The Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani team are back at DC Comics for a six-issue miniseries titled “Super Powers”. The all-ages title will pick up where the “Superman Family Adventures” series left off. In an interview with Newsarama.com the pair discuss how they pitched the miniseries to Dan DiDio, and what we can expect from the first issue…
Can you give us an introduction to the first issue? What’s the premise?
Baltazar: Batman is missing.
Aureliani: What happened to him?
Baltazar: Yeah, how come he’s not here?
The Bat-signal is flashing and he’s not showing up. And Commissioner Gordon keeps looking at his watch saying, where is he? So we see what happens from there.
Superman might help out. Wonder Woman might help out. And as the story continues, we don’t just stick to Gotham City and Metropolis. We’re all over the DC Universe.
This is stuff we would do if we were writing the real DC Universe.
Look for the first issue of “Super Powers” to be released in November.
