All Ages ‘Super Powers’ Series from Baltazar and Franco Announced

Aw yeah, Super Powers!

DC just announced a new all-ages miniseries from Art Baltazar and Franco, the minds behind such greats as Superman Family Adventures and Tiny Titans.

The synopsis, thanks to Comic Vine’s exclusive report:

Aw yeah, the World’s Greatest Heroes are back in a new, all-ages miniseries—except for Batman! Superman helps out by cleaning up in Gotham City, where he discovers a clue that sends Wonder Woman into space to find the Caped Crusader. Her journey brings her a step closer to Batman, but can she uncover the truth behind his disappearance? From the award-winning creative team that brought you TINY TITANS and SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES!

After the genuinely fantastic Superman and Titans series, as well as a good run on the Green Lantern: The Animated Series tie-in, this is great news for anyone looking for a solid all-ages book.  Besides being aimed at a general audience, their works are always full of clever in-jokes and surprisingly obscure references to the DC mythos.  Plus, based on the synopsis, it looks like this will add credence to my theory that adding “…in space” to anything makes it at least 47% more awesome.

The first issue of the six issue miniseries will ship November 23.  Hopefully it includes Lunch Lady Darkseid.
