top of all that, each annual will also feature a backup story based on a different Hanna-Barbera property — The Jetsons, Snagglepuss, Ruff and Ready and Top Cat — that DC hints as “a sneak peek at what’s upcoming from [our] new takes on classic Hanna-Barbera animated characters”.
The current crop of Hanna-Barbera comics has done some pretty ridiculous stuff with these characters, so honestly, we can’t wait to see what DC has in store for this. All four annuals will be available from 29 March 2017.
