A new mini-series written by Gilbert Hernandez and illustrated by Darwyn has been announced at the San Diego Comic-con according to comic book resources.

Entertainment Weekly was able to get some info on the series from Gilbert here.

new action figures designed by Darwyn


HitFix Harpy has an exclusive look at the all-new Lee Bermejo and Darwyn Cooke action figure lines that are on display at the DC booth on the Comic-Con show floor. 

To quote HitFix:
"Each figure is inspired by the intricate art styles of their respective artist and the art design is taken straight from the pages of DC’s comics. 
Each of the Darwyn Cooke action figures have 11 points of articulation while the Lee Bermejo models come with 21 points of articulation (save for Lex Luthor, who only has 15.) All of them are made from high quality PVC and are priced at an MSRP of $25 a piece."
Batman! Adam Strange! Harley Quinn! and a terrific Supergirl that includes Krypto and Streaky!
