DC Vice President of Sales and Revenue Nancy Spears teased several upcoming comic book projects at the annual ComicsPRO retailer event. Spears also confirmed that DC will be taking part in this year’s Free Comic Book Day event on May 1, 2021.
Spears shared a number of titles that will be coming from DC this year, but she saved the specifics for future announcements. Some of the projects include:
- Deathstroke Inc.
- Harley Quinn Animated Series sequel
- A Wonder Woman 80th Anniversary title
- “DC Vampires” (working title)
- Robin and Batman
- Joker: A Puzzle Box
- The Legend of Batman
- Crush and Lobo
- Nubia and the Amazons

Spears was joined at the event by DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee, new SVP and General Manager Daniel Cherry III, and Editor-In-Chief Marie Javins. Lee eased retailer’s concerns by reaffirming “…DC’s commitment to publishing comic books and the direct market, echoing comments made in an August 2020 interview with the Hollywood Reporter, referencing 2020 sales successes such as Batman: Three Jokers, DCeased: Dead Planet, Batman: The Joker War, and Dark Nights: Death Metal. “
Lee also noted that more than $1.1 million dollars was raised last year for the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC) fund to help struggling comic book stores.
