DC Comics took to Twitter this morning to announce a “Strange Adventures” series from a creative team of Tom King, Evan “Doc” Shaner, and Mitch Gerads. Based on the two teaser images the company tweeted out, the series will follow the cosmic exploits of Adam Strange.
No other plot points for the series have been released, but King and Gerads are no strangers when it comes to working together. Just this weekend, the duo’s “Mister Miracle” won Best Limited Series at the 2019 Eisner Awards. King additionally took home the Eisner for Best Writer for “Mister Miracle,” while Gerads won Best Penciler/Inker for his interiors on the series. It remains to be seen how the art duties will be split up between Shaner and Gerads, but with Shaner being listed ahead of Gerads in DC’s billing, it’s safe to speculate that he will at least be doing some interior penciling here. Shaner was previously the cover artist on “Adam Strange/Future Quest Special” #1 that DC released in 2017.
“Mister Miracle” from King and Gerads was a 12-issue maxi-series that began in 2017 and ended its run last year, but DC has yet to announce how many issues “Strange Adventures” will run, nor have they said when its first issue will hit comic book stores.
