DC Comics Digital First is offering up tow new titles today, with the first one we’re previewing being From Beyond the Unknown #2 with two stories. The first one features Jack Kirby’s Kamandi with the second focussing on an old-school 1980s Legion of Super-Heroes in a kidnapping caper amongst the stars. This latter tale is by Dan Jurgens and Scott Eaton, Wayne Faucher and colors by Hi-Fi.
“Story 1 – On Earth-A.D. (After Disaster), the world is a very different place-a post-apocalyptic wasteland, full of talking animals and other strange sights. While exploring his dystopian home, Kamandi, the last living human, stumbles upon a robot butler patiently awaiting the return of his human masters, who disappeared years before. Kamandi takes pity on the loyal butler and tries to reunite him with his long-lost family…however unusual that reunion might be.
Story 2 – In the far future of the 31st century, the super-powered teens known as the Legion of Super-Heroes protect all the citizens of the United Planets. But when Legionnaires Sun Boy and Wildfire are kidnapped, their teammates must infiltrate a mysterious ice planet to try to save their friends…and the planet!”
Here’s a preview of the Kamandi strip ‘The Butler’ by Tom Sniegoski , Eric Gapstur and Marissa Louise.
