DC Entertainment, the home of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and a legion of other heroes, is planning two new graphic novel imprints aimed at younger readers. DC Zoom will feature stories for middle school readers, and DC Ink will focus on young adults. Books from the two divisions are scheduled to come out in the fall.

"Superman Smashes the Klan"

Well, that deserves to be checked out.
 
I see on DC's press release that one upcoming GN appears to be an adaptation by Marie Lu of the YA Batman book she did recently. I'll be curious to see it.

I think it's a smart way to draw in younger readers and females. Guess we'll see how it plays out.

That's a very David Mazouz-looking young Bruce Wayne...

My 10 year old son loves Balthazar Franco. He follows his stuff like I would follow Alex Ross, Paul Dini or Geoff Johns.
