DC’s ENDLESS WINTER to start, also end in December

This article originally appeared on this site

Endless Winter, a story that DC Comics has been obliquely teasing for a few weeks now, will start in December, which is actually almost the same month it will end despite the name suggesting it would be infinitely longer.

Joking aside, the story is a nine-parter, spread across five new comic book days, the first of which is December 1 and the last January 5. Ron Marz and Andy Lanning will co-write all nine parts, which will be brought to life by a stable of artists such as Howard Porter, Clayton Henry, Phil Hester, Jesus Merino, and more.

The plot of this story is as follows: “1000 years ago, a disparate group of heroes – Hippolyta, Black Adam, Swamp Thing and the Viking Prince – banded together to prevent the world from freezing at the hands of the Frost King, an exiled Norse god with the ability to control entire ecosystems. The heroes triumphed, but victory came at a terrible price, one that has been kept secret until now.”

You can find the full PR for the event, along with some of the covers from the issues, below…enjoy!

DC PRESENTS JUSTICE LEAGUE: ENDLESS WINTER

Nine-Issue December Event Pits The World’s Greatest Super-Heroes

Against an Ancient Enemy

This December, the Justice League learns firsthand the meaning of “Revenge is a dish best served cold,” in Justice League: Endless Winter, a nine-issue event taking place throughout the month of December.

1000 years ago, a disparate group of heroes – Hippolyta, Black Adam, Swamp Thing and the Viking Prince – banded together to prevent the world from freezing at the hands of the Frost King, an exiled Norse god with the ability to control entire ecosystems. The heroes triumphed, but victory came at a terrible price, one that has been kept secret until now.

It spans a total of nine titles, all co-written by Ron Marz and Andy Lanning. “Getting to play with such a great cast of cool superheroes is like catnip for me,” said Lanning. “From the Justice League to Teen Titans, Aquaman to Black Adam and, probably my personal favorite, Justice League Dark, there are so many moments to showcase that there’s something for everyone.”
