Ok, before you start asking me questions in the comments, we’re talking about a comic book crossover event so meta it could only come from the pocket of the DC Universe under Gerard Way’s supervision. JLA/Young Animal: Milk Wars is currently the most bizarre thing DC has coming in 2018. Milk Wars will begin in January 31 with the first of five limited issues which will pit the weird heroes of the Young Animal imprint against Milkman Man, a super sanitized version of Superman, who works for RetCo, an interdimensional corporation with the power to steal and rewrite realities to then “repackage” and sell them to new markets. Per the description in DC’s solicitations, courtesy of CBR:
Even scarier, though, is how deeply RetCo has embedded itself into current continuity, using the radioactive milk of psychic cows to quell the more dangerous impulses of the Justice League and turn them into heroes safe for the masses.
I wanna read this thing right now.
DC’s event will not only deal with the new reality of the Son of Krypton, but will also show us the new realities of the other members of DC’s Trinity of superheroes, where Batman is now known as Father Bruce, who has devoted his entire life and millions to saving orphaned kids that can later fill the “deep demand for sidekicks”, and Wonder Wife, a Diana whose not just a perfect and beautiful housewife, but also the psycothic and dangerous ruler of Wonderland.
The first book of the event will be LA/Doom Patrol Special #1 written by Steve Orlando and Gerard Way, with a backup story by Magdalene Visaggio. Art will be handled by ACO and Sonny Liew, and the cover will be a Frank Quitely production. The event will be contained to the five issues that will go out over the course of a month with no tie-ins, turning it into an excellent starting point to jump on and follow the adventures of heroes like Shade, Cave Carson and Mother Panic.
