In addition to the successful Rebirth line, DC Comics is also shaking things up by giving Gerard Way free rein to run his own imprint in Young Animal.
We caught up with Way to talk about Young Animal at New York Comic Con 2016, and the writer talked about digging into some characters' backstories and telling new kinds of stories across the Young Animal line. The imprint is set to feature modern-day takes on the Doom Patrol, Shade and more characters from DC lore. According to DC, the imprint is inspired by the publisher’s experimental past, and it certainly sounds like Way is having a good time playing in the sandbox.
