May 23, 2018, Mt. Laurel, NJ: After their biggest launch of the year to date, Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the release of Project Superpowers #1. Picking up from the special introductory priced #0 issue, the exciting new series kicks into high gear with the fan-favorite creative team of writer Rob Williams (Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn) and artist Sergio Davila (Injustice, Superman) at the helm. As part of the series 10th anniversary celebration, this first issue features an all-star line-up of cover artists and special retailer incentives.
The Project Superpowers heroes came from the past, now they have to prove their relevance in the modern world. A 21st Century threat is coming for us all. What dread secrets does The Death Defying Devil hold? The Lighthouse will rise and the Spirit of The American Flag will take on a new host. But will it be enough? Can superheroes still save the day? Williams got his start in 2002 as a publisher/creator with Com.X then worked with a variety of publisher including Dynamite, 2000A.D. and Marvel before landing with DC where he started his critically-acclaimed on-going run of Suicide Squad in October 2016 that continues on 38 issues later.
Davila began his professional career with Dynamite on the Lord of the Jungle series in 2012 and has provided work for Red Sonja, Vampirella and other of the publisher’s top series. He has recently started working with DC on Wonder Woman and Superman but jumped at the chance to draw Dynamite’s most powerful heroes.
