In a portion of today’s DC All Access, DC Comics announced a new ongoing series for the ever-changing New 52: Infinity Man and the Forever People.
The characters are some of the many creations of the late Jack Kirby, having first been introduced in 1971. The new series will be penned by Keith Giffen and DC Editor-in-Chief Dan Didio, with art by Giffen and Scott Koblish.
This marks a continued effort by the company to push the boundaries of its super-hero-heavy offerings. While the title will exist in the same continuity as the vast majority of DC’s books, the fantastical science fiction aspects of the concept should lend some much-needed flavor to the lineup.
