Fire & Ice are back - with a new series at DC
DC Comics announced today that Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville will debut in September
The 'Dawn of DC' initiative continues next month with the previously announced one-off Power Girl Special by Leah Williams and Marguerite Sauvage, spinning out of the character’s back-up strip in recent issues of Action Comics — but DC today announced that the special is also the launching point for two all-new series beginning this fall.
Power Girl Special #1 will feature, as expected, Power Girl (and spin off into a Power Girl series), but it will also include a back-up strip that will feature Fire and Ice, formerly of the Justice League International, by Joanne Starer, Natasha Bustos and Tamra Bonvillain. In Justice League International, the two heroes get mixed up with Ice’s ex, Guy Gardner, while all three are responding to a natural disaster in Baltimore. Things, as it turns out, don’t go well.
In fact, they go so poorly that September sees the launch of Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville, a six-issue series by the same creative team that sees the heroes exiled by Superman to his home town, in the hopes of keeping them out of trouble. The only problem being, Fire is actively looking for as much trouble as it takes to end up back in the big leagues. (Pun potentially intended.)
Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #1 (of 6) goes on sale September 5.
