The DARIA Universe Returns as MTV Announces JODIE

TVLine:

MTV announced Thursday that it has ordered to series a Jodie-centric Daria spinoff, with black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross set to voice the title role.

Titled Jodie, the animated offshoot will follow Daria’s onetime schoolmate “as she comes into her own and enters the workplace in her first post-college job in tech.” Other former students of Lawndale High will also appear in the series.

Weird that we aren’t getting a proper Daria return, but I’m interested in seeing how this turns out never the less.

DC Comics Relaunching the LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES with Brian Michael Bendis

IGN:

The Legion of Super Heroes drought at DC Comics is about to end. Today DC revealed that Superman writer Brian Michael Bendis will be spearheading an ambitious relaunch of the franchise with September’s Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium.

LoSH: Millennium is a two-issue miniseries that will set the stage for a new ongoing Legion title from Bendis and artist Ryan Sook. Each issue will feature four vignettes focused on different members of the 31st Century team. The series will be anchored a familiar DC heroine who mysteriously gains immortality as she encounters the Legion in the future. This relaunch will also draw in other futuristic DC heroes, including Batman Beyond, Booster Gold and Kamandi.

I don’t know that Bendis is the guy I think of when I think of massive, futuristic storytelling (surprised this wasn’t Jonathan Hickman), but it could still turn out well enough.

Entertainment Weekly Gets a First Look at Tom King’s BATMAN/CATWOMAN

EW.com:

In Batman Returns, Selina Kyle’s apartment contains a neon sign that’s supposed to say “Hello There.” But a couple letters have gone out, turning the display into “Hell Here.” The duality between those sentiments also applies to Selina’s upcoming reunion with Bruce Wayne in the pages of Tom King’s Batman comic. The playful romance between Batman and Catwoman has been a cornerstone of King’s story, but Bat has also been stuck in a depressive spiral ever since Cat left him at the altar in last year’s “wedding” issue. Now Batman’s at his lowest point, Gotham’s at its lowest point, and Catwoman returns — and EW has your exclusive first look below.

I’m still bummed that this won’t be in Batman proper (I think the New Gods stuff is PR spin), but I’m still excited to see how King’s run ends, regardless of the title on the cover.
