DC announces 11 surprise new 2021 titles

DC gave a virtual presentation to comic book retailers at this year's annual ComicsPro event, and announced 11 new titles that it plans to publish in 2021.

The upcoming new titles include (as briefly described by DC):

Deathstroke Inc.
Harley Quinn Animated Series sequel
A Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary title
Elseworld (1/2 of the new center of the new DC Omniverse)
"DC Vampires" (described as a working title)
Robin and Batman
Joker: A Puzzle Box
The Legend of Batman
Crush and Lobo
Nubia and the Amazons
DC Middle Ages

In a follow-up announcement, the publisher said more information will be forthcoming on these projects throughout the year.

The publisher also announced their intention to participate in Free Comic Book Day 2021 on August 14, another annual event that has traditionally happened on the first Saturday in May but was scuttled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis and was scheduled this year for August for the same reason.

The publisher reports its virtual presentation to the retailer-only audience included DC publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee, new SVP and general manager Daniel Cherry III, and editor-in-chief Marie Javins, with Lee "reaffirming DC's commitment to publishing comic books and the direct market."

DC says it referenced 2020 sales successes such as Batman: Three Jokers, DCeased: Dead Planet, Batman: The Joker War, and Dark Nights: Death Metal.

According to DC, Javins commented on the "positive reception received by new characters such as Punchline, Clownhunter, Liar Liar, and Ghost-Maker and spoke to DC's ongoing commitment to a more additive universe of characters."

What did I miss? 3 what now?

The thing is DC didn't say if any or all of these are series or what. Could be series, could be OGN, or those teen OGN's or heck ... maybe that is what Jimmy was talking about?

Hell, I don't know what Jimmy was talking about. Does he?
