DC Returns to Elseworlds


At New York Comic Con, DC announced the return of its ELSEWORLDS line of comics, revealing upcoming comic book titles Gotham by Gaslight: The Kryptonian Age, Batman the Barbarian, Green Lantern: Dark, with more to come. Scheduled to publish in 2024, DC’s new ELSEWORLDS lineup will also include sequels to best-selling series Dark Knights of Steel and DC vs. Vampires.

DC’s original ELSEWORLDS line was established in 1991, with the release of Batman: Holy Terror, by Alan Brennert and Norm Breyfogle. For the next two decades, ELSEWORLDS became the host for new and innovative stories featuring DC Super Heroes in settings outside regular DC comic book continuity. This new direction produced enduring and iconic stories, such as Kingdom Come by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, Batman & Dracula: Red Rain, by Doug Moench and Kelley Jones, Superman: Red Son by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett, Justice League: The Nail, by Alan Davis, and more.


“Out-of-continuity stories have always been a pillar of DC publishing, granting creators the ability to explore all the wild corners of the DC Universe,” said DC Executive Editor Ben Abernathy. “We’re excited to bring a whole new slate of titles under the ELSEWORLDS banner in 2024, combining some all-new titles from top storytellers, as well as sequels from the current DC line that fit that same out-of-continuity aesthetic.”


DC’s new ELSEWORLDS lineup will include:



Green Lantern Dark by Tate Brombal and Werther Dell’Edera reimagines the DC Universe as a dark fantasy wasteland where monsters overrun a post-apocalyptic earth. The battle between good and evil ended long ago.


Now, darkness prevails as humanity struggles to survive on a corrupted planet. Only one hero remains, the one who wields the green flame that can return light to a dark world—The Green Lantern. But she’s been missing for years, and, on the isolated island of New England, the horrors only get worse by the night.
