DC’s full solicitations for July won’t be out until Monday, April 17, but we’ve got an exclusive first look at the Young Animal titles for that month. Young Animal has been one of the most successful DC experiments of recent memory, mixing dynamic creators with stories that blur the line between the classic DC Universe, the tone of early 1990’s Vertigo, and a freewheeling, independent spirit that consistently surprises.
Thanks to DC for giving us this sneak peek, and make sure to grab the books come July!
BUG!: THE ADVENTURES OF FORAGER #3
Written by LEE ALLRED—Art and cover by MICHAEL ALLRED—Backup story and art by JAMES HARVEY—Variant cover by AARON CONLEY
Forager’s latest tumble through time and space lands him in a rough wilderness. There he meets the muscleman Atlas, who himself has run afoul of Chagra, the mysterious figure that caused the reality shards that put Forager on this multidimensional trip to begin with. What happens when a Bug of New Genesis teams up with a legendary powerhouse like Atlas? It’s a story we could only call “Atlas Bugged”!

Written by GERARD WAY—Art by MICHAEL ALLRED—Cover by MICHAEL ALLRED—Variant cover by NICK DERINGTON
How have you been, Niles Caulder? The Chief is back, and he’s ready to reshape the new Doom Patrol to be just like the old Doom Patrol—a prospect not everyone is happy with. But the team’s former leader hasn’t grown less manipulative in his old age, so nobody make any rash decisions. Pretty sure he’s up to something. Michael Allred (iZOMBIE, Silver Surfer) joins the team for this special issue.
