Classic Hanna-Barbera Characters Coming to DC

That’s right kids! 2016 is going to see a line of comics featuring such titles as Scooby Apocalypse, Future Quest, Wacky Race Land and The Flintstones with more possible titles to come. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio said of the project:

“was always a fan of the old Hanna-Barbera characters, having grown up on them. I think what you find right now is there’s so much material on pop culture, and these characters resonate with so much of our fanbase. It was so fun to go out and look at them, but not just bring back versions that existed 40, 50 years ago and really look at it the way of saying, if these characters were created and interpreted today, how would they exist? So we handed off our materials to a number of top creators, and what came back was an exciting look that felt very true to the existence of the characters.”

DiDio hit Twitter to share some of the creative teams on the coming books:

  • The Flintstones written by Mark Russell with art by Amanda Conner
  • Wacky Race Land by Mark Sexton and Ken Pontac
  • Future Quest, featuring Hanna-Barbera actionheroes such as Space Ghost and Jonny Quest, comes from Jeff Parker and Evan “Doc” Shaner
  • Scooby Apocalypse from Jim Lee, Keith Giffen and Howard Porter
