You've heard me talk about, write about and sing the praises of Serial Box before. Normally it's related to their Marvel stories and other original serialized fiction. Now it looks like Serial Box is expanding into the DC universe. It was announced yesterday that two new titles would be coming to the platform in the Spring of 2021. What better way to start than with Batman and Wonder Woman? Some early information has been released, and looks to include some very interesting characters.
Wonder Woman: Heartless is the first of the original sagas to release and pits Diana Prince, Jill Carlyle (Crimson Avenger), and British archeologist Dr. Barbara Minerva against two sisters — one a serial killer who is terrorizing Washington, D.C. by magically seizing the hearts of her victims, and the other whose powers might potentially be used to stop the killing streak. The writing team includes Natalie C. Parker (Seafire trilogy, Beware the Wild), Tessa Gratton (Strange Grace, The Queens of Innis Lear, Lady Hotspur), Alaya Dawn Johnson (Trouble the Saints, Love Is The Drug, The Summer Prince), Heidi Heilig (The Girl From Everywhere, For A Muse Of Fire, A Kingdom For A Stage). Serial Box’s Head of Content Hayley Wagreich will produce with VP of Content Development Rhoda Belleza.
Batman: The Blind Cut follows the Caped Crusader and Zatanna as they join forces against a terrifying adversary who enacts a bold plan to bring Gotham City to its knees. The writing team is led by the award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Catherynne Valente (Palimpsest, Deathless, The Fairyland novels), and includes K Arsenault Rivera (Knox, The Tiger’s Daughter, The Warrior Moon) and Martin Cahill (“Bear Language,” “It Was Never the Fire”). Serial Box’s Head of Content Hayley Wagreich will produce with VP of Content Marco Palmieri.
You might notice that both stories come from some new talent, who you might not be familiar with in regards to DC storytelling in comics or other formats. You could argue that a fresh perspective can only be a good thing. Since Serial Box offers the option to both read and listen to it's stories, we will have to wait to find out who will narrate each of these tales. Once that information is available, we'll have it for you. You can also keep your eyes and ears open for our upcoming review of both titles.
