A New Anti/Hero From Batman’s Gotham City Comes To DC Comics and It’s Not What You Think? (Sans Spoilers)
DC Comics reports:
Anti/Hero Brings New Faces and Switched Places to the DC Universe
Piper Parajo is an upbeat, popular girl from East Gotham who spends her afternoons stopping crime as a superhero. Sloane MacBrute is a quiet, brilliant outcast who supports her family by stealing for her super-villain grandfather. When a mysterious device causes them to switch bodies, they each have no choice but to try to live as one another while they figure out how to switch back.
One girl’s a hero. The other’s a villain. What could possibly go wrong?
Anti/Hero is DC’s first graphic novel for kids to feature completely new characters and is the brightly-colored brainchild of Young Adult writers Kate Karyus Quinn and Demitria Lunetta. With its mix of Freaky Friday-like hijinks, poignant family drama and thrill-a-minute crimefighting, Anti/Hero may be new now, but we suspect it’s a DC classic in the making and is worth a look whether you’re a kid or kid-at-heart. After all, who’s never dreamed of being someone else?
To discuss how their new book came together and learn more about Anti/Hero’s two main characters, we invited Kate and Demitria to answer a few questions…and discovered that the dynamic duo behind Anti/Hero’s panels is almost as entertaining as the one within them.
That interview is here along with preview pages..
